Zenprise Announces Support for Windows 8, Windows RT and Windows Phone 8

Mobile Device Management Leader Helps Organizations Maximize Mobility Investments Across Devices and Platforms

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 30, 2012) - Zenprise®, Inc., the recognized leader and innovator in mobile device management (MDM), today announced it will provide support for Windows 8, Windows RT and Windows Phone 8. The upcoming release of Zenprise Mobile Manager 8.0 later this year will add capabilities to allow customers to better manage employee-owned and corporate-issued Windows Phone 8 devices.

The release of Windows 8, Windows RT and Windows Phone 8 provides even more choices for consumers and their employers. The broad array of consumer-owned devices accessing the enterprise requires a simple and secure solution to manage the broad number of devices, operating systems, and apps that access corporate information.

"By supporting the new capabilities of the Windows 8, Windows RT and Windows Phone 8 platforms, Zenprise will help global organizations generate even greater returns from their existing technology investments," said Eric Hermelee, senior director Windows Phone Division, Microsoft Corp. "We're excited to welcome Zenprise to the diverse group of solution providers adding value for our mutual enterprise customers. Windows Phone 8 delivers powerful new ways in which employees can participate and contribute to the conversation with Office and Outlook mobile. Zenprise is helping organizations manage successful BYOD programs and drive innovation with enterprise mobility."

"Our customers have been eagerly anticipating the release of Windows Phone 8. The new platform will extend their existing Microsoft investment and let them seamlessly transition to a mobile world," said Amit Pandey, Zenprise CEO and president. "A key Zenprise differentiator is we easily snap into our customers' existing Microsoft infrastructure, from Active Directory to Microsoft Certificate Authority to SharePoint and Office 365. Supporting Windows Phone 8 aligns nicely with this strategy, and we look forward to continuing to add value on top of the platform."
