The consumerization of IT and the growing number of various devices used in the enterprise means that cross-platform, high-performance mobile device management (MDM) is essential. The use of mobile devices in companies can only increase pro­ductivity and add optimal capacity to perform outside of traditional office settings when access to key corporate resources and comprehensive file management func­tions are guaranteed. Cortado Server is not limited just to the management of devices, but it also provides a complete solution for secure and seamless integration of tablets, smartphones and laptops in the IT enterprise. It allows for users and appli­cations to be centrally managed, along with the users’ rights, policies, profiles, cer­tificates and security settings for access to the corporate network.

The most important prerequisite for this is Cortado Server. The world’s first solu­tion to combine powerful MDM with a unique cloud-desktop approach. Whether iPad, iPhone, Android or Macs, all devices can be seam­lessly, securely and efficiently integrated into the corporate IT environment as well as be professionally managed.

In addition apps can be recommended and cross-platform links to the respective app stores deployed to users. At the same time, employees benefit from mobile corporate access and thanks to full desktop capabilities, can work on the go with their mobile device just as productively as in a traditional office setting.
