InnoPath Software, the specialist in Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions, has entered into an OEM agreement with O3SIS of Cologne, Germany, to bring to market a complete Integrated Mobile Device Management (iMDM) based Backup & Restore solution.
As operators migrate from early MDM deployments focused on firmware-over-the-air (FOTA) and configuration management, to a focus on enabling new revenue generating applications, the ability to provide end-to-end lifecycle security management through the iMDM platform is a key requirement for services that include Lock & Wipe, Backup & Restore, and Anti-Virus/Firewall.
"The MDM platform plays a critical role in lifecycle customer management," said David Ginsburg, VP of Marketing and Product Management at InnoPath. "The Backup & Restore solution rounds out a comprehensive security solution based on our industry-leading iMDM Server Suite."
A leader in the Backup & Restore space, O3SIS serves more than twenty implementations in production with leading operators including Vodafone, T-Mobile, O2 and many others. By partnering with O3SIS, InnoPath is able to offer consumer and enterprise customers of operators the Backup & Restore capability as another advantage of its iMDM suite. This results in security of data storage, reduced churn and minimized revenue loss when devices are lost, stolen, or upgraded, and convenience through a remote over-the-air approach.
"Mobile Backup & Restore provides peace of mind for the end-customers of mobile operators and builds on the importance to drive additional revenue-generating voice, messaging and data applications" said Bernd Rützel, Chief Sales Officer at O3SIS.
By enhancing InnoPath's iMDM Lock & Wipe capabilities with Backup & Restore, a lost or stolen device can be locked and secured in an instant, or wiped clean altogether with the ability to restore and retrieve data at another point in time if the phone is found or the subscriber buys a replacement. This ability also ensures that if the device falls into the wrong hands, it's nothing more than a brick.
