SOTI MobiControl Empowers Westbury Public Schools to Embrace Mobile Learning

LONG ISLAND, NY, Oct. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - SOTI Inc., the world-leader in enterprise Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), announced today the successful implementation of its award-winning solution, MobiControl, for Westbury Public Schools, a pioneering education school district in Long Island, New York. Equipped with SOTI MobiControl, Westbury Public Schools has the ability to manage, secure and support their ZTE Optik tablets over the Sprint network, reducing device management costs while ensuring compliance with security standards.

With more than a decade of expertise and over 10,000 customers worldwide, SOTI MobiControl enables organizations to manage and secure millions of corporate and employee-owned devices and to enforce BYOD policies.  SOTI has an expanding customer base of school districts, education boards and Universities that are successfully managing their mobile and e-learning programs with MobiControl's innovative technology. MobiControl's advanced management and security features include: Secure Content Library, Self Service Portal, Enterprise App Store, Device Lockdown/Kiosk Mode, Real-Time Remote Control, Location Tracking, Geofencing and more.

As educators are leveraging mobility to enhance the learning experience, schools must ensure students only use devices as intended and do not abuse the technology. Using MobiControl's lockdown/kiosk mode functionality, Westbury Public Schools can restrict the students' ability to use specific device features and applications, limiting their access to unauthorized device controls and applications. This reduces support costs from device malfunctions caused by students changing device settings and also ensures that Westbury is complaint with CIPA (Child Information Protection Act). Through MobiControl's centralized Web Console, the school district can deploy application updates and synchronize data over-the-air for their entire fleet of mobile devices. In addition, relying on MobiControl's robust remote control and help desk technology, IT administrators can troubleshoot and fix device issues in a matter of minutes.

Carl Rodrigues, President and CEO, SOTI said, "SOTI MobiControl enables education institutions to embrace enterprise mobility while ensuring compliance with stringent education sector security standards and regulations. We are very pleased to have empowered Westbury Public Schools to manage, secure and support their ZTE tablets with ease and confidence through our flagship solution, MobiControl."

Jay Marcucci, Director of Technology, Communication & Information Services, Westbury Public Schools said, "With MobiControl, we now have the ability to provide fast remote support to fix any device issues and deploy applications over-the-air, which has increased the efficiency of both IT departments and educators, and reduced the costs associated with managing mobility. Also, MobiControl allows us to grant access to a pre-defined list of applications and content, enabling educators to use mobility to enhance the learning experience."

Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up.

Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
