HP has released an offering that it said helps wireless and broadband companies generate new revenue by providing midsize business customers with cloud-based mobile device management services.

 

With HP Cloud Services Enablement for Device Management as a Service (HP CSE for DMaaS), communications service providers (CSPs) can help businesses solve a costly and burdensome problem: managing employee smartphones, notebooks and other mobile devices, the firm said.

 

As work moves outside the office, businesses must support a wide array of mobile devices, networks, operating systems and applications.

 

“Through a secure, customizable Web portal, IT staff can manage mobile devices and PCs through the cloud,” the company said in a release.

 

“Using over-the-air technology they can configure devices, distribute applications, diagnose problems, enforce security policies and protect data with full back-up and restore capability.”
