Sybase and Verizon Team up to Manage Mobility Solutions For Enterprises Worldwide

New Verizon Managed Mobility Service

PowerBuilder Developer's Journal

Today Sybase & Verizon announced they are teaming up to enable Verizon's multinational companies to effectively manage the deployment and ongoing support of their growing mobile workforces. Business requires that organizations connect partners, suppliers, manufacturers, remote offices and remote employees directly to their systems, applications and information so they can improve customer service, bring products or services to market quicker, make better decisions and increase their organizations’ overall productivity.

As enterprises today strive to incorporate mobility to stay competitive, increase productivity and meet employee demand, they are seeing significant manageability issues across the entire organization,” said Nancy Gofus, Senior Vice President – global business products, Verizon. “Managing multiple fixed and mobile operator contracts and communication costs, selecting mobile devices, network interoperability and device management and security are unwieldy for most enterprises. Sybase is a proven leader in device management software and together we are well placed to minimize the pain points for customers through our new highly accessible, comprehensive managed mobility service.”

As we continue to extend our enterprise mobility leadership, we are extremely pleased to team up with a leading managed service provider in Verizon,” said Terry Stepien, President, Sybase iAnywhere. “Enterprise mobility has moved beyond line of business applications to include a much wider group of wireless consumers or information workers. Both Sybase and Verizon recognize this rapid change and are in the unique position to provide an easy-to-consume service that reduces the complexities of today’s ‘on-the-go’ enterprise.

Verizon Managed Mobility Solutions is highly flexible and user-friendly and offers an integrated solution in key areas including:  inventory and expense management, logistics, mobile device management and security, and application management. Sybase was selected to support the mobile device management and security modules of the new Verizon managed service:

  • Mobile Device Management for delivering tools, applications and data to employees in a timely manner, and creating and enforcing flexible mobile policies across devices, groups or individual users
  • Mobile Security that enforces access codes, establishes “lock/wipe” policies, encrypts devices and data cards, delivers firewall and antivirus applications, and supports mobile access to corporate applications
