Sometime later next week, Windows 10 Mobile will be getting a new app in the Windows Store, Wandera. Already available on Android and iOS, Wandera is a Mobile Security and Data Management app for enterprise customers. Based in the UK, US, Czech Republic, and Israel, Wandera offers enterprise customers a Mobile Security and Data Management solution, by providing a unique gateway architecture for secure corporate mobility. Here is a video overview of what Wandera does for the enterprise world.
Here is a list of what Windows 10 Mobile users will gain by using Wandera:
- Unified management of devices, meaning all organizations running any blend of Apple, Samsung and now Windows 10 Mobile devices can seamlessly take advantage of Wandera’s benefits.
- Productivity gains and a direct return on investment with Wandera’s unparalleled control and visibility over mobile data usage.
- Preventative mobile security with Wandera’s Content Filtering solution, proactively limiting access to known mobile risks and preventing problems before they arise.
So why would Wandera release an app on Windows 10 Mobile when the platform is presumably dead? Wandera’s reasoning is simple:
“Microsoft has long been a global innovator in the enterprise sector. At the beginning of this year, it announced that over 200 million devices were currently running Windows 10 globally. And with 90% of enterprises running a version of Windows on their desktops and laptops, it’s no surprise that many choose to run Windows 10 on their mobile devices as well.
Windows 10 Mobile is currently available on the following Lumia smartphones: Lumia 1520, Lumia 930, Lumia 830, Lumia 730, Lumia 735, Lumia 640 XL, Lumia 640, Lumia 635, Lumia 535, Lumia 532, Lumia 540 and Lumia 435. These devices have proven exceptionally popular among enterprise customers, thanks to tight integration with key Microsoft applications such as Office 365.”
Mysteriously absent from Wandera’s blog post is the mention of the Lumia 950, Lumia 950 XL, and HP Elite x3, that also run WIndows 10 Mobile. Perhaps, Wandera only mentioned the most popular Lumia devices that are used by enterprise customers. You can download Wandera on Android and iOS now and stay tuned to OnMSFT and we will let you know when Wandera is available on Windows 10 Mobile sometime later next week.
