Product Quick Facts
Since 1992, FileWave has provided business, education, and government customers with industry-leading systems and mobile device management (MDM) software to secure and manage devices, applications, and content from one easy-to-use console. FileWave is a highly scalable solution that offers its MDM services either on-cloud or on-premise and across multiple platforms, including OS X, iOS, Windows, and Android.
FileWave solves the many challenges of managing a diverse population of devices and users by ensuring its customers have all of the tools needed to successfully implement and support their users’ devices and needs throughout all phases of the product life-cycle. It offers device security, app deployment, and also allows administrators to manage profiles as well as execute device wipes and password resets. Administrators can additionally apply blocks to YouTube and other blacklisted applications, and inject network settings into devices remotely. Volume Purchase Plan (VPP) code spreadsheets can be imported directly into FileWave so the need to manually distribute codes to users is eliminated, allowing IT to purchase apps in bulk and distribute them easily and quickly. When new devices are added to the system and the configuration options are toggled, the system will automatically deliver needed the content upon enrollment. This makes FileWave an ideal solution for companies wishing to go bring-your-own-device (BYOD) with as smooth a transition as possible.
Cambridge University, located in the UK, uses FileWave to manage its devices. Having 1,800 devices over 35 sites required an easy-to-manage solution that would ensure a smooth deployment. FileWave was able to optimize the university’s communications system by allowing administrators to quickly manage files, and correct issues within minutes.
