With Sophos Mobile Control as a Service, companies can complete various tasks including creating policies to uploading lists of users and developing Acceptable Use Policies for employee-owned devices through the web-based admin console.

The structure of the Sophos Mobile Control web console, self-service portal and the mobile client will provide customer with the benefits of having no hardware on the customer site.

"With limited resources and a multitude of security solutions to manage, mobile devices in particular are often left uncontrolled," Pankert said.
