Toshiba has announced the availability of Toshiba Cloud Client Manager (TCCM) – a cloud service that allows companies of any size to manage their endpoint devices, providing complete estate asset management and comprehensive tools to ensure device efficiency and compliance.
Providing patch management, asset inventory, power management modules and Toshiba software drivers distribution, TCCM will add new functionality in early 2015 with the addition of mobile device management and intelligent Cloud back up functionality.
Using a standard web browser, administrators can now oversee and take control of IT devices online, in real-time, without the need to invest in servers, dedicated management software or require advanced technical expertise to deploy. TCCM is also scalable to grow as a business does and limits operating expense by being run as software as a service.
TCCM automates the administration and support systems that would otherwise need to be looked after manually. For the company, this means more agile endpoint management via a single, intuitive graphical interface that can be accessed online – helping organisations get the best from their devices, keeping them secure and up-to-date.
Due to the wide variety of devices in use across businesses, including smartphones and tablets, mobile device management is also becoming increasingly important. Toshiba’s Mobile Device Management (MDM) module enables organisations to create user profile permissions – allowing or denying access to data and apps as appropriate – and deploy security measures such as password strength, encryption, device lock and data wiping. Policies and permissions can be also applied, and business apps contained on a user’s own device, making Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies easier to implement.
