REVIEWED BY SANDRA KAY MILLER

Price: Starts at $85 per user

The latest version of Credant Mobile Guardian (CMG) offers a unified Web-based management portal that lets administrators discover, secure and monitor endpoints, regardless how they touch the enterprise network.


Installation/ConfigurationB  

Be prepared to dedicate some time to install and deploy its components in large, distributed environments to ensure for efficient scalability. Even our basic installation consumed a significant amount of configuration time.

The Gatekeeper component listens for synchronization between mobile devices and workstations, performs automatic discovery of mobile devices, distributes up-dates, policies and encryption keys, and performs monitoring, reporting and application control. Agents enforce policies, regardless of connection status.

The Enterprise Server is managed through a browser-based interface that works equally well on Internet Explor- er and Firefox. Integrating with Active Directory provided a speedy designation for individual users and groups.

Installing client software on workstations was straightforward, but the agent deployment on our Windows Mobile device required several attempts.
