AVG RMM toolset now works with Apple

AVG Technologies N.V. (NYSE: AVG) has announced enhanced support for Apple´s (NASDAQ: APPL) Mac operating system (OS) environments within its AVG Managed Workplace 2013 remote monitoring and management (RMM) platform.

At the same time AVG Managed Workplace becomes the first leading RMM tool to offer agentless iOS management of Mac OS X devices including iPads and iPhones. The new capabilities will help Managed Services Providers (MSPs) offer a greater range of Mobile Device Management (MDM) options to customers wanting professional management of their Mac-only or mixed Windows/Apple environments and to reduce security issues related to personal mobile devices accessing their business IT infrastructure.

From now on, MSPs using AVG Managed Workplace can monitor and manage Mac OS X devices regardless of whether they are always in the office, only connect occasionally or are even permanently off-network. They can now also remotely lock and/or wipe a lost or stolen Mac OS X device for their customers to protect the confidentiality of company or customer data.

AVG´s mission is to simplify, optimize and secure the Internet experience, providing peace of mind to a connected world. AVG´s powerful yet easy-to‐use software and online services put users in control of their Internet experience. The company´s website is at www.avg.com
