MaaS360 delivers a single, cloud-based console for total enterprise device management of all Microsoft Windows 8 smartphones, tablets, and laptops

PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Fiberlink®, the leader in cloud-based solutions for secure mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM), today announced the first comprehensive support for all versions of the new Windows® 8 operating system, including Windows 8, Windows RT and Windows Phone 8. MaaS360 by Fiberlink makes it simple for organizations to embrace this new operating system on any device.

Windows 8 is currently available on a wide range of new mobile devices; laptops, tablets and smartphones. It's the first attempt by Microsoft to standardize the operating system across multiple platforms and it offers many new benefits.

With MaaS360, IT organizations can evolve their mobile strategies to secure and manage all their Windows 8 devices, apps and content, along with their iOS and Android deployments, from a single console.

Unlike other mobile device management products on the market, MaaS360 already offers customers the widest support of Microsoft operating systems across Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows Mobile and Windows Phone 7.  Delivered as a true cloud-based service, all MaaS360 customers experience instant visibility and control, without having to go through a complicated server upgrade process to support new devices and OS's.

"We have a long history of delivering the most trusted and comprehensive cloud-based security policy management solutions for Windows," said Chuck Brown, senior product manager at Fiberlink. "These latest extensions to MaaS360 for Windows 8 reinforce our product strategy to simplify enterprise mobility in this increasingly complex, multi-platform environment."

According to a recent poll of over 700 enterprise IT professionals conducted by Fiberlink, over 40% have current plans to support Windows 8 on smartphones, tablets and laptops.
