Distributor supporting release with free training modules for resellers

Tech Data has extended its partnership with Google by adding its Android Enterprise Essentials mobile security service.

The distributor says that Android Enterprise Essentials makes deploying and managing devices easier and more cost-effective for organisations of all sizes.

It has set up an Android Enterprise Essentials Zero-Touch Enrolment area on InTouch, its online procurement and order management platform, so companies can more easily register and enable new Android devices.

“The explosion in use of mobile devices has led to mobile device management becoming a big challenge for organisations,” said Tech Data UK and Ireland enterprise software and cloud director Simon Bennett (pictured).

“Up to this point they have been faced with making a choice between highly-functional ‘full fat’ enterprise-focused solutions that are quite expensive to deploy, or basically, having no MDM.”

Bennett added: “While, according to IDC, over 50 percent of the mobile devices deployed for business use in Western Europe are Android-based, most businesses do not have an MDM solution in place. That’s the gap that Google’s Android Essentials is aiming to fill.”

To support the availability of the new software and encourage uptake among its customers, Tech Data will offer training modules covering Android Essentials.

These modules will be available for reseller partners free of charge on Tech Data’s Channel Academy training platform.
