Vodafone Smartphone Professional designed to enable businesses to manage smartphones on their corporate networks to ensure data is secure

Vodafone has launched its Smartphone Professional service, designed to make it simpler for UK businesses to manage corporate data on smartphones without interfering with the employees personal information on the device.

Through an online portal, IT administrators can control applications, restrict a device’s functionality and remotely wipe confidential information from a lost or stolen device. The service includes over-the-air and on-device encryption of business data such as email, calendar and contacts. Businesses also get a data allowance of 500MB and upwards for each user on the Vodafone network.

The service also includes helpdesk to helpdesk support as standard, which gives access to Vodafone’s team of specialists to ensure service availability and minimize downtime. Vodafone is also offering a range of remote management options or a fully hosted solution.

Vodafone Smartphone Professional is available from £20 per user per month with a £50 activation fee.

Vodafone UK enterprise director Peter Kelly said: “With smartphones becoming increasingly popular, securing the way data is accessed and stored on these devices is crucial. Many businesses want to allow employees to use the mobile device that they choose to do their job most effectively. With Vodafone Smartphone Professional, businesses have the peace of mind that mobile devices and data are secure.”
