Dell KACE K3000 Enables BYOD with Mobile Device Management

Dell announced the new K3000 Mobile Management Appliance this week, extending the KACE portfolio for mobile devices and the new world of Bring Your Own Device.

Dell acquired KACE back in 2010. The core KACE product has remained the K1000 Management appliance, which is geared toward traditional IT desktop and laptop infrastructure. The K1000 is able to manage and deploy updates to endpoints in an effort to keep an enterprise secure.

The new K3000 supplements the K1000 with mobile capabilities. At the core of the K3000 hardware is the open source Linux operating system on which the KACE management system runs.

"Even though BYOD is the driving trend to implement Mobile Device Management solutions, the K3000 supports both corporate-owned and employee-owned devices," Saranya Babu, Senior Marketing Manager at Dell, KACE explained to Datamation.
