The new offering uses software and a user interface to enable employee laptops and netbooks to detect and connect to the best network service at a given time and place – for example, the network with the strongest signal or the one with the lowest charges. Businesses can configure employees’ portable computers to select the appropriate network, automatically or with the single click of a mouse. The networks include Wi-Fi, Ethernet, mobile broadband and virtual private network services.

In addition to helping mobile workers access their corporate networks, IT managers can more effectively manage and secure employee remote access by automatically installing software updates, IT policies and patches across an enterprise workforce. The service also provides up-to-date, detailed inventory reports on all hardware, software and devices, including wireless cards installed on corporate-owned equipment.

“Enterprise Mobility as a Service helps address an assortment of challenges multinational companies face deploying, managing and securing the tools of the trade for a mobile workforce,” said Bart Vansevenant, director of enterprise solutions for Verizon Business. “The combination of simplicity and reliability helps employees access their corporate network while alleviating the strain on IT department resources, leading to greater enterprise productivity.”

Verizon says the Enterprise Mobility solution will be available in June in 30 countries and territories in Europe, Asia-Pacific and the Americas and billing monthly on a per user basis.
