Security giant Symantec is a long-standing staple in the risk management space. But in April, the Mountain View, Calif.-based company extended its security offerings in the mobile market with the launch of its new Athena platform.
Integrated with Symantec’s Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), Athena is an end-to-end mobile device management solution for iOS, Android and Windows Mobile devices. Admins can leverage the platform to deploy enterprise-wide email, safeguard apps, and even roll out a mobile help desk.
Athena was originally developed by mobile management software vendor Odyssey Software, which Symantec acquired in March.
