Excitor expects to release the DME client for Android-based phones in December 2009. Excitor will thus be the first vendor to deliver mobile device management for this latest emerging mobile platform in the enterprise market space. With the DME client on employee's Android phones such as HTC Magic, HTC Hero and Samsung Galaxy, companies will be able to centrally manage Android phones, impose corporate security measures, and manage data and voice costs.

DME will enable IT departments to provision software to Android phones and keep full inventory of all phones, helpful when supporting users. Unwanted or unsupported applications can be blocked, and data be wiped remotely or automatically. DME's file synchronization mechanism also allows back-up of company files should a phone be lost or break. For companies concerned about their phone bills for voice and data consumption, DME's capabilities around cost control are extended to the Android platform. Therefore, the DME client will allow tracking of all data and voice traffic, helping companies predict and reduce their data connection charges and voice costs.

"The popularity of Android phones is rapidly increasing, and we have noticed a growing interest among our business customers. Since Android is expected to quickly take significant market share due to its sleek interface and reasonable pricing, we are investing in porting DME to the Android platform as the first in the enterprise market," says Mads Skalbo, COO at Excitor (http://www.excitor.com/Default.aspx?ID=65&PID=639&NewsID=212).
