Tablets are growing in popularity in the enterprise, but managing them effectively can be a challenge for IT. Splashtop says its latest release eases the headache for IT with a cloud-based system that it’s easy to deploy.
Building on the company’s namesake service, the new Splashtop Pro is designed for corporate IT, service providers and system integrators.

The new Splashtop Pro gives IT the ability to securely manage and monitor devices through an easy-to-use, cloud-based web console. Features designed for IT include being able to deploy and set policies for mobile workforces that let them leverage personal, private, and/or public clouds, whether they are running on a physical or virtual machine.
“Splashtop Pro is the fastest way to enable mobile workforce. In 30 minutes, a company’s workforce is up and running with mobile tablets with full access to their apps and files on their computers,” said Mark Lee, CEO and co-founder of Splashtop, in a release. “We are excited to bring the ease of consumer apps to the corporate IT world, while supporting IT to centrally control and manage secure connectivity among devices.”
