Dashboard v5.39 and Agent v9.2.2 – MDM Beta 2 and more…

Hi Everyone,

I am pleased to announce that Dashboard v5.39 and Agent v9.2.2 are being released overnight, so that they will be available in advance of the working day tomorrow, Tuesday 5th November. This update introduces a couple of key features:

– Mobile Device Management Beta 2: Support for iOS mobile devices, much-improved battery performance on Android, and more

– Remote Process Control GA release: This feature, which offers a view of live processes running on Windows machines, is now available on GA

This latest Beta release of Mobile Device Management marks a significant step forward for MDM on the GFI MAX RemoteManagement platform, with the two most popular operating systems now supported, across both Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and Company Owned Device (COD) policies.

Release candidate Agent 9.3.0 is expected later this week, which will update Managed Online Backup (MOB) to use the latest IASO 2013 version with support for Exchange 2013 and improved VMware handling.

Agent v9.2.2 replaces Agent v9.1.2 as the current production agent. Full release notes are below.
