LogMeIn Previews Controls for Securing Access From iPads and iPhones in the Workplace

So you’ve been hearing about  LogMeIn’s new service to secure and manage access from employee iPads, eh? Wondering what it is? Well, we can’t wait to tell you all about it! Right now, we’re taking the covers off our new service that blends Total Access with Total Control.

With LogMeIn Ignition you’ve long been able to access your actual desktop, and the applications, files and data that are important to you. This is Total Access.

Now we’re making sure that full access has a true place in our work organizations. We’ve added a set of management tools to LogMeIn Central designed to control that access – which computers and data can be accessed, by whom, and from what device. This is Total Control.

With this new service, you can:

  • Enroll individually owned and IT-procured iOS devices into an organization’s mobile inventory
  • Authorize individual iOS devices for remote access to one or more company computers, including access to corporate apps and files
  • Manage remote access rights and permissions by individual, computer, and/or mobile device
  • Control whether files can be remotely transferred from remote computers to individual mobile devices
  • Handle lost or stolen devices by remotely wiping stored credentials

We’re really excited about the services, and we’re showing a preview today. General availability will certainly follow later. If you’re interested in hearing and seeing more, why not head over to https://secure.logmein.com/accesscontrol and register!

         

New Ignition update: Leave a photo or video at home? Ignition has you covered.

You’ve been waiting, we’ve told you it’s coming and now it’s here, the latest update for LogMeIn Ignition. Be sure you download the newest update, now available on the app store. This update includes three new features to increase your productivity as you sail into the summer months.

With the new LogMeIn Ignition you can:
• Copy photos between your iPad/iPhone photo library and Ignition, so they’re always accessible in one place.

• Attach files of any kind (including multimedia) to emails directly from Ignition.

• Set Ignition to close while multitasking after 1, 2, 5 or 10 minutes.

We hope these new features offer you a simple way to get a little freedom from the office while you’re on the go this Summer.

Be sure to check out the videos below to see all the new features in action.  And as always, we’d love to hear your thoughts.

         

Coming soon: Ignition iOS update

I’m Tara, the new Sr. Product Marketing Manager for Ignition. You’ll be hearing more from me in the coming months, but I get the pleasure of telling you about our upcoming iOS update as my first blog post.

We just submitted the app to Apple for approval so we’re just days away from getting you the latest enhancements and improvements. We’re excited about the three new features coming to users of Ignition for iOS.  For now, I’m giving you a sneak peak of our photos and videos feature which allows you to copy photos between your iPad/iPhone photo library and Ignition, so they’re always accessible in one place.

Fresh off the development build, here are some screen shots.

I have gigabytes of photos on my desktop computer and I obviously can’t carry all of them with me. Now I can easily grab my favorite photo of my home town (Anchorage, AK), copy them to Ignition using File Manager and they’re automatically available in the Photo app on my new iPad2. Slick!

Stay tuned for more details on our update, it’s coming soon.

         

Instant Integrated Remote Support for an Android Tablet

In February of this year, LogMeIn announced Rescue support for Android tablets and smartphones, which can be achieved in two ways, pre-deployed for mobile operators and over-the-air for corporations. Today, we are excited to showcase an example of a mobile operator who has pre-deployed Rescue on an Android device, enabling full remote support with remote control. This also happens to be the first remote support solution that has been pre-installed on an Android Honeycomb tablet, the T-Mobile LG G-Slate.

LogMeIn has been working with T-Mobile to deliver an integrated, out-of-the-box support solution that simplifies the way customers receive support. From T-Mobile’s pre-installed “My Account” application, a customer and support representative can easily connect via LogMeIn Rescue and share control of the customer’s Android device to resolve a problem.

This solution is being used by T-Mobile representatives to provide support to T-Mobile customers on the new LG G-Slate tablet and other new Android devices, including the LG G2-X and Side-Kick 4G for T-Mobile.

Check out the video below to see the T-Mobile App with Rescue in action.

Big News on Android Support from Mobile World Congress

Two weeks ago we introduced the New Rescue , including some great new features for Android support.  Today at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, we’re bringing out the big guns:  full remote control of Android devices! Initially available for mobile operators and OEMs, these remote control capabilities extend our Rescue Mobile benefits while ensuring the highest level of security. We’re doing this through a partnership strategy that has Rescue being pre-deployed by some of the biggest device manufacturers on some of today’s best-selling Android devices.  The pre-deployed Rescue applet enables mobile carriers and OEMs to deliver complete support (including full remote control) to their customers’ devices.  That means technicians can support Android smartphones and tablets remotely, as if they were in the palm of their hand.

We’ll be showing it off all week at MWC, so if you’re here swing by the LogMeIn booth (hall 1, stand 1G31) or the Android stand (hall 8, stand 8C25) to check it out.  For everyone else, here’s a sneak peak of an Android tablet being “Rescued” by our Mobile product manager John Purcell:
