Mailscape | Mobile Device Monitoring and Reporting
Your users are buying them every day. They continue to spread across your network and you are supposed to support them. Apple iPads, iPhones, BlackBerry, Android, and Windows mobile devices are here to stay. With each new device that is connected to your network, new security and support requirements arise. The need to know what types of devices are connected to your corporate network and who is using them is critical.
Mailscape can help you manage all the mobile devices you need to support.
We do not leave you guessing as to whether all your mobile components are functioning properly. Mailscape tests each component every few minutes and will notify the help desk of any issues.
One Look Dashboard
Mailscape makes your job of monitoring your mobile messaging environment easier by presenting real-time data on all the vital information that directly impacts Exchange uptime via Mailscape’s One Look Dashboard.
Stop monitoring every application and device deployed. Usually only addressing very basic metrics like server uptime won't prevent messaging outages.
Monitoring Made Easy
Instead of trying to monitor every known Exchange metric, Mailscape concentrates on key areas that directly impact uptime and won't give you false positives.
Mailscape contains over 40 built in reports that will make your job of supporting different mobile platforms easier. Mailscape can be used to report on all mobile devices.

You can literally spend a day getting the product deployed and displaying any issues in your environment. Approximately twenty four hours later you will have over 200 canned reports viewable to whomever you like, or you can just let them see a few select reports – whatever you want! Be a rock star and let the boss know that you can create an Exchange report on almost anything, which will seamlessly appear on their customized dashboard, yes, with graphs. I almost forgot to mention that they can email the reports to themselves from their dashboard. There are so many benefits to this product and I highly recommend that you check it out for yourself. ENOW will let you do a trial version and even offer assistance in setting the pilot up.
