Airbus and SOTI have announced that they have partnered up to provide first responders with enterprise mobility management (EMM) software and thereby reduce downtime and simplify the overall mission-critical device management lifecycle.

“Managing smart devices and applications for business-critical organisations or public safety is not really a straightforward matter. All aspects of mobility have to be secure since these organisations need to operate their systems in the most reliable way,” said Eric Davalo, head of strategic development of Secure Land Communications at Airbus. “Our company contributes to these solutions with its strong knowledge of mission-critical technologies.”

Airbus will leverage SOTI’s flagship EMM product, SOTI MobiControl, as its secure and standardised technology will support Airbus’s product and help end users stay compliant with their organisation’s security policies. SOTI MobiControl makes remote and secure app management possible with the Tactilon Dabat and third-party SmarTWISP apps.

The SmarTWISP programme for app developers was created by Airbus in 2017. It has allowed dozens of app developers to cooperate with Airbus to offer an array of multimedia solutions for secure smart devices.

“Airbus is an ideal partner thanks to its long-term experience in mission-critical communications and its strong customer relationship with that community. Together, we serve the public safety and first responder communities who rely on us to spare every second needed to protect lives. During mission-critical operations, downtime is not an option,” explained Carl Rodrigues, president & CEO at SOTI.
