This article is applicable only to those customers who are currently using the Kaseya Mobile Device Management (KMDM) and BYOD solutions in R9 or older versions of cloud-based VSA.
Kaseya has launched its next-gen mobile management solution in January 2015 called “Kaseya Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM)” as part of R9 release. However, in its first implementation, Kaseya EMM will require an instance of VSA running on-premise. So, Kaseya cloud customers who are interested in deploying EMM should connect with their Kaseya sales representative to discuss the implementation. The on-premise component will be available in the Kaseya Cloud in a future product release, including full migration of on-premise implementations. Until then, cloud customers, such as yourself, can also continue to use the existing KMDM module in VSA if you do not wish to pursue the on-premise implementation of EMM.
If you are currently deploying VSA agents to manage mobile devices using KMDM, then we recommend that you install the on-premise component and transition to the EMM solution. The EMM licenses can be purchased at the attractive user-based pricing to manage mobile devices. All KMDM agents will be released back to your VSA agent pool in the cloud environment to manage client, server, and network devices. You can then re-register mobile users and devices in the EMM solution.
If you are using the BYOD solution, then you may continue to use it until the end of your subscription. After that, you will have to transition to the EMM solution and re-register your mobile users and devices.
Kaseya EMM’s integration with VSA and combination of MDM, BYOD, and MAM capabilities will provide you with powerful mobility management capabilities. Please contact your Kaseya sales representative to plan your transition to Kaseya EMM.
