Wenable Launches Formal Device Certification Program for Its WeGuard Device Management Platform

By certifying devices in advance, WeGuard helps ensure the success of mobile deployments, reducing frustrations for both end users and administrators.


Houston, TX -- (ReleaseWire) -- 12/07/2021 --Wenable, Inc. a leading global provider of enterprise mobility management solutions for the deskless workforce, announced the formal launch today of its mobile device and remote endpoint certification process for its WeGuard device management platform. This certification process ensures that mobile & remote devices provided by organizations are compatible with WeGuard and other applications.

WeGuard has previously offered every device management customer the opportunity to test their proposed devices, including new devices they introduce. The new WeGuard certification process formalizes this step and allows customers to eliminate uncertainty upfront and ensure success PRIOR to deployment.

Offering a formal device certification process is critical because - even within the same operating system and version (example: Android v11) - different devices often behave differently. That frequently causes problems down the road with device management and internal software. This problem is widespread among MDM providers and has resulted in many failed implementations around the world.

To date, WeGuard has certified nearly 50 mobile devices from manufacturers and OEM/ODMs including Samsung, Apple, Sony, Huawei, Nokia and Google. (Note: not all devices from these manufacturers are WeGuard certified.) When a customer wants to deploy a device which is not already on the certified list, WeGuard will obtain samples and put them through extensive testing in its Hyderabad, India laboratory.

"Running a formal device certification program is not easy. It requires a commitment – which we have made – to obtaining devices for our lab, conducting rigorous testing, and dedicating multiple resources to the effort," said Sunil Sankaramanchi, CEO of Wenable. "We view certifying devices as another part of what we call our Day Zero support – meaning we don't wait or react to potential support issues, but rather we stay on top of the constantly changing world of mobile devices and operating systems so that our customers don't have to react later."

"I don't know how many times we've been approached by new customers who are frustrated with their current MDM deployments, which have either failed outright or are seriously delayed," said John Barba, Head of Sales at Wenable. "Inevitably, when we dig in, the problem is device incompatibility with their current MDM solution – including when upgrades have taken place to a new version of the operating system. The ONLY way to be sure a deployment will not have issues is to put devices through a rigorous certification process IN ADVANCE, such as the one we offer."
