Editor's Choice - SOTI MobiControl Review
4.5 Stars, Editor Rating: Excellent
SOTI MobiControl (which begins at $48 per device per year) has been around since 2004, starting as a Windows PC/CE management tool and then expanding to take on the broader role of mobile device management (MDM). With deep Windows roots, it's no surprise that SOTI MobiControl has tight integration with Active Directory (AD) and incorporates the concepts of multi-level privileges based on group membership. The latest version (v.13) includes a wide range of features such as remote device control, which works just as you would expect if you were remotely connecting to a PC.
