Computer Associates (CA) has introduced a suite of products designed to provide IT management for wireless devices.

The new Unicenter WNM (Wireless Network Management) and Unicenter MDM (Mobile Device Management) offer wireless access to management applications tools. Yogesh Gupta, chief technology officer at CA said the new software would allow IT to manage mobile devices such as BlackBerry, Pocket PC, and Palm OS handheld computers.

"We're basically talking about covering all aspects of the [wireless] network, starting with discovery," said Gupta. He added that the wireless Unicenter product is designed to discover wireless access points and plugged-in LAN devices automatically. Gupta said the product also enables areas such as topology and configuration, availability, events, performance and integrated intrusion detection.

Gupta said the MDM software is designed to provide automated software distribution, configuration management, asset management, antivirus measures, secure communications via VPNs (virtual private networks) and device identification.

Both WNM and MDM will be integrated through CA's common services model and will be delivered through its CleverPath portal interface.

The Unicenter WNM and Unicenter MDM are expected to be available this summer. Pricing has not yet been set.
