We have just released a new version of 2X MDM that includes support for Windows laptops running Windows 7 and 8 which allows IT administrators to seamlessly manage their Windows, Android and iOS devices under one hood. IT administrators can now expand their use of mobile device management by using the Beta 2X MDM Windows OS agent to remotely lock and unlock, change the user’s login password, configure Wi-Fi networks, view installed programs and remotely wipe the user library on Windows laptops.

We have also added more features and improvements to this new 2X MDM version including the ability to unlock your mobile devices, which is very useful if you cannot remember or have lost your password. Administrators can now remotely lock an Android device without needing to change the users password and you can see if blacklisted or whitelisted applications are installed on devices.

The Android and iOS agents have been updated so you can immediately use the new features available with this release. We have updated the 2X MDM user manual to include these changes and help you make the most of 2X MDM.
