Intermedia recently launched mobile HostPilot, a mobile app for securely provisioning and managing cloud services, including hosted Exchange, online backup and mobility. The company's award-winning HostPilot® Control Panel is now available as a mobile app on Android 2.1+ and iOS version 3.0+ devices -- including iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. It is also available as a web app on other platforms.
"Just like cloud services should be mobile, so should cloud control panels," says Manlio Carrelli, CMO, Intermedia. "Our customers can securely access Intermedia cloud services, such as email and voice, through any of the various devices they rely on -- from smartphones and tablets, to their home or work computer. Now, they can do the same with HostPilot via our mobile app."
HostPilot Control Panel provides business owners and IT managers with a single point of control over their Intermedia cloud services. Its intuitive features enable technical administration to be delegated to non-technical staff.
Using mobile HostPilot, account administrators can securely perform many common and useful transactions on the go from their mobile device, including:
- Creating new Exchange mailboxes
- Resetting passwords
- "Wiping" a user's mobile device -- protecting the company in the event the device is lost or stolen
- Adding or removing users from a distribution list
- Enabling secure instant messaging, Online Backup and BlackBerry services
- Accepting or rejecting end users' requests to access additional services
- Backing up a mailbox
- Checking service status notifications
The HostPilot mobile app is free to use and easy to set up. It is available for current Intermedia customers using hosted Exchange 2007 and Exchange 2010. Customers can go to the Android Market or Apple App Store, search "Intermedia HostPilot," download the app, and login with their HostPilot username and password.
Intermedia offers a suite of hosted communications and collaboration software, including hosted Exchange 2010, hosted PBX, Online Backup, Email Encryption, secure instant messaging, document management, and an entire ecosystem of related offerings including support for BlackBerry, iPhone, Android phones, fax lines and more.
