Otarris Provides Secure, Affordable, Easy-to-Manage LTE Connectivity for IoT Solutions on Any Combination of Six Major North American Wireless Networks
MCLEAN, Virginia—Sept. 5, 2018— Kajeet, Inc®, a wireless industry leader for managed mobile solutions, today announced the launch of its new division, Otarris, to address the increasing need to control a broad array of IoT (Internet of Things) and other mobile devices for small to large enterprises. Otarris provides today’s companies and government organizations with an affordable, multi-carrier, wireless connectivity solution through its patented cloud-based management platform, Sentinel®.
Operating since 2003, Kajeet is the industry leader for safely powering the K-12 mobile environment with its Education Broadband™ solutions in nearly 700 school districts and libraries across the country on six North American wireless networks. The Kajeet success in managing and securing data in education, on any connected device on any network, caught the attention of other industries. During the past year, Kajeet rolled out its solution to over 20 new enterprise customers and government agencies that support healthcare, first responders, public transportation, and agriculture.
“As wireless devices of varying types rapidly expand into every industry, enterprise technology teams are discovering they need an affordable, secure, reliable solution for connecting and managing their mobile devices. Being able to simply control, secure, and manage them, whether it is LTE coverage, CAT M, or Private LTE, is critical,” said Otarris Senior Vice President Bob Ewald, who is leading the new division. “When you partner with the Otarris team—whether it is for one device or one million—you have access to our extensive wireless engineering experience, our relationships with multiple wireless carriers, and our Sentinel Platform which enables you to easily manage all your wireless devices.”
Sentinel, the core of the Otarris wireless connectivity solution, provides real-time usage reporting and an analytics dashboard, highlighting which, and how much data is consumed by devices. Customers have access to a broad set of pre-configured usage policies to manage what content can be accessed and how much data can be consumed by each device. Sentinel has a powerful collection of advanced malware defense tools that correlate threat indicators from our platforms to stop known, unknown and evasive malware threats.
“As a connectivity solution provider for almost 15 years, we have seen the mobile market evolve, and Kajeet continues to adapt in order to understand and serve our customers—their needs, challenges, and pain points—when it comes to simplifying complex wireless data management and control,” said Kajeet CEO and Founder Daniel Neal. “The Otarris division of Kajeet allows us to focus on the enterprise client’s evolving needs for wireless connectivity solutions. We will enable our customers to create flexible, cost-effective wireless solutions unconstrained by any single wireless carrier. Today we already have an impressive portfolio of clients, across numerous industry verticals, who are securely managing their connected devices on the Otarris Sentinel platform.”
When we started Kajeet in 2003, we wanted kids to be agile with technology, to be empowered and safe, and we wanted to help them respond with confidence to what's happening in their world. Not incidentally, we want parents, educators and guardians to be involved too. Being part of the mobile world is not just fun, it’s a shared responsibility.
