ROCHESTER, NY, January 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI), (“Vuzix” or the “Company”), a leading provider of smart glasses and augmented reality (AR) technology and products, today announced that its smart glasses now support Microsoft Endpoint Manager support to manage devices that run on Android Open-Source Project (AOSP). The announcement of this solution follows customer feedback regarding the need to quickly and securely integrate and provision Vuzix smart glasses into applicable enterprise environments.
As the world has been challenged by the global pandemic, the need for remote collaboration has increased. Faced with this growing need, many companies have turned to specially designed, head-mounted wearables. As a result, organizations are responsible for delivering the smart glasses in an efficient and secure manner to protect corporate data. Microsoft Endpoint Manager has the ability to manage devices running on AOSP, a solution that quickly solved the problems of many Vuzix enterprise customers.
Pano Spiliotis, Managing Director of Vuzix Custom Solutions, said, “One of our biggest focal points as a group is to offer streamlined, purpose-built solutions to solve very specific problems and a significant challenge in organizations is the management of mobile devices when integrating glasses. By offering Microsoft Endpoint Manager for our smart glasses, we give IT a way to easily and quickly configure Vuzix devices, manage compliance, view all hardware properties, and more. Organizations have the option of provisioning the device as a user-associated device or a shared device; giving organizations the choice of how to manage hardware securely.”
“This type of solution gives businesses the security they need to feel safe by integrating potentially tens of thousands of eyewear and allowing them to do so in a simplified way,” said Paul Travers, President and CEO of Vuzix. “The Vuzix Custom Solutions business unit was created to help uncover issues within an organization and offer a robust solution and it’s a great example.”
