ROUND ROCK, Texas --(Business Wire)--
Today Dell (News - Alert) Software announced a limited release of Dell

varied support levels, IT organizations can shield business information

efficient mobile-support system if all platforms are not managed the
same way under enterprise requirements."

portfolio that includes Dell Wyse's Cloud Client Manager and Dell MDM to
provide oranizations with the ability to manage the complete breadth of
