42Gears Unveils Virtual Reality (VR) Headset Device Management

Bengaluru, India, January 8, 2019 - 42Gears Mobility Systems, a leading UEM solution provider positioned as a Visionary in the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant, announces the release of the Virtual Reality Device Management Solution- SureMDM for VR. The solution enables management of standalone Virtual Reality headsets.

With virtual reality set to become a game changer for user/employee training across industries, management of VR headset is the need of the hour.

42Gears has designed and developed SureMDM for VR to help organizations lockdown VR devices into kiosk mode, turning them into dedicated purpose devices. IT Pros can restrict the device to a single app or multiple app modes, ensuring only allowed applications run on the VR device. SureMDM for VR also provides remote screen option, allowing IT admins to keep a track of what content is being watched on the headset and diagnose problems easily, whenever required.

Prakash Gupta, Co-founder and CTO of 42Gears explains, “We are seeing a sharp incline in the adoption of VR headsets in industries such as healthcare, retail and even manufacturing for the specific purpose of immersive employee training. Rather than just reading text material or viewing videos, with VR based immersive training employees can experience situations, work on tools or practice problem-solving in a way they would do in the “real-world”. SureMDM for VR is the first of its kind solution to control and manage virtual reality headsets thereby delivering better ROI to organizations for their investments in the VR technology. ”
