Cloud UC provider PanTerra Networks has unveiled new administration tools designed to improve WorldSmart scale for midmarket enterprises.
PanTerra says the new features significantly enhance security and reduce the need to implement and manage multiple security applications. The tools add the ability to define administrative roles and privileges and to configure centralized management, distributed management or a hybrid of both, allowing enterprises to tailor their solution to their existing IT infrastructure. This ability to create a hierarchy of administrators is a powerful feature for larger enterprises, the company said, allowing some local administration of users as well as centralized control of higher-level administrative functions.
The features simplify administration functions such as global group management and customizable billing.
"PanTerra's Admin 5.0 cut our administrative overhead considerably on our most recent multi-location customer migration off of legacy equipment," said Bill Sutherland, president and CEO of Sutherland Networks. “The marriage of secure unified administrative access for all WorldSmart services, and more specifically the improved group and mobile administration and intuitive import function, reduced many man-hours off the system cutover."
