Asus is going after business customers with its new M Series line of Android tablets.

The tablets are available with 7 or 10 inch displays and support WiFi and LTE connectivity. But the key selling point is the remote management software which Asus calls Adam (Asus Device Admin for Mobile).

Here’s how it works: IT managers can login to a website to deploy software to tablets, lock a device or wipe data, and more. Here are a few features mentioned in a promotional video for the new M Series tablets:

  • Enable kiosk mode to lock a tablet so employees cannot exit a specified application.
  • Update an app on all devices at once, but send out a 10-minute warning first so that nobody is caught unaware.
  • View screenshots, check status, or lock a device before the update to make sure the update goes smoothly.
  • If a device is stolen, you can lock it down and snap photos with the front and rear cameras and/or wipe data from the device.

There’s no word on how much the tablets or ADAM services will cost, but the tablets look a lot like a few existing consumer models: the Asus ZenPad 7 and ZenPad 10, which suggests they have entry-level hardware.
