It said that the free version of the software comes with features such as open source server and agent, self-served setup, remote control conformation, manual configuration of devices, and free LetsEncrypt certificate.

Vsevolod Mayorov, the CEO of Headwind MDM said, “Open source solutions such as Apache or MySQL have been dominating the traditional web services market for a while. However, the services for mobile devices are mostly proprietary. I feel there is a great potential for open source solutions in the mobile market, particularly in corporate mobile device management. We have experienced an increasing popularity of our open source MDM software ‘Headwind MDM’ and have already received numerous inquiries about a remote control for mobile phones. This is what led us to create aPuppet and I am sure it will be a huge success.”
