By: Absolute Team | 11/23/2010

mdm-device-cluster.sflb.pngAbsolute Software has today launched Absolute Manage Mobile Device Management for iOS4 (Absolute Manage MDM) to support Apple iPad and iPhone with breakthrough security management.

According to Derek E. Brink, Vice President and Research Fellow for IT Security at Aberdeen Group, “Aberdeen's research confirms that the latest consumer devices are indeed gaining traction, in businesses of all sizes, a trend which is accelerating with the popularity of the Apple iPad. Organizations that are struggling to manage the diversity and volume of these devices over their lifecycle will welcome the introduction of solutions such as this from Absolute Software, which are purpose-built for what has quickly become the new normal.”

Absolute Manage customers can now efficiently manage and secure their iOS4 devices alongside the PC and Mac computers already managed at their organization. Up until now, there has been a lack of security solutions for Apple mobile devices, making corporations hesitant to allow employees to use these devices at work.

Absolute Manage MDM is available as a stand-alone product or as a component of Absolute Manage. Features of Absolute Manage MDM include:

  • Remotely manage assets, including gathering information on over 67 hardware and software information items
  • Track installed applications and deploy in-house applications
  • Set longer, more complex passwords for enterprise level security
  • Lock a device and/or wipe it clean if lost or stolen
  • Manage and deploy profiles to configure email, restrict applications, set up VPN, and more
  • Communicate with the end user without needing SMS
