Trust Digital has brought the iPhone one step closer to potential adoption by government agencies and departments by expanding its Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) platform to include support for the Apple device.
The EMM platform – which already supported an array of non-BlackBerry smartphones, including devices from Motorola, Samsung and Palm – provides centralized management tools and end-to-end security. Using EMM’s Web interface, administrators can deploy and decommission smartphones, audit device and software use, and enforce security policies. The EMM console integrates with Microsoft Active Directory for group-based management and also includes an integrated help desk feature that helps IT staff resolve users’ issues.
Password protection and a remote wiping feature offer protection to secure data in the event of lost devices.
