Companies
are adopting employee-owned mobile devices and the most popular
mobile platform for BYOD is iOS. Large numbers of mobile devices
connected to corporate networks brought IT administrators’
challenges to overcome in their assignment to secure data. Employees
expect the right to use mobile apps that help them manage their
tasks, connect with colleagues, keep in touch with family, etc.
Therefore, IT administrators are faced with a growing number of apps
invading their network every day, in which case they find help in a
mobile application management tool. Having an overview of the mobile
devices fleet and the mobile applications and the ability to manage
them, decreases the security risks companies and individuals are
exposed to.

"Within a short period of time our MDM
solution has become highly competitive and our focus on customers’
needs made this happen. The new feature added to our MDM offering -
Mobile Application Management for iOS - addresses the risks
associated with installing and using mobile apps within the
companies
' network,
without interfering with employees’ productivity,
"
said CoSoSys CEO, Roman Foeckl. 

The management feature
integrated into Endpoint for iOS devices supports paid and free apps
listed on iTunes App Store. It enables the software to push, view,
remotely delete and control apps on iOS devices. Support for
enterprise apps will be released in the near future.
