Sybase expanded its support for Apple devices with a full mobile device management and security solution for iOS 4.
The release of Sybase Afaria delivers functionality to empower enterprise IT to manage the proliferation of personally and corporate-liable iPhones, while providing a degree of security to meet the corporate standards.
New features of the upcoming Afaria release support both on-premise and multi-tenant, managed mobility service models, delivering significant customer benefits including:
- Simplified delivery of in-house apps: Over-the-air delivery of in-house apps directly to the iPhone, as well as user-selectable “suggested” apps from the App Store through an Afaria client portal on the iPhone.
- Simplified device management: Powerful remote iPhone management provides IT with the ability to remotely install and remove device policies as well as lock and wipe the device – all without the need for user interaction.
- Improved transparency and control: Accurate and up to date asset tracking ensures complete knowledge of mobile device population – including device network information, connection data, security information, profile and provisioning data, certificates and restrictions, and installed 3rd party apps.
