BoxTone Extends Enterprise Mobility Management Platform to Support Apple's New iPhone 5C, iPhone 5S and iOS 7
Press Release, News
COLUMBIA, MD - BoxTone, the innovator of automated Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM), is extending its industry leading platform to support the new Apple® iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C smartphones, as well as the new iOS 7 mobile operating system that powers them.
The Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Mobile Service Management (MSM) capabilities of BoxTone's EMM solution for iOS 7 are available immediately. With employees upgrading iOS smartphones and operating systems in the coming weeks, organizations can take advantage of the wide range of new enterprise capabilities offered by iOS 7 and BoxTone while protecting their corporate data, maintaining the high levels of service that their business demands and reducing the tidal wave of support requests.
"The enterprise adoption rate of iOS devices continues to accelerate," said Brian Reed, Chief Product Officer at BoxTone. "iOS 7 extends key security and management capabilities as enterprise mobility matures. With iOS 7, BoxTone's unique combination of MSM and MDM enables our enterprise IT customers to reliably and cost-effectively support the ever-growing number of mobile users while protecting corporate data. This explains why more and more customers turn to BoxTone to power their wide-scale, mission-critical mobile deployments."
Key enterprise features of iOS 7 include rich controls to prevent data leakage and enable new mobile app interoperability. For example, if a user opens an enterprise email attachment or other corporate document in a consumer app, that document can move beyond the enterprise's control or even off of the device entirely.
With iOS 7, BoxTone enables enterprises to eliminate this potential exposure and empowers organizations to enforce policies to segregate corporate and personal data, such as restricting document and data viewing to only approved enterprise apps.
Beyond simply configuring iOS 7 devices, BoxTone also ensures organizations can roll out and effectively support mobile devices, apps and services. With BoxTone's Mobile Service Management (MSM) capabilities including real-time monitoring, proactive alerting, rapid incident resolution and environment tuning IT gets the visibility and control required to meet SLAs while mobile users get maximum productivity. For example, BoxTone's automated diagnostics enable Support teams to rapidly resolve mobile user issues and reduce support costs. BoxTone also automates lifecycle management across device activations, upgrades, changes and retirements with full auditing, reducing the load on IT and support while ensuring that corporate data always remains secure.
