Multi-OS Management Overview

iOS Management

iPhone® and iPad® Management for the Enterprise

Users love the iPhone and iPad experience and want that same experience at work. IT departments must now provision, secure, and manage corporate and employee-owned iOS devices as they do other platforms.

MobileIron enables companies to deploy iPhones and iPads at scale by bridging the gap between the security IT needs and the experience end-users demand.  TheEnterprise App Storefront from MobileIron also facilitates the internal development and distribution of iOS applications.  Businesses who distribute any iOS app internally can enroll in the iOS Developer Enterprise program.  To help businesses get started, Apple has published this MDM primer on its web site. To find, buy, and distribute the apps your business needs, MobileIron recommends participation in the App Store Volume Purchase Program.  The program also makes it easy to purchase custom B2B apps built by third-party developers to meet the unique needs of your business. 

The MobileIron platform is available as either a cloud service or an easy-to-install server that plugs into your corporate network and is up and running in less than a day, plus a MobileIron iOS application that is available for download on the App Store.  Click here to listen to a PodCast on managing iOS devices.
