Empowering Enterprises to Manage and Secure iOS 6 Mobile Devices

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Sept. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - SOTI Inc., the world's most trusted provider of enterprise Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) solutions, has announced its support for Apple's cutting-edge iPhone 5, as well as the iOS 6 mobile operating system.

Backed by over a decade of experience and with over 10,000 enterprise deployments globally, SOTI empowers organizations to manage and secure millions of employee and corporate-owned devices across all platforms. The latest enhancements to SOTI's enterprise-grade Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution, MobiControl, include the management of iOS 6 features such as Passbook, Game Centre, Photo Stream and more.

"SOTI fully embraces the mobile device market's latest technologies and innovations. We are pleased to offer our enterprise customers immediate, seamless support for iOS 6. As an industry pioneer, we continue to leverage the company's expertise in enterprise mobility to deliver a superior MDM and BYOD solution to manage iOS devices without compromise," said Carl Rodrigues, President and CEO of SOTI Inc.

As BYOD initiatives become increasingly popular in the enterprise, employees are bringing their personally-owned mobile devices to work for business use and connecting them to corporate networks. The launch of the iPhone 5 and iOS 6 will undoubtedly result in a surge of requests to support Apple devices enterprise-wide. MobiControl enables organizations to easily manage iPhone 5 and iOS 6 devices, application deployments and device usage based on pre-defined enterprise policies. As mobile users migrate to Apple devices running on iOS 6, enterprise IT administrators can ensure a smooth transition by using MobiControl to simplify device provisioning, updates and lifecycle management.

SOTI's addition of management functionality for iOS 6 is further enhanced when combined with MobiControl's support for Apple Configurator, which opens the door to deployments of iOS devices in single-use or shared device environments. "With the ability to lock an iOS device to one particular App, SOTI enables the effective use of iOS devices in deployments of a whole different nature such as kiosks in retail," said Rodrigues. "And with the ability to refresh and restore an iOS device at the end of the day, teachers can now ensure that a device is ready for use by the next student."

Award-winning SOTI MobiControl enables organizations to address major challenges as their mobile device deployments grow in size and complexity. MobiControl has a wide range of advanced features including Real-Time Remote Control, Silent Application Installation, Device Lockdown/Kiosk Mode, Secure Content Library, Enterprise App Catalog, Location Based Services and more.
