Good Technology has released its iPhone Management offering to provide “whole device” and compliance management for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices.
Good’s iPhone Management offering is part of the Good for Enterprise iPhone solution and includes a built-in Compliance Manager function. This new offering enables IT administrators to define and distribute configuration profiles and enforce compliance policies for the Apple devices, according to John Herrema, chief marketing officer for Good.
With its enhanced management and compliance features, Good for Enterprise allows IT administrators to control exactly which iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models, OS versions, and Good client versions are allowed to access their network while preventing non-compliant devices from accessing enterprise networks, applications, and data, he adds.
In addition to the iPhone management and compliance manager functions, Good also recently enhanced Good Mobile Control with a new “self service” option. With the Good Mobile Control Self Service option, IT administrators can empower end users and reduce IT help desk costs by allowing end users to perform routine mobile device management actions on their own, such as activating a new mobile device, or initiating data wipe, without having to generate an IT support call.
Good for Enterprise-iPhone is available for free from the Apple App Store. Use of Good for Enterprise-iPhone requires a Good for Enterprise server and client access license (CAL). Customers should contact their IT administrator for a username and password. The Good for Enterprise application will not operate without the necessary back-end software.
