09 Oct What IT Departments Ought To Know About iOS 6
While the iPhone 5 is unlikely to have a significant impact upon enterprise mobile management strategies (apart from perhaps a difficulty at keeping up with the demand), IT departments concerned with the security of their mobile fleet should be paying attention to the new features in its OS.
iOS 6 offers a range of impressive new features that will be attractive to business users and consumers, but will also pose some issues for enterprise security. Before you go ahead and boycott iOS 6 from being used in your business environment, there are ways to circumvent these new security concerns through security measures Apple have included specifically for its Enterprise customers.
