Sophos has announced the launch of the next version of its mobile device management solution to offer support for iOS5, Android, Windows Mobile devices and RIM BlackBerry.
The Mobile Control 2.0 platform had an enterprise application store that the company claimed had the look and feel of a typical app store, but allows IT administrators to configure, require or recommend apps to download.
The platform also included a a reporting dashboard for compliance enforcement that allowed specific rules to be set that execute consistent policies from devices including denying unencrypted devices or blacklisting specific applications.
Compliance issues were logged on a web-based dashboard that displays non-compliant devices, details of the violations and actions required to remediate the issue.
Non-compliant devices can be disabled from receiving further access to corporate data.
A self-service portal allowed users to access features such as lock mobile devices, wipe devices, locate devices and reset passwords, after registering an employee device.
