With a layered approach to security, scalable deployment options, and a powerful platform for apps, you've got everything you need to deploy iPad in virtually every business environment.
Device policies, restrictions, and strong encryption methods in iOS provide a layered approach to keeping your information secure. Low-level hardware and firmware features protect against malware and viruses, while high-level iOS features allow secure access to corporate data, prevent unauthorized use, and help thwart attacks.
Businesses have a variety of options for deploying iOS devices across their enterprises. Employees can install Configuration Profiles or enroll in Mobile Device Management (MDM) on their own devices to quickly get corporate services up and running. For managed deployments, IT can configure or query devices and wirelessly install apps using MDM. And shared devices can be managed using Apple Configurator so they’re ready to go when users start their shifts.
With so many apps available to businesses in the App Store there is a solution for every task. And apps on the App Store are just the beginning. There are several different types of apps — those commercially available from the App Store, those developed in-house by an organization, and those created by a developer for a specific customer. No other mobile platform has this variety of app options, making iOS a complete ecosystem for apps.
