Today's release of MobiControl 12.4 - our fourth release of 2015 and our second release in the last 2 months - represents a major step forward in the management and security of the Apple iOS platform and enhanced support for Cisco's Identity Services Engine (ISE). With MobiControl 12.4, SOTI is bringing important new security and user experience enhancements to customers with additional support for Apple's iOS 9 operating system and a hardened security solution with integrated Cisco ISE support.

Apple and Cisco recently announced a milestone joint partnership focused on stronger interoperability of Apple and Cisco technologies, with a focus on network optimization and optimized voice and video experiences across Apple iOS devices. We continue to work closely with Apple and Cisco to bring our customers the most secure management of iOS devices in the industry, and with iOS 9, organizations are looking to expand the use of these devices across their businesses, in use cases that continue to evolve at the speed of business. For a complete rundown of SOTI's iOS 9 support, check out our blog post and video.

Organizations who can now leverage SOTI MobiControl 12.4 to bolster endpoint security by:

  • Enhancing security and policy control for BYOD and corporate-liable deployments
  • Automating policy management and reducing IT overhead
  • Hardening identity management for mobile devices and securing connectivity to enterprise resources
  • Maintaining device compliance and automating actions when a device is found to be non-compliant
  • Extending mobile device policies into the network and network management policies to the mobile endpoint

With MobiControl 12.4, enterprise IT can confidently leverage their investments in Apple and Cisco solutions with a secure management solution that provides a streamlined enrollment experience, best-in-class security and new policy controls designed to boost employee productivity and quickly resolve employee device issues. Apple's increased corporate liable focus is an acknowledgement of iOS extending beyond BYOD into additional enterprise scenarios including vertical and LOB use such as retail and education, and MobiControl 12.4 is equipped to streamline deployments in these scenarios by supporting the latest enhancements to Apple's Device Enrollment Program and Volume Purchase Program.

It's an exciting time to be a part of the rapid change in the enterprise. We're using new tools, new platforms, and new workflows that wouldn't have been imaginable just 5 years ago. With MobiControl 12.4, we are helping customers realize the possibilities of deploying mobility deeper into their organizations, with the platform support and security required to empower employees with the latest mobile technologies. As organizations continue to expand the use of mobile technologies, we are laser focused on providing the industry's best solution for managing and securing mobility.
