Tangoe Announces Immediate Support for iOS 7 and Expands Mobile Device
ORANGE, Conn. -- September 17, 2013
Tangoe, Inc. (NASDAQ: TNGO), a leading global provider of Communications
Lifecycle Management (CLM) software and related services, today announced the
release of Mobile Device Management (MDM) software version 13.2. The latest
enhancements include support of Apple’s iOS 7 and application virtualization
As a result of the changing mobile landscape, enterprises are facing more and
more risk and are often limited by not having the proper support staff or
technical capabilities required to keep pace with changes that major upgrades
like iOS 7 can have on enterprises. As part of its Managed Mobility Solution
(MMS) offering, Tangoe delivers managed services for its entire solution suite
that optimizes and manages the lifecycle of mobile enterprise communications
resources including: solution hosting, administrative services, end-user help
desk, and on-site MDM administrative support.
“The influx of new and less expensive mobile devices entering the market
combined with the complexities of managing a fully connected enterprise in a
BYOD world has created even more risk,” said Wayne DeCesaris, senior vice
president of Managed Solutions, Tangoe. “With this risk comes the need for a
solution that can effectively block, isolate and provide secure application
access while being device agnostic. As part of our MMS offering, device
management and user support can now be fully outsourced so that our customers
can easily manage these upgrades while focusing on their core businesses.”
Tangoe believes that Apple’s recent launch of iOS 7 signals Apple’s continued
pursuit of the enterprise market, as iOS 7 provides enhanced security, and
powerful new ways to configure and deploy devices on a global scale. Tangoe’s
updated solution suite is designed to support many of the enhancements
provided by iOS 7, including:
*Enterprise Single Sign On (SSO) – Seamless access to multiple applications
and websites using Kerberos authentication. Tangoe MDM and Tangoe WEM
solutions all use SSO.
*Multi-tasking – Recognizes applications that the user most frequently uses
throughout the day, provides background checks to keep the application
going, automatically adapts to network coverage when used, and allows the
user to run multiple apps at once – allowing the user to move in and out
of applications without returning to home between each task. In a BYOD
environment, Tangoe containerization prevents user errors when moving from
corporate to personal applications.
*AirDrop – Provides iPad and iPhone users with the ability to share
documents directly with each other over wireless networks rather than
using cloud storage or sending email attachments. The risk with this
feature is the unintentional sharing of corporate data from the device to
other phones, tablets, printers and PCs. If working in a BYOD environment,
Tangoe MDM can scan for eligible file types and enable/disable
configuration parameters via containerization.
*WiFi Payloads – Allows IT to specify a preferred network connect order.
Improved identity payload allows Tangoe MDM protocol requests to be marked
with timestamps and additional data like phone numbers or email addresses.
*Application Virtualization – Offers a secure tunnel, authentication and
authorization of the application and access to the respective network
resource delivering the application. It also protects the application and
data from other applications on the device. With Tangoe MDM, IT can now
mobilize legacy window applications to a tablet or smart device, including
the ability to have a touch screen and mimic the touch UI securely. Tangoe
MDM now supports all iOS VPN configuration options.
