STERLING, Va. & TORONTO--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Fixmo, a leading provider of mobile security and mobility management solutions, today announced support for the new Apple iOS 7 operating system and the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C across its portfolio of enterprise mobility management solutions. With the Fixmo SafeZone secure workspace, Fixmo SafeLock MDM, Fixmo Sentinel integrity verification service and Fixmo Secure Gesture biometric authentication, organizations can embrace Apple’s latest operating system and devices while ensuring they can protect their sensitive business information and maintain regulatory compliance with defense-grade security trusted throughout the U.S. Department of Defense.
“With support for iOS 7, Fixmo will help its customers embrace the latest operating system and devices from Apple while ensuring their sensitive business data remains protected and within their compliance guidelines.”
New devices and operating systems introduce significant risk for organizations that allow employees to access corporate information on mobile devices. Whether company-issued or employee-owned, mobile devices pose security threats when connected to a corporate network and new devices introduce many unknowns with respect to platform security and potential vulnerabilities. Fixmo enables a secure and compliant approach to embracing iOS devices in the enterprise with the ability to centrally manage policy controls and mobile applications, as well as protect corporate email, browsing, documents, Microsoft SharePoint and custom apps within a FIPS 140-2 AES 256-bit encrypted and controlled secure container environment.
Fixmo Sentinel integrity services and Fixmo SafeLock MDM v5.2 now offer full support for iOS 7 devices within the enterprise. With Fixmo SafeLock and Fixmo Sentinel for iOS 7, IT organizations can maintain tight control over device policy configurations and application whitelist/blacklist policies, with the ability to detect system-level compromises and policy violations such as OS Jailbreaking, disallowed Bluetooth device connections or tampering of the MDM profile.
Fixmo has also updated the Fixmo SafeZone secure container solution to ensure enterprise and government customers can keep all corporate data and apps encrypted, contained and under IT control on iOS 7 devices – independent of the personal side of the device. The enhanced version of Fixmo SafeZone v5.3 with iOS 7 support will be demonstrated at the Gartner Symposium ITxpo event from October 6-10 in Orlando, Florida.
“The adoption of Apple iOS devices continues to grow rapidly within our expanding base of customers across the Government, Healthcare and Financial Services markets,” said Bruce Gilley, President of Fixmo U.S. “With support for iOS 7, Fixmo will help its customers embrace the latest operating system and devices from Apple while ensuring their sensitive business data remains protected and within their compliance guidelines.”
