iPhones and Business Solutions
There are many reasons why a business would choose to work with iOS devices for their company. Whether the users are employees or business owners, everyone appreciates the simplicity of setup, as well as the ease of use of the iOS devices.
One reason why it is easy, is because iOS supports integration of the most popular corporate communication systems. This integration allows direct connection with mail servers such as Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Domino via Exchange ActiveSync, and also provides IMAP server users with consistently reliable access to their emails, calendars, contacts, tasks and notes. Apple iOS also supports calendar access through CalDAV and corporate directory access via CardDAV and LDAP.
Third-party server-based Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions, offer an efficient way to enroll, configure, and manage large quantities of iOS devices at the same time. These solutions work seamlessly with the already built-in MDM framework in iOS. This framework enables MDM servers to contact devices on demand without affecting performance or battery life. However, before deploying a critical mass of iOS devices, IT should evaluate a solution that fit the needs of the organization first.
Another reason why businesses choose smartphones, is because iOS makes it easy for iPhone to connect securely to a company’s network. Because iPhones have a built-in support for industry-standard wireless network protocols, as well as VPN services, iPhone users can access corporate data behind the firewall with the built-in VPN client in iOS and third-party SSL VPN apps on the App Store.
Even more, Wi-Fi access for enterprises is supported by WPA2-Enterprise and 802.1X authentication. Features like Automatic Wi-Fi Login and Persistent Wi-Fi make the process of joining known networks and staying connected easy, whether users are in the office, or on the road.
iOS is designed to make it simple for employees to set up their iPhones right out of the box, without requiring help from IT. The iOS Setup Assistant empowers users to get up and running within minutes by activating their devices, configuring basic settings, and allowing them to start working right away. Beyond basic settings, the users can quickly and easily customize their iPhone with personal preferences like language, location services, iCloud, Siri, Find My iPhone, etc.
For organizations with large-scale deployments, this means a faster start to productivity across the board and more time for IT to focus on other, more important technical projects.
