Preparing for iOS 7: New security features cater to enterprise developers
This month, developers are preparing for the release of Apple’s iOS 7. The advance is considered the most noteworthy iOS upgrade since the debut of the iPhone in 2007.
With the upgrade comes a myriad of new and improved security features, designed specifically for the benefit of enterprise mobility. These updates seek to both increase security as well as make security simpler and more convenient.
iOS 7’s new security features reflect a strategy aimed at accommodating the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) trend in enterprise. As more employees begin to utilize their personal devices in the workplace, the management of individual apps is becoming more important than the management of entire devices. The security upgrades in the latest iOS mark the gradual shift from MDM (Mobile Device Management) to MAM (Mobile App Management).
