TARMAC 1.4 adds Mobile Device Management commands

updated 03:50 pm EST, Tue January 18, 2011

Version 1.4 ships iOS 4.3 ready

iOS business integration software TARMAC 1.4 has been launched by equinux today, adding new MDM support for iPhones and iPads. The software sets up iOS devices to function in a business, distributes settings over the air, personalizes profiles and provides access to data on the network. The new version supports MDM -- Mobile Device Management -- commands, giving IT managers centralized control over iOS devices on their network. Once registered, MDM-profiled iOS devices provide info like the operators' name, the available space on the device, the iOS version, security settings and other metadata. Push updates are available via MDM for changing or updating -- in the background -- device settings, profiles, web links and security settings.

The MDM profiles allow an IT technician to manage user profiles, set password requirements, limit camera access and prevent access to external services like the iTunes App Store and YouTube. It can also wipe data from a lost or stolen device.

The new version is also ready for Apple's pending iOS 4.3 release. The server software is $700, while device licenses start at $80 per year, with bulk pricing available.
