With iOS 8, Apple places an even greater focus on enterprise mobility, confirming Cortado’s strategy
(BERLIN/DENVER, July 29, 2014) Cortado, a leading provider of enterprise mobility solutions, today announces that its on-premises solution, Cortado Corporate Server, will fully support iOS 8, which is due later this year. After iOS 7 created a milestone and introduced the secure business container to companies, iOS 8 will offer further productivity and security enhancements, such as the ability to save documents to systems other than iCloud. Combined with Cortado Corporate Server as an enterprise mobility solution, iOS 8 creates the optimal strategy for any business.
With iOS 7, launched last year at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), companies already have a range of tools at their disposal to build a secure business container. The next step forward is due this year as iOS 8 will offer companies expanded MDM and collaboration features. These include numerous enhancements such as document provider APIs or the document push feature. With iOS 8, Apple takes a decisive step to becoming the standard OS for businesses.
Cortado views the announcement as confirming its strategy and as with iOS 7, will support the latest Apple OS, iOS 8, including all advanced features. With Cortado Corporate Server, companies not only have the ability to create a secure iOS 8 business container, but benefit from the easy management of existing and new users through full Active Directory integration.
“Just like with iOS 7, we were more than excited to hear what was announced at this year’s WWDC – it fits perfectly with our own approach with Cortado Corporate Server,” said Carsten Mickeleit, CEO at Cortado. “We are fully prepared to entirely support iOS 8 after its release later this year and have a number of highly productive features already lined up for future releases.”
