Absolute Software, a provider of firmware-based, data protection and secure computer lifecycle management offerings, has launched its Manage Mobile Device Management (MDM) for iOS 4 devices, such as the iPhone and iPad.

The new offering available with Absolute Manage enables IT departments to manage and secure iOS 4 devices alongside their PC and Mac computers from their platform of choice, Mac or Windows.

Absolute Manage enables IT administrators to remotely manage, wipe and lock Apple iOS 4 devices from either a PC or Mac computer without the need for extra hardware or software infrastructure.

With the addition of MDM, Absolute Manage users can manage PCs, Mac computers and now iOS 4 devices from a single, comprehensive user interface in a PC or Mac infrastructure.

Absolute Manage MDM features include asset inventory, data & device security, remote provisioning, absolute apps, and end user messaging.

The new Absolute Manage MDM features for PC and Mac computers include application and license management; security, change and configuration management; automated patch management; computer imaging; power management; and asset inventory.
