Advantage of iOS7 for enterprises

Apple with its iOS7 brought in a revolution in the enterprise sector. iOS7, the latest evolution of Apple, has promising features for enterprises of small and medium levels. It sports impressive look, upgraded functionality, security features and business-critical advantages. It facilitates sensitive data security, wireless file sharing, central control, and employee management at workplace. The business sector has been eloquent with kudos for iOS7. Here is why how enterprises can benefit from iOS7.

Employers are often concerned with the security of mobile devices that their employees use at workplace. Some of the key employees in an organization have access to the sensitive business-critical data which they may store in their personal mobile devices, or the mobile phones provided to them officially. Security of the stored data is a concern as mobile devices may be lost or stolen. Access to the vital data via hacking of the lost or stolen mobile phones can expose the organization to risks.

But, iOS7 has mitigated the mobile phone data security concerns of enterprises. The application packs in a number of security features. With the Activation Lock feature, it is difficult to crack the password-protected phones and leak data. Adding to the security is the Fingerprint Scanner which works on the basis of passcodes. These safeguards integrated with the latest iOS7 stand for Apple’s promise to enhance security for users.

Besides general security, the latest iOS7 comes with other options which ensure the security of specific enterprise apps. It helps the IT departments of organizations to monitor employees’ access and use of enterprise apps. The ADMIN unit of organizations can leverage these features of iOS7 to keep a check on employees’ activities at workplace. Thus, iOS7 indirectly help employees to keep their personal life and professional life separate. Using it, companies can restrict access to the vital apps for some employees who are no more involved in a project.

File sharing is one of the enterprise-level activities supported by the AirDrop functionality of iOS7. It facilitates wireless file sharing for iPhone users, and information sharing among colleagues during conferences and meetings. Thus, iOS7 can be leveraged to streamline enterprise communication. It offers iCloud facilities too.

Evidently, enterprises are looking to absorb these advantages of iOS7 into their daily functioning for better administration and operation.
