CA Technologies has announced the release of its SaaS-based Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution suite with zero-day support for iOS 8.
Apple unveiled iOS 8 Tuesday at the much hyped Apple iPhone 6 launch. The latest OS from Apple has a number of features that support the mobility demands from professionals.
With the new announcement CA Technologies is betting on the growing EMM SaaS market. According to Gartner, current global EMM market is roughly 70% on-premises and 30% SaaS.
The research agency predicts that SaaS uptake will increase as more enterprises realize the challenges of managing EMM/MDM solutions on their own.
Based on the company’s patent-pending Smart Containerization technology, the new SaaS solution expands on CA Management Cloud for Mobility portfolio. CA Technologies claims the solution provides enterprises with deployment flexibility, increased agility, and significant cost savings.
The solution allows enterprises to leverage iOS 8 features across SaaS and on-premise deployment models. The company also offers out-of-the-box iOS8 support for all of CA’s EMM products, enabling app wrapping, security and management for mobile apps developed using the new SWIFT programming language.
CA has also announced a free CA Mobile Device Management perpetual license with the purchase of any CA EMM solution.
