Earlier this year, four leading enterprise mobility management (EMM) vendors, AirWach by VMware, IBM MaaS360, JAMF Software and MobileIron, announced they would come together to launch the AppConfig Community to promote enterprise app development and best practices. While the founding members originally focused on iOS app development, they quickly realized the importance of creating Android standards as a means for enhancing EMM security.
On Wednesday, September 9, Apple will host an event where they will be announcing new product roll-outs and the final version of iOS 9, which will probably be released when the newest iPhones are available.
In conjunction, each of our EMM vendor partners will be recommending certain preparations that customers can take to ensure enrolled devices and console configurations remain unaffected once end users begin updating their Apple devices to iOS 9.
Today marks the kickoff of this year’s ILTACON conference! ILTACON is a four-day educational conference that draws on the personal and collective strengths of professionals working in technology within law firms and legal departments. ILTACON provides these professionals with a forum to share what works, what doesn’t, and the tools to face challenges now and in the future.
This week, Gartner released its Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) Suites. The Magic Quadrant is the go-to resource for an objective perspective on technology and service markets. In the report, Gartner reviewed and ranked the following 12 EMM platforms: AirWatch by VMWare, Blackberry, Citrix, Globo, Good Technology, IBM (MaaS360), Landesk, Microsoft, MobileIron, SAP, Sophos and Soti. Five suites were identified in the Leaders Quadrant, including AirWatch by VMWare, IBM (MaaS360) and MobileIron, TechOrchard’s preferred EMM partners.

The following new releases are now available for customers who have already purchased the product. To evaluate products not already purchased, contact your MobileIron sales team.
The Core 184.108.40.206 maintenance release includes the following updates:
Wi-Fi proxy provisioning for Windows Phone 8.1 — Added support for Windows Phone 8.1 devices to connect to Wi-Fi networks using a proxy server, providing more security options for enterprises and enabling Wi-Fi connection for device users without direct connection to the internet.
Prevent simple passwords for Windows Phone 8.1 — Added a new security preference to prevent device users from using simple passwords such as 1234 or 1111, providing more security options for enterprises.
Static labels not displaying assigned devices — Static labels with more than 800 devices assigned to them did not display the assigned devices in Core 7.5.0. This is now fixed.
Duplicate LDAP group records impacted LDAP group updates — Duplicate records in an LDAP group resulted in issues with updating the LDAP group information. This is now fixed.
Improper exporting of Reporting Database for security_detail property for Android devices — In previous releases, the Reporting Database export did not handle the security_detail property for Android devices correctly. This is now fixed.
Unable to import VPP apps from IE9 browser — In a previous release, attempts to import VPP apps were not successful if the Admin Portal was running in the IE9 browser. This is now fixed.
Failure to receive AppConnect app configurations — Previously, Core could generate multiple SCEP certificates and fail to send AppConnect app configurations to Mobile@Work. The system will now use the latest SCEP certificate if multiple exist for the app configuration.

- Action Source not showing Exchange when device blocked — Previously, with Integrated Sentry, the Action Source did not show Exchange when a device was blocked on the Exchange server. This is now fixed.
- Retired and Active-Sync blocked devices with access to ActiveSync — Upon upgrade to Core 7.5.0, some devices that were manually blocked and retired prior to the upgrade could re-register with the Core and access the ActiveSync server. This is now fixed.
Windows Phone 8.1
- Search import form issue for Windows Phone 8.1 specific apps — “Windows Store Import” was unable to search for select apps available only for Windows Phone 8.1 version. This is now fixed.
