Apple working on Enterprise features for the iPad

on September 28, 2010 | iPad | Comments (0)

Many have commented that the iPad will only be good for the consumer market and that the device lacks the corporate and enterprise features to become a truly useful business tool.

However it seems Apple is hard at work on releasing the new Operating System for the iPad.

In November Apple will release iOS 4.2 operating system for the iPad.

In this software update will finally be multitasking, along with the following enhancements:

– Data Protection (encrypted e-mails, attachments, and API calls)
– Wireless App Distribution (your company’s very own WiFi App Store)
– Improved Corporate Mail (better support for Microsoft Exchange)
– Mobile Device Management (like how IT locked down business mobile phones)
– SSL VPN Support (secure connections to enterprise resources)
– WiFi Printing (background Print Center applications)

However Apple is not the only company looking to gain more share with other vendors such as Microsoft, HP, Samsung, BlackBerry, HP and so on looking at building corporate tablet PCs.
