The solution enables the organization to address its issues with fully-featured mobile device management and a secure browser, which provides the most reliable and flexible options for implementing and integrating Web and social media security across multiple mobile platforms, including iPhone, Android smartphones, iPad, Android tablets such as Google Nexus, Amazon Kindle Fire, and Samsung Galaxy, and Windows and Mac laptops.

In a scenario where BYOD and mobile security is expected to be one of the top issues of organizations in the year 2013, this new mobile security solution from Edgewave allows organizations to easily and quickly extend the ground-breaking Social Media Security and iPrism Web Security solutions to cover every mobile phone device, everywhere, including on a mobile carrier’s network, on an organization’s network, or on Wi-Fi.
