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.
