Newsbyte: SAP Embraces IOS 7 To Improve And Simplify The Enterprise Experience

WALLDORF, Germany, Sept. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  SAP NEWSBYTE -- With mobile playing a critical role in today's best-run businesses, SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today announced that the comprehensive suite of mobile solutions from SAP will support key iOS 7 features. SAP is committed to rapidly supporting customers running the latest mobile operating system from Apple with SAP® Mobile Secure solutions, SAP® Mobile Platform and mobile apps from SAP. Many of the new enterprise features within iOS 7 will benefit SAP customers eager to adopt corporate security requirements such as single sign-on, per-app VPN and app configuration. SAP has validated iOS 7 for apps running on SAP Mobile Platform both on premise and in the cloud, and will further enhance support with upcoming releases of the software development kit (SDK) for SAP Mobile Platform.


SAP has one of the largest enterprise deployments of iOS devices, and has successfully deployed iPhones and iPads across all business functions, including sales, marketing, services, development and operations.

"SAP Global IT supports more than 50,000 iOS devices used by employees worldwide," said Mike Golz, CIO, SAP Americas. "The enhancements in iOS 7 will allow us to better serve our employees, who rely on more than 60 iOS mobile apps to succeed in their day-to-day jobs on both BYOD and corporate devices. Since the consumerization of IT drives enterprise decisions, Apple's success in the consumer market will be a key indicator for enterprise adoption."

Mobile security is about securing three business critical areas: devices, apps and content. New features publically noted in iOS 7 further consolidate the role of mobile device management in protecting enterprises against costly downtime or IP theft. These include the simplified enrollment process, per app VPN for secure communications, "Open In" attachment management to control sensitive documents and email, Single Sign On for enterprise applications and VPP enhancements to improve licensing of enterprise applications. SAP will support new security and management features to offer scalable support for iOS 7 with the SAP Mobile Secure portfolio, including the SAP® Afaria® mobile device management solution and the SAP® Mobile App Protection solution by Mocana both on premise and in the cloud.

"Apple has made it easier for the enterprise to adopt its devices with the release of iOS 7, which is considered by many as the biggest upgrade since its debut, and bodes especially well for enterprise developers and IT managers," said Anthony Reynolds, senior vice president, Worldwide Mobile Sales and Solutions, SAP. "The changes Apple is implementing in iOS 7 directly align with our goal of enhancing, securing and simplifying the end-user experience. SAP will help customers build beautiful mobile apps and securely use iOS devices in mission-critical business environments."
