Citrix regards mobile device management as "a feature more than a product", director of mobility Bede Hackney told iTWire, which is why the company has released XenMobile MDM rather than a point product.

Please read on.

XenMobile MDM provides the foundation to address these needs through role-based management, configuration and security of corporate and employee-owned devices.

IT staff can use it to automatically apply policies and apps to groups of devices, and users can self-enrol the devices they bring to work. XenMobile MDM includes Active Directory integration.

Other functions included app blacklisting and whitelisting, blocking jailbroken devices, and wiping or selectively wiping (to erase business data while leaving personal data intact) devices that are lost, stolen or out of compliance (eg, when employees jailbreak their iPhones and the policy forbids jailbreaking).

Also new from Citrix is the Mobile Solutions Bundle for Enterprise Mobility Management, which comprises XenMobile MDM, Citrix CloudGateway (the company's unified service broker for aggregating, controlling and delivering Windows, web, SaaS, iOS and Android applications - think of it as an enterprise app store), and - as an introductory promotion - ShareFile (Citrix's enterprise-grade file sharing and synchronisation product).

Together, these products "cover the field" for smartphone and tablet deployments, Hackney suggested.

"We are becoming a significant player in the MDM space... For the first time ever you can get all the components for enterprise mobility from one supplier."
