NEW ORLEANS, May 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CTIA WIRELESS® 2012 Booth #MR-1423 -- 3LM, a provider of enterprise-grade security, management and remote access for mobile devices and applications, today announced the release of version 3.0 of its security and management platform. Version 3.0 extends 3LM's Mobile Device and Application Management (MDAM) support to any Android OS-based mobile handset or tablet operating on the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) platform, adds in several new security and management features, and introduces security and management support for Apple's iOS-enabled iPhones and iPads.

Responding to increasing market demand to support the leading mobile OS' in the U.S., 3LM introduced significant new features to its MDAM platform that enable companies to remotely manage and secure corporate data on Android- and iOS-based mobile handsets and tablets. As Android and Apple's iOS represent 78 percent marketshare of all mobile application downloads, according to ABI Research, and 76.9 percent of total smartphones in the U.S. as of December 2011, according to ComScore, 3LM's enterprise-grade management and security is giving enterprise IT greater peace of mind when adopting the Android or iOS platform throughout  their organization.

"Android and iOS mobile devices created the BYOD market, and we purposefully built the 3LM security and management solution to ensure Android and iOS mobile devices are enterprise-ready," said Tom Moss, CEO at 3LM. "We introduced a new generation of corporate mobile security and management capabilities with the 3LM embedded Android solution, and we're now taking it to the next level. As the Android and iOS platforms continue to outperform the growth of all other mobile OS' combined, 3LM is enabling IT and corporate end-users to use their Android and iOS-based mobile devices to their fullest potential."

Through strategic partnerships with industry leaders, the 3LM solution is embedded in Android devices from leading device manufacturers. 3LM provides IT with capabilities to help remotely manage and secure data both on the device locally and while in transit to the enterprise. Existing 3LM features include enhanced Android device management and security, mobile application management (MAM) and secure remote access (VPN).

The new features of 3LM include the following:

  • Support for Apple iOS devices
  • New, more friendly user interface for the IT administrator
  • Integration with enterprise Active Directory
  • Control usage of ADB on employee devices
  • Prevent 3LM DM app from being removed by end user
  • Prevent Copy & Paste between corporate apps and non corporate apps
  • Wi-Fi SSID whitelisting
  • Wi-Fi configuration (SSID, security type, password)

The 3LM enterprise solution is generally available direct through 3LM and through strategic partnerships. 3LM is embedded on mobile devices from leading handset manufacturers including HTC, Motorola, LG, Sony Mobile, Kyocera, Pantech and Sharp.

The 3LM solution will be demonstrated at the CTIA WIRELESS® 2012, being held May 8-10, 2012 at The New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in booth #MR-1423; New Orleans, La.
