Issue



Is Symantec Endpoint Protection Mobile Edition 6 (SEPME 6) supported on the iOS-based devices from Apple? Is the newer Symantec Mobile Security 7.2 (SMS 7.2)? What Symantec product will protect an iPhone?


Solution



Symantec Mobile Management supports iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, and Symbian devices all through a single management platform.  This is a product with features such as software deployment, management of password policies, remote wipe, and control over device features.  SMM integrates with Symantec Mobile Security products like SEPME 6. It has some security capabilities, but at this time cannot roll out an anti-malware client for iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry.

An enhancement request (Connect Forum "Idea") has been proposed for a Symantec Endpoint Protection Mobile Edition release that run on iOS-based devices.  For more details, and to express your opinion for or against such a product, please visit the Add iPhone and iPad Support to Symantec Endpoint Protection Mobile Edition entry in Connect, Symantec's peer-support forums.
