Data protection, policy compliance and device control for mobile devices

iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows smartphones—whether they're company issued or personal devices, chances are they're using your corporate network. You have to secure these devices and keep the sensitive business data that's flowing safe and sound.

We can help make it easy for you to enforce a consistent security policy for smartphones used in your business. We'll let you control their security features and even remotely lock and wipe them if they get lost.

What you can do with Sophos Mobile Control:
