LogMeIn Previews Controls for Securing Access From iPads and iPhones in the Workplace

So you’ve been hearing about  LogMeIn’s new service to secure and manage access from employee iPads, eh? Wondering what it is? Well, we can’t wait to tell you all about it! Right now, we’re taking the covers off our new service that blends Total Access with Total Control.

With LogMeIn Ignition you’ve long been able to access your actual desktop, and the applications, files and data that are important to you. This is Total Access.

Now we’re making sure that full access has a true place in our work organizations. We’ve added a set of management tools to LogMeIn Central designed to control that access – which computers and data can be accessed, by whom, and from what device. This is Total Control.

With this new service, you can:

  • Enroll individually owned and IT-procured iOS devices into an organization’s mobile inventory
  • Authorize individual iOS devices for remote access to one or more company computers, including access to corporate apps and files
  • Manage remote access rights and permissions by individual, computer, and/or mobile device
  • Control whether files can be remotely transferred from remote computers to individual mobile devices
  • Handle lost or stolen devices by remotely wiping stored credentials

We’re really excited about the services, and we’re showing a preview today. General availability will certainly follow later. If you’re interested in hearing and seeing more, why not head over to https://secure.logmein.com/accesscontrol and register!

Coming soon: Ignition iOS update

I’m Tara, the new Sr. Product Marketing Manager for Ignition. You’ll be hearing more from me in the coming months, but I get the pleasure of telling you about our upcoming iOS update as my first blog post.

We just submitted the app to Apple for approval so we’re just days away from getting you the latest enhancements and improvements. We’re excited about the three new features coming to users of Ignition for iOS.  For now, I’m giving you a sneak peak of our photos and videos feature which allows you to copy photos between your iPad/iPhone photo library and Ignition, so they’re always accessible in one place.

Fresh off the development build, here are some screen shots.

I have gigabytes of photos on my desktop computer and I obviously can’t carry all of them with me. Now I can easily grab my favorite photo of my home town (Anchorage, AK), copy them to Ignition using File Manager and they’re automatically available in the Photo app on my new iPad2. Slick!

Stay tuned for more details on our update, it’s coming soon.
