Apple Cozying Up to Microsoft Partners? CSS' mCMS

Posted by CSS Marketing on Nov 18, 2011 7:19:57 AM

This week we’ve seen the latest chapter in the Microsoft/Apple love/hate relationship… and it would seem that love is conquering all… at least for the time being. As CRN reports, Apple is reaching out to Microsoft partners that can help integrate iPhones and iPads into enterprise environments.

S/MIME.

The current version of iOS4.x supports the use of digital certificates for authentication: to things like wireless networks, VPNs, and Microsoft ActiveSync . But starting with iOS 5, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch users will be able to send and receive digitally signed and encrypted email messages directly from their device.
