Nokia is building corporate policy support into its mobile management software to make it easier for companies to manage their smartphones.
OMA Device Management server allows IT managers to remotely lock down mobile phones and erase sensitive data if devices are stolen or mislaid.
It also lets IT managers roll out applications across devices and control e-mail use and network access to corporate resources.
The server software is a product of the Open Mobile Alliance, an industry group of which Nokia is a member. It supports Symbian, Nokia and other platforms, said Tarja Kantola, senior product marketing manager at Nokia.
The software is licensed to the individual user, who may use multiple devices.
