Trend Micro has launched the latest version of its mobile security product to add security and application control tools to help address bring your own device (BYOD) issues.

According to the company, Trend Micro Mobile Security (TMMS) 8.0 introduces a mobile application management system that allows IT to automatically push corporate apps to iOS, BlackBerry and Android devices.

Its features include more granular remote wipe capabilities and enhancements to the existing password and encryption policies, said Trend Micro.

Steve Quane, chief product officer at Trend Micro, said: “As personal mobile devices make their way into office environments, enterprises are seeing a much greater need to secure and manage these devices. TMMS 8.0 is focused on allowing IT administrators to simplify the management of their office environments, take advantage of the BYOD phenomenon and keep workforces productive and flexible.”
