Google Apps Expands Mobile Device Controls

Administrators for Google Apps Premier and Education editions on Tuesday were granted new powers over their companies' mobile devices.

Building upon enterprise support capabilities introduced last year and in February for BlackBerry, iPhone, Nokia, and Windows Mobile devices, Google has added six new mobile device management options to help IT administrators secure corporate data.

The added capabilities include: requiring devices to use data encryption; auto-wiping devices after a set number of failed password entry attempts; disabling the device's camera; ensuring that old passwords are not reused; requiring password changes after a set period of time; and disabling data synchronization when roaming to reduce data charges.
