    Eliminate Containers for iOS Management

    In the world of MDM, a container is an additional app designed to serve as a secure location for corporate info such as email, calendars, contacts, and even web browsing. Organizations are drawn to this concept, but in reality, it adds unnecessary bulk to iOS and gets in the way of a good user experience. Containers became popular among some MDM solutions for helping overcome Android security flaws.

    The reality is that iOS native apps (Mail, Calendar, Contacts, and Safari) are already secure. There is simply no need for a "secure" email container. To preserve the best experience for users, simply use configuration profiles. A profile has the ability to add an Exchange account to iOS, which will in turn provide access to corporate email and calendars.
