Google Apps Premier and Education Edition customers got a boost in their ability to manage mobile devices synced with Google Apps. Right from the 'Mobile' tab under 'Service Settings' in Google Apps online control panel, IT admins can remotely wipe data from lost or stolen mobile phones, configure devices to lock after a period of inactivity and set password strength requirements, without deploying any additional software or having to manage dedicated enterprise mobile servers. These new capabilities are available for iPhones, Windows Mobile devices and Nokia E-series phones. These policies will let employees access their data from their phone while helping IT administrators easily control access to corporate data on mobile devices. Stay tuned for similar features for Android devices like the Nexus One and Droid.
