SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 28, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Prey Software, provider of the cross-platform, open source Prey AntiTheft software that protects more than eight million mobile devices, today announced Apple Push Certification for Prey software. Organizations now have a simple path to mobile device security and management using Prey’s trusted connection with Apple® iOS® for full remote control and access to Apple laptops, Iphones, and smart devices.

Mobile Device Management for iOS requires the use of various digital certificates for its operation, and Apple’s Push Certificate streamlines the process of establishing those trusted connections for universities, enterprises, and organizations that choose to use Apple devices. Prey completed the certification agreement to leverage advanced management features of iOS, and can now apply this protocol for users seeking to implement the advanced anti-theft security features that otherwise are locked down by Apple, such as:

Lock and wipe optimizes Prey’s prevention actions, reacting to lock down devices before they can be lost or stolen.

Multiple Device Management leverages advanced search, labeling, and mass action tools that enable organizations to track and control larger device fleets.

With a simple, straightforward workflow that can be accessed via a dedicated menu on Prey’s Online Panel, the new Apple Push Certification for Prey can be completed in five minutes or less. Prey customers simply fill in the required fields and upload the form to Apple, which will deliver a single, signed certificate that can be applied to one or more Apple devices. Users can then monitor and access their devices via their Prey dashboard and make full use of Prey.

“Prey Software is committed to helping organizations secure and recover their mobile devices across all platforms and operating systems. While we support all the primary operating systems,  iOS locked and limited what we could do before this certification, but now it’s simple to activate those features,” said Carlos Yaconi CEO and co-founder at Prey Software. “We’ve removed the complexity of secure mobile device management by establishing a simple process for users to establish the push certification with Apple right within Prey’s management console.”
