iOS 6.1 lock-screen bypass is seriously bad news – for native application developers

OK, so the news today that IOS devices can be hacked by following a now publicly available procedure to enable a user to bypass the iPhone and iPad password lock is seriously BAD news … particularly for companies who are looking to deploy IOS devices as part of an enterprise BYOD initiative to access corporate mobile applications.

It should be plainly obvious why letting an unscrupulous hacker into your ‘secure’ IOS device will be seen as a major security risk, particularly if your device includes applications that have auto-log on functions and can access sensitive corporate content or data.

Luckily, there is salvation for IOS users who want to have access to enterprise mobile applications

Azurati’s HTML5 Mobile Application Container solution, called the Azurati Mobile Portal, provides enterprise users with a secure virtual mobile desktop where approved corporate mobile applications can be accessed and launched, once authenticated, securely.

Users authenticate to the Mobile Portal container environment using any one of 15 supported authentication methods, including Active Directory Federated profiles (ADFS), 2-factor authentication, third party Identity Management solutions, as well as via third party providers, like Windows LiveID, Google or Yahoo profiles.  Once authenticated, users will be able to launch HTML5 web applications from the Mobile Portal container with single sign-on.
