Google announced in a blog post this evening a new feature called iOS Account Wipe. This feature allows Google Apps admins to easily delete an employee’s corporate account and data from their iPhone or iPad without affecting their personal data, such as photos or music.
Prior to today, Google offered a Remote Wipe functionality, but it erased the entire device, including the employee’s personal data. Remote Wipe will still be available, however, and will simply live alongside iOS Account Wipe.
Google also revealed that it is launching enhanced functionality for Android Mobile Application Management:
These new features can help admins get their employees up and running on Android for Work faster (with auto-install into an employee’s Work Profile) and stay productive (by preventing employees from uninstalling certain apps)—while at the same time keeping data protected (with widget control).
