    Mobile Device Management

    I'm looking for something to manage the iPad's and Mac's. But I am also looking for something that they can access there windows home shares on there iPads. So basically something like Lightspeed Systems/AirWatch and Foldr, but not two seperate products, does anyone know of one that mixes the two together???

    Thanks

    Might struggle a bit finding an MDM service that works with county's current infrastructure. All schools on county broadband have the same IP which causes havoc with things like MDM services and Apple products.

    I'd have a look at Casper, as Mac deployment tools go it's one of the best..

    AFAIK Foldr is the only solution around that will let you access Windows home dirs from an iPad, there have been some updates to this on the last few days..

    You could set up WebDAV on your server and allow the iPads to use WebDAV navigator or other such app. This allows browsing of windows shares via iPad as long as nfts permission allows access.

    Microsoft have just released Office for iPad.
    From there, you can access SharePoint if you have it setup or OneDrive and OneDrive for Business.

    Alternatively, if you search for SMB on the App Store from an iPad you will find an array of File Browsers that will let you access Windows Shares.

    Hope this helps.
