M.A.D. Partners Defends Against Jailbroken iPhones on Corporate Networks

M.A.D. Partners, LLC, the smartphone security company, introduced an automatic solution that solves the iPhone and iPad jailbreaking problem on corporate networks. Now that jailbreaking the iPhone is legal, corporate users may be tempted to download applications from locations other than iTunes, posing a security threat to the corporate network. With Mobile Active Defense, the iPhone stays in communication with M.A.D.'s Mobile Enterprise Compliance and Security (MECS) Server, which detects any company-defined "out of compliance" or "out of policy" conditions, now including jailbroken status.
