    Company wide applications

    Hi

    We are rolling out iPads for our managers (15pcs) and this could extend to other employees as well. The CEO wanted this asap so a few managers have bought an iPad themselves and are already using it with there personal iTunes accounts.

    The IT Manager would like to centralize the management of the iPads. Googling doesn't show much relevant results. The Q's I have:

    - How can we purchase Apps (Pages, RDP client, ...) and distribute them on all the iPads?
    - How can we prevent users from installing additional apps?
    - Is it possible to set a password when starting the iPad?
    - Can an iPad be remotely 'erased'? I know RIM offers this.
    - Can settings be remotely changed (roaming etc)?
    - How can we give the iPads access to our company shares?

    We would allow the users to surf and download music from there personal iTunes.

    We have a Win2k3 domain, pptp VPN is working on a few iPads.

    Can't really help with your queries but can suggest you take at look at this blog where an IT teacher rolled out 100 iPads for his school Fraser Speirs - Blog Index.
    Basically he lists problems and solutions etc. with links to other resources.

    NB There is a general setting which can require a 4 digit password to unlock the iPad plus apps such as Stash which can password protect sensitive information stored on the machine.

    As a start you want to look at the Apple Enterprise Deployment Guide. Policies can be deployed with the iPhone Configuration Utility, and if you use exchange Server, it will enforce email security policies. But start with the download of the enterprise deployment guide that is very helpful.
