It further expands CA's Management Cloud for Mobility portfolio.

Based on its patent-pending Smart Containerisation technology, the new SaaS solution enterprises deployment flexibility, increased agility, and significant cost savings, according to a company statement.

CA Technologies general manager, new business innovation, Ram Varadarajan, said application economy had made mobility management a cornerstone of employee and business productivity.

"CA's new SaaS solution unlocks the full potential of enterprise mobility by focusing on what matters to customers: innovation, efficiency and accelerated development of new mobile apps and services to drive productivity and revenue."

According to recent Gartner research, the current global EMM market is roughly 70 per cent on-premises and 30 per cent SaaS.

But Gartner projects SaaS uptake to increase as more enterprises realise the challenges of managing EMM/MDM solutions on their own.

According to a company statement, enterprises can now leverage iOS 8 features across SaaS and on-premise deployment models.

In addition, the out-of-the-box iOS8 support -- available for all of CA's EMM products - enables app wrapping, security and management for mobile apps developed using the new SWIFT programming language.
