Amazon Fire devices are ready for business

Amazon Fire devices are finding their way into the workplace, especially in business that support Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). Users love their mobile devices and are using them for both work and play. They can stay productive whether in the office or at home with the devices that they choose.

Fire OS, which powers the popular Kindle Fire tablets and the new fire phone, is enterprise-ready. IBM® MaaS360® was the first to manage these devices for corporate use and supports Fire OS for the Amazon Fire Phone, Kindle Fire HD tablet and Kindle Fire HDX tablet. The solution provides tools to gain insight, perform actions, set and distribute policies, manage apps and documents, and much more.
