I have a question regarding an rdp client for iPad. We have many users that want to rdp to there desktops using there iPad. We are governed by many rules since we have to comply with sec and other financial regularities. I am looking for a client we can control as we don't want file transfers,cached credentials and we cannot deploy a policy to these iPads because they are unmanaged devices. Any ideas

I use WinAdmin - which is a great tool and I think it would fit the bill for you too.

I don't see how this app will stop cached credentials etc without pushing a policy to the device

Not sure you will find one that doesn't store the credentials.

An IPAD is a device unmanaged by Active Directory

I am unaware of a way to 'manage' these security issues as effectively as our other devices.  That's a known issue with iPads in the enterprise at this point in time.  Some things to review and consider...

You might also look at this or find something similar:

Something else that you might want to think about is an enterprise mgmt system for these devices.  There are several out there, and here are a few for you to check out.

We've used Wyse and iTap both in our environment, and both of these store credentials.  There's no way to prevent and 'lock' this setting from being changed.
