I have a user community (100 or so pilots) that want to use iPads for their operations.  
I want to be able to restrict the software that they can load onto the devices.  Is there
a mechanism that can be used to accomplish this?  Thank you.

    I am currently looking into Sophos Mobile Control and it states that it will do this.  You can get a "try it now free" version from this website:  I do not yet have experience with this particular Sophos product however I am running their email and web appliances as well as their virus software and am very happy with them.
