This is an interesting way for Apple to continue to make waves in the enterprise sector. Businesses that use Cisco’s defense or have certain Apple products will be eligible for this.  Apple’s press release mentions “qualified Apple products” although there is no information on which products are qualified, besides mentioning iPhone, iPad, and Mac.

Organizations can sign up for the service starting today.
