Here is what I received from our Apple rep:
Mobile Device Management (MDM) - Third Party Solutions

iPhone and iPad both support Mobile Device Management, giving businesses the ability to manage scaled deployments of iPhone/iPad across their organizations. These Mobile Device Management capabilities are built upon existing iOS technologies like Configuration Profiles, Over-the-Air Enrollment, and the Apple Push Notification service and can be integrated with in-house or third-party server solutions. This gives IT departments the ability to securely enroll iPhone/iPad in an enterprise environment, wirelessly configure and update settings, monitor compliance with corporate policies, and even remotely wipe or lock managed iPhone/iPad devices.

Here is a list of third party mobile device management companies (in alphabetical order):
