AT&T Toggle

AT&T Toggle is an enterprise mobile device management service that allows a smartphone owner to create separate personal and business environments on the same device.  Although the end user can easily switch between personal and business environments, the data in each environment remains isolated. 

Toggle is installed as a software application (app) to the user's device and managed by a network administrator through a Web portal. Corporate administrators can use Toggle to deploy business applications, grant access to specific data or erase all data from a phone if an employee loses the device or leaves the company. 

In a computing context, to toggle is to switch back and forth between different environments or features
