MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — MobileIron, the innovator in enterprise management and security for mobile devices and apps, today announced MobileIron AppConnect, the best way for enterprises to secure mobile apps. MobileIron also announced the first wave of MobileIron AppConnect partners: Accellion, Box, GoodReader, GroupLogic, NitroDesk, Quickoffice, Roambi, Wyse PocketCloud and Xora.
Using MobileIron AppConnect, enterprises are able to secure company data across the lifecycle of their mobile apps, from deployment to usage to retirement. MobileIron AppConnect secures both company-developed apps as well as select third-party apps on the App Store, Android Market and other mobile app distribution services. MobileIron AppConnect will be available to MobileIron customers and developers at no additional charge.
As mobile apps quickly become essential business tools, untrusted apps carry increasingly greater risk of company data loss. MobileIron AppConnect secures both app data at rest and data in motion by giving IT and developers the following capabilities:
- Authentication: Ensure only approved users can access app data. Confirm identity through certificates and provide single sign-on capabilities (SSO) across multiple apps.
- Configuration: Set up the app properly with appropriate settings.
- Authorization: Allow or disallow app usage or data storage based on device posture.
- Access control: Block app access to the corporate network if security is compromised.
- Analytics: Provide insight into app usage.
- Removal: Remotely wipe the app and app data on the mobile device.
MobileIron AppConnect extends MobileIrons proven security framework to apps and is the latest phase in our vision of enterprise app security and management, said Ojas Rege, VP of Product, MobileIron. The first phase was to secure the enterprise against rogue apps through our App Control policy engine. The second was to give IT a way to securely distribute apps to users via our Enterprise App Storefront. The third, with MobileIron AppConnect, is to secure app data at rest and data in motion across the entire app lifecycle.
MobileIron AppConnect partners include some of the most innovative workplace apps. Partners will be featured as recommended apps in MobileIrons Enterprise App Storefront accelerating their distribution into the enterprise customer base.
