Good Technology merges mobile products for securing data between apps

Summary:In light of the recent NSA data leak debacle, Good Technology reps highlighted what they described as an "under-played security issue with enterprise mobility."

Good Technology is integrating a number of its mobile security solutions into a single package for shoring up data potholes in between apps.

The Good Secure Mobility Solution is a composite of the company's Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform and Collaboration Suite along with a number of third-party and custom-developed enterprise apps.

Some of those independent software vendor apps include Microsoft's SharePoint, SAP, and Box.

Good asserted that this portfolio is also the "first to incorporate mobile application analytics to measure the actual usage of applications, historical trending and app-to-app comparisons."

In light of the recent NSA data leak debacle, Good Technology reps highlighted what they described as an "under-played security issue with enterprise mobility," which is the lack of security along the workflow path.

Good argued that it remedies said issue by encrypting data between apps rather than just securing the devices.

Thus, some of the key features include an SDK for containerization of native iOS and Android apps as well as monitoring mobile infrastructures from device to carrier to internal systems to alert IT about suspicious activity.

The platform is designed to support and protect mobile apps across Android, iOS and Windows devices.
