Financial institution CUA has entered into an agreement with Good Technology to use its Good for Enterprise offering as the foundation for a secure bring-your-own-device (BYOD) rollout.

The company has about 400 devices that will be secured under Good's technology, and consists of a mix of company-owned and employee-owned devices. Of the devices, 70 percent run iOS, 15 percent use Android, and the remainder are a mixture of OS X and Windows.

The new approach to BYOD comes after CUA had been using BlackBerry devices and IBM software to provide its employees with added mobility. It is now discontinuing support for the devices, and IBM's offering as Good for Enterprise provides these functions, including secure browser access.

"Security credentials were absolutely key for us," CUA CIO David Gee said in a statement.

"As a retail financial institution, we need to have the trust of our 400,000 customers, and therefore cannot compromise on security at all. With Good, we have a very robust and secure platform for mobile collaboration, and, looking towards the future, mobile productivity applications."

The move towards a new BYOD approach is expected to complement the financial institution's efforts at its retail locations. In select branches, it has been installing iPads as a point of interaction with its customers. These are also secured using Good's offerings.

Details on the duration and value of the deal were not disclosed, but Good Technology recently announced a new monthly subscription model of $5 per user.
