The mobile security provider Good Technology announced Monday the official release of Good Work, an on-premise or cloud-hosted enterprise mobility management (EMM) suite initially introduced earlier this year.

Built on the Good Dynamics platform, Good Work's consumer-grade interface is designed to give users a central portal for accessing relevant business tools. For example, users navigate among secure email, messaging, contacts, calendar, documents and browsing all from a single app.

"As adoption of BYOD continues to explode. Businesses of all sizes are looking for simpler, more manageable, more affordable and more secure solutions to address the complexity of dealing with hundreds – if not thousands of device types and operating systems,” said Christy Wyatt, chairman and chief executive at Good Technology, in a statement. "Good Work enables both large and mid-size businesses with an intuitive cloud-based solution, making it simple and affordable to harness the power of secure mobility to drive new business processes."

As a part of the introduction of Good Work, the mobile security provider is also announcing the Good Secure Mobile Productivity Suite, an all-in-one cloud-based tool for managing documents and delivering mobile CRM sales productivity through Good for Salesforce1.

Technology also announced Monday key findings from its Mid-Market Mobility Trends Survey, which found that while mid-market companies are increasingly adopting entry-level mobility, security concerns still abound: 

• Over 70 percent of mid-market companies have adopted basic mobile services including email and mobile device management (MDM); 

• Organizations that formally support BYOD report almost 50 percent more user privacy concerns than those that don't; 

• Every mid-market industry plans to add mobile security or app management capabilities within the next year.
