Good Technology and BoxTone Deliver Enterprise Mobility Management Solution
December 04, 2012
Mobile security management specialist Good Technology has formed partnership with BoxTone (News - Alert) to deliver a comprehensive enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution with innovative mobile device and application management capabilities.
The integrated mobile device and mobile security management solution is designed to address the rapidly evolving needs of IT and lines of business leaders. With a diverse mix of BYO and company owned smartphones and tablets, multiple mobile OS platforms, and ever growing business and productivity apps, mobile enterprise environments are increasingly complex.
While companies are looking to harness the power of mobility to boost employee productivity, increase competitiveness, and better serve their customers, they also face immense challenges while managing these devices. The integrated mobile device and mobile security management solution from Good and BoxTone is designed to address the rapidly evolving needs of IT and lines of business leaders.
According to industry experts, standalone mobile device management (MDM) simply does not meet the demands of a fully-mobilized enterprise. By incorporating mobile app security, containerization and service management features as core capabilities, Good and BoxTone have set an industry standard for mobile device management and mobile security management for several years.
Nick McQuire, IDC (News - Alert) research director, Mobile Enterprise Strategies, said in a statement, "More and more companies are recognizing that they need to take a strategic approach to enterprise mobility, moving beyond standalone MDM or MAM to an integrated solution. A deeper relationship between Good Technology (News - Alert) and BoxTone will certainly help customers take a more comprehensive and analytical approach to managing and securing their mobile lifecycle across users, devices, applications and platforms."
To be specific, the integration of the capabilities of two companies delivers four critical capabilities of the mobile lifecycle: mobile security, mobile device and application management, mobile analytics and mobile service management. The solution will benefit enterprises and government agencies as they can confidently transition to mobile-first organizations to increase employee productivity, improve customer service and create new sources of revenue.
"We're excited to work with BoxTone to provide the enterprise marketplace with comprehensive service management, sophisticated analytics, and unified reporting so they can enhance the health, ROI, and compliance of their mobility deployments," said John Herrema, senior vice president of Corporate Strategy, Good Technology.
Brian C. Reed, chief marketing and product officer, BoxTone, said, "With more than a hundred joint customers already, our strategic partnership with Good will help more companies remove the barriers to mobilizing their enterprise safely, efficiently and reliably, laying the foundation for long-term mobile success."
