Sept. 30, 2011 - PRLog -- 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 MobileIron’s 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, including GroupLogic. Partners will be featured as recommended apps in MobileIron’s Enterprise App Storefront accelerating their distribution into the enterprise customer base.
GroupLogic helps enterprise and education IT organizations simply and securely integrate diverse computing platforms into enterprise environments, connecting employees to enterprise files, content and assets to facilitate a more productive and efficient work environment. GroupLogic’s mobilEcho is the industry’s first and only Mobile File Management (MFM) software for enterprise iPad users. mobilEcho enables enterprise IT to provide secure access to enterprise file servers for iPad users, eliminating the need for work-arounds like emailing files to yourself or storing critical enterprise files in unsecure third-party cloud providers.

As one of only a handful of MobileIron Systems Integrators and the only Enterprise Device Alliance Systems Integrator in the UK for Group Logic’s MobilEcho, Jigsaw Systems is delighted about this new partnership between MobileIron and Group Logic. According to Jigsaw’s Infrastructure Manager, Andy Cain, “AppConnect is a significant addition to MobileIron’s proven security framework and addresses customer concerns around application data at rest and in motion. We’ve been working with Group Logic for a while, and became a MobileIron Systems Integrator earlier in the year, and recognise the benefits of introducing MobilEcho to the MobileIron framework. This really is opening up a whole new level of mobile device management not previously possible.”

MobileIron AppConnect beta will be available to app developers in Q4 2011.
