Increased Demand for Secure Mobility in Europe Sparks Good Technology Expansion

Dec 16, 2013 | Sunnyvale, CA

Spike in activations and growing customer base fueling global momentum

Good Technology™, the leader in secure mobility, has announced leading European customers Tinkoff Bank, Schiphol Airport, TriOptima AB and Eurotunnel, have selected Good as their mobile device management and secure mobility solution provider.  In addition, Good also has extended its presence in the Benelux and Nordics as a result of increased demand, and secured two significant industry awards in the region.  

Eurotunnel recently announced that it has chosen Good Technology to secure its data and boost productivity with secure email, calendar information, contact details, document data and browser access. Security is a high priority for EuroTunnel and it saw Good’s solution as the way of achieving it on employee-owned devices without privacy concerns. To read more, see the full press release.

“Mobility strategy is a hot topic, with multiple surveys reporting CIOs believe it is a top priority;  the one constant, regardless of the specific strategy, is securing corporate data,”  said Lynn Lucas, Chief Marketing Officer at Good Technology.  “Good Technology has established operations in the UK, France and Germany for many years and now the scale of business and opportunity in these two regions demands greater local presence in the Benelux and Nordics.”

This expansion comes at a time when many organizations are reconsidering their mobility strategy. For businesses looking to migrate BlackBerry users, Good Technology is the most secure mobility provider for alternative platforms. Good for Enterprise is the only mobile messaging solution for iOS and Android that is Common Criteria EAL-4+ certified and which uses FIPS 140-2 validated encryption. In addition, CESG, the UK Government's National Technical Authority for Information Assurance, has just released ‘Security Guidance for Good Dynamics and Good for Enterprise’.   Good Technology is the only secure mobility solution provider to receive this guidance for iOS and Android platforms.

Long considered the industry leader in connected containers, Good offers BlackBerry customers a secure alternative to protect critical apps and data on corporate liable, bring your own (BYO) and corporate owned, personally enabled (COPE) devices across multiple platforms. Unlike other alternatives, Good’s approach does not require additional investment in costly VPN hardware and related support, but employs an architecture that is familiar and trusted by IT professionals.

As an endorsement of the success of Good Technology over the last year in Europe, the company was recognized as the Best Mobile Security Product at the V3 Technology awards. This follows Solihull Council winning the Public Sector User Award for Security from Computer Weekly.
