Jun 03, 2014 | New York and Sunnyvale, CA
Additions to Good-secured ecosystem deliver more innovation and extended mobile security capabilities
Good Technology™, the leader in secure mobility, today announced new additions to the company’s extensive and diverse ecosystem of Good-secured independent software vendors (ISVs) and partners, extending the capabilities of the Good Secure Mobility Solution. Good has the most comprehensive ecosystem of partners across the industry, with over 1200 unique custom and third party apps developed on the Good Dynamics® Secure Mobility Platform. The new Good-secured partners are enabling joint customers to enhance collaboration with more sophisticated secure app-to-app workflows and leverage additional mobile security features to protect their data.
Earlier this year, Good announced the Good Dynamics Shared Services Framework now supports server-based services, and the company’s just-announced mobile presence is the first server-based shared service that developers and ecosystem partners can now take advantage of.
Good continues to build out its diverse ecosystem of ISV apps that are leveraging the Good Dynamics platform to address specific needs for joint customers through secure mobile apps. New partners announced today include CellTrust, Code Red, Infraware Polaris Office and InterPro, delivering enhanced functionality ranging from secure SMS and secure research management access to more sophisticated document editing and collaboration.
In addition to introducing new mobile apps into the Good-secured ecosystem, Good is delivering extended app management capabilities with partners like AirPatrol Corporation. AirPatrol’s ZoneDefense is a mobile device security platform for wireless and cellular networks that can detect, monitor and manage the behavior of smartphones, tablets, laptops and other mobile devices based on their location. Good is also highlighting a partnership with Solstice-Mobile, a leading provider of enterprise innovation and mobility solutions, to provide joint customers with custom applications built on the Good Dynamics platform that leverage Good’s industry-leading security framework.
Good today also announced a new Trusted Authentication Framework, enabling select enterprise app developers and independent software vendors (ISVs) across the Good-secured ecosystem to easily leverage innovative multi-factor authentication methods. Early access Good Trusted Authenticator partners include Biometrics Associates, EyeVerify, Intercede, Mi-Token and Precise Biometrics.
In addition, the company announced Good for Salesforce1, a new app that brings together the world’s #1 CRM platform with the industry’s most widely-deployed secure mobility platform and container solution.
“We are committed to delivering constant innovation and additional functionality to our customers, and our diverse, comprehensive ecosystem of Good-secured partners plays a pivotal role in doing that,” said Matt Sturges, vice president of Good Dynamics ecosystem at Good Technology. “We are excited to welcome these innovative companies into our community and look forward to jointly enabling our customers to address critical needs through secure mobile apps.”
“We are excited to leverage the new mobile presence service to deliver a more seamless, efficient path for communication and collaboration between board members and senior executives, and their support teams,” said Martyn Chapman at ICSA Boardroom Apps. “BoardPad for Good users can now identify when other users are available online and engage in real-time, secure instant messaging that is protected with Good’s leading container technology and controlled through the Good Dynamics platform.”
“CellTrust SecureSMS® for Good provides highly regulated industries with traceability and archiving features to help close the eDiscovery gap for mobile communication,” said Sean Moshir, CEO of CellTrust. “As organizations are moving to a cross-platform mobile strategy, there is a requirement for secure, flexible solutions to protect and archive corporate communication on mobile devices. Our joint solution addresses this need.”
“Good has an extensive base of financial services customers that we are here to support with our mobile solution, which can more easily and securely facilitate research management,” said Tim Gavin, CEO of Code Red. “With the Code Red RMS for Good Technology app, our users can leverage the full set of research management functionality with the added benefit of their data being secured and managed using Good’s industry-leading security framework.”
“Document editing continues to be one of the greatest needs for employees, customers and partners who are using mobile devices to do business more efficiently,” said Min-cheol Kwak, CEO of Infraware. “Infraware Polaris Office for Good provides organizations with a mobile office solution that is highly compatible with Microsoft Office, offering ease-of-use in addition to a highly-secure editing environment.”
“AirPatrol’s ZoneDefense for Good allows systems administrators to create ‘hot zones’ that can change the features, apps and content available on a Good-enabled device when it enters that zone, which is particularly useful for organizations with R&D labs, boardrooms and sensitive areas with higher levels of security,” said Cleve Adams, CEO of AirPatrol. “In addition to the ability to automatically manage device security based on location, ZoneDefense gives systems and security personnel a more complete view of the mobile devices operating within their organizations, and ultimately more control over the information those devices are accessing.”
"The Good Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform offers us the flexibility to design and build differentiating custom mobile solutions for our customers, while leveraging the security and shared services of the Good ecosystem," said J Schwan, CEO of Solstice Mobile. "We've had great success building client-specific, game-changing mobile solutions for our highly regulated clients, by leveraging Good's security framework."
