Aug 07, 2013 | Sydney, Australia
$5 Offer Secures Data and Devices, Enables Day One Productivity across iOS, Android and Windows Phone Devices
Good Technology™, the leader in secure mobility, today announced new Good for Enterprise® (GFE) pricing, enabling more organisations to take advantage of the leading containerised secure mobility solution. Businesses of all sizes can securely manage data and devices, and accelerate day one employee productivity with secure email, calendar information, contact details, document data and browser access for US$5 per user, per month. With this new offer, Good® enhances its comprehensive end-to-end portfolio to provide solutions ranging from entry level containerised application suites to a secure mobility platform enabling business transformation.
“The new Good for Enterprise per user subscription model provides greater commercial flexibility to expand the use of mobile solutions and productivity tools across our business,” said Ricky Higgins, chief information officer of GAM, an independent, active investment manager, delivering investment solutions to institutions, intermediaries, private clients and charities from offices in financial centres around the world. “Based on Good’s market-leading security platform, we can now give choice of new mobile devices and applications to a wider group of users than before.”
Organisations of all sizes are looking for simple and secure solutions that support multiple operating systems and that will secure corporate data, not just manage devices. Good for Enterprise is a cross-platform solution that works across iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices, enabling organisations to deliver a mobile collaboration business experience with secure containerisation to protect the sensitive data and corporate IP that IT demands. GFE leverages the same secure mobility architecture offered across the company’s complete product line, including Good Dynamics® – a secure mobility platform enabling enterprises to develop their own secure solutions, or procure mobility solutions from the large and growing Good Dynamics Ecosystem. The complete Good portfolio enables CIO’s to invest today and extend their architecture as their mobility needs grow across multiple user bases and application models.
“This is another market leading move by Good Technology to license Good for Enterprise on a per user per year basis,” said Garry Lengthorn, director of IT at Sthree, a FTSE listed British-based international staffing business providing permanent and contract specialist recruitment services. “This will provide me with industry-leading security and the flexibility to drive BYOD deeper into my organisation and derive even greater productivity levels than we do today."
Earlier this year, Gartner recognised Good in the Leader’s Quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for Mobile Device Management Software” report for the third year in a row.1 Good offers an industry-leading secure containerisation approach, providing customers with complete end-to-end data security – from behind the firewall, across networks, out to the device, and between apps – giving IT the tools they need to protect and manage against data loss and theft, while enforcing policy compliance.
“Adoption of a true mobile strategy means customers need the most secure foundation possible,” said Christy Wyatt, CEO of Good Technology. “Enterprises today need a scalable, reliable and affordable solution that empowers their employees with a productivity suite, and that is extensible over time as their mobility strategy matures and evolves. With this Good for Enterprise offer, enterprises can simply take advantage of the same proven secure mobility solution trusted by the worlds leading banks, federal agencies and Global 2000 customers, and realise global productivity for their users.”
The GFE offers are available now with a special promotion available through December 31, 2013. The per user, per month price is based on an annual subscription license. For more information visit: www.good.com/gfenow.
