Box Adds Secure Mobile Collaboration to MobileIron AppConnect Ecosystem New Integration Offers Data Loss Prevention and Enhanced Controls to Meet Strict IT Policies for Mobile Devices
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As mobile becomes a primary computing platform, companies want to make employees productive using mobile apps and devices while making sure that enterprise data is secure. With the addition of Box to the MobileIron AppConnect ecosystem, businesses can now provide employees with secure content sharing and collaboration across mobile devices. Employees can safely access content from their personal mobile device in a secure, encrypted container. Mobile IT can protect app data-at-rest and data-in-motion and control the flow of content out of Box. The new integration also allows Mobile IT to revoke access to Box immediately if an employee leaves the company or if the mobile device falls out of compliance with the organization's security policies.
MobileIron, the leader in security and management for mobile apps, documents, and devices, provides its AppConnect technology to third party mobile app developers. With MobileIron AppConnect apps, companies can give their employees the best third-party application experiences with apps that have been enabled with auto-configuration, data containerization, and secure tunneling to protect corporate data.
"As our customers become Mobile First organizations, they need to give employees a lot more than mobile email," said Ojas Rege, VP Strategy, MobileIron. "Content is the lifeblood of an organization and needs to be delivered securely to mobile devices. With Box joining the AppConnect ecosystem, mobile and cloud collaboration can now truly intersect without compromising enterprise security or user experience."
Box for MobileIron AppConnect ensures that:
- There is no need for any set up by the end-user.
- Employees can collaborate with both internal colleagues as well as people outside their organization, sharing content easily with a link, commenting on files, and assigning tasks to colleagues.
- Mobile IT can containerize the content that flows between Box and other productivity apps in a secure and controlled app environment.
- Enforce Data Loss Prevention policies, remote wipe, and access permissions by keeping Box and other apps centrally managed through MobileIron.
"Today's CIOs face significant BYOD security challenges as more workers begin to rely heavily on multiple mobile devices on a variety of mobile platforms to access, edit and share their content internally and externally," said Whitney Bouck, Enterprise General Manager, Box. "The combination of Box and MobileIron gives IT administrators a powerful set of tools for secure mobile content management that aligns with our customers' policies and industry standards."
