SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Good Technology™, the leader in secure mobility, today announced the company's portfolio of secure mobility solutions has been tailored for state and local governments and educational institutions. These organizations can now securely manage sensitive data accessed and stored on mobile devices through special product bundles and subscription pricing available through the company's two strategic distribution partners, Tech Data and Carahsoft.
Elected officials, educators and their staffs need access to highly sensitive information on mobile devices, but are also dealing with decreased budgets to support new IT initiatives. To address fiscal concerns and provide greater flexibility, Good introduced subscription licensing last year, empowering more organizations to take advantage of Good's secure mobility solution.
As government organizations continue to adopt the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend that started in the commercial work place, Good is able to safeguard sensitive data through its secure containers. This approach, pioneered by Good, enables IT to provide mobile access to secure information, while leaving employees' personal apps and information alone. Therefore, if an employee leaves a position or a smartphone or tablet is lost or stolen, IT can simply wipe the container clean, leaving the rest of the personal data on the device untouched.
"In listening to the feedback from our public sector customers, we wanted to offer a more specific solution to address their collaboration and mobility needs at the right price due to strict budgetary requirements," said Eric Rivas, Director of US State and Local Government for Good Technology. "These new product and subscription offerings available through our two top tier distribution partners will give our public sector customers more freedom to use the device of their choice, while not compromising on data security."
Good's secure mobility portfolio includes Good for Enterprise®, the Good Collaboration Suite™ and the Good Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform®. Good for Enterprise includes secure email, calendar information, contacts, browser access, and management of data and devices – all designed to enable access to highly confidential information and increase user productivity, while still respecting public services employees' privacy. The Good Collaboration Suite includes Good for Enterprise as well as Good Share™, Good Connect™ and Good Access™, enabling secure access to instant messaging, browsing and document sharing through Good's secure containers.
Good for Enterprise is the only cross-platform mobile messaging solution for iOS and Android to achieve Common Criteria EAL4+ certification, in addition to government grade (FIPS validated) encryption of data at rest, in transit, and in use. Additionally, with Good's Mobile Service Management, state and local IT organizations can decrease the time required by the IT staff to support employee-owned mobile devices, further lowering operational costs.
These special product and subscription offers are available through Tech Data and Carahsoft, leading IT solutions distributors supporting the state, local, and education space. Tech Data Corporation, one of the world's largest distributors of IT products and services, supports the technology needs of end users of all sizes, including large enterprises, educational institutions and government agencies. Carahsoft Technology Corp. is a top-ranked GSA Schedule 70 holder and serves as the master government aggregator for the industry's leading software manufacturers, supporting an ecosystem of technology vendors, resellers and system integrators who serve the public sector market.
