LONDON, Dec. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Good Technology™, the leader in secure mobility, today announced that CESG, the UK Government's National Technical Authority for Information Assurance, has just released 'Security Guidance for Good Dynamics and Good for Enterprise'. This follows recent security awards, including Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 4 Augmented (EAL4+) certification in the USA, Australia and France. As of November 2013, only Good for Enterprise and Good Dynamics have received CESG Guidance for third party secure messaging and collaboration software residing on smartphones and tablets.
Building upon CESG's platform guidance, which was released on 14 October, the Guidance outlines a risk assessment for both Good for Enterprise and Good Dynamics. The Guidance document is a risk/mitigation assessment which, if followed, enables deployments to be made to the new Official Level. More information about the new classification policy is available from the Cabinet Office.
"This is great news for public sector organisations such as Central Government, Police, Local Authorities and the NHS who require information assurance and data leakage protection, as well as mobile device management," said Chris Roberts, vice president of public sector at Good Technology. "This Guidance is also a tremendous affirmation for Good Technology customers who value the security that the containerized approach to secure mobility offers."
With the Guidance for Good for Enterprise and Good Dynamics, in conjunction with CESG's 'native platform guidance,' UK public sector organisations are now able to leverage the Good Technology platform to build secure mobile solutions to the new Official level, which covers the vast majority of use cases in public services.
Leveraging a unique and innovative application containerisation model, Good for Enterprise allows organisations of all sizes to securely manage data and devices, and accelerate day one employee productivity with secure email, calendar information, contact details, document data and browser access.
Good Dynamics, Good's mobile application platform, makes building secure mobile apps faster, cheaper and easier to deploy and manage for iOS and Android devices. The platform also makes it easier to create and modify specific application policies, which helps augment and extend application security and management functionality.
