PHILADELPHIA, April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Fiberlink®, the leader in cloud-based enterprise mobility management (EMM), today announced significant innovations to its MaaS360 platform.  MaaS360 Secure Productivity Suite allows companies to tap into the transformative business value of mobile apps by allowing employees to securely access a rich set of corporate data while preserving the user experience on their personal devices. 

MaaS360 Secure Productivity Suite is a complete mobile security and productivity solution that provides deeper levels of policy management and strong data protection for the enterprise.  Through a Trusted WorkPlace environment on smartphones and tablets, MaaS360 delivers a dual persona approach to separate corporate and personal information on the same device.  From a single, unified platform, IT teams can now implement a flexible range of mobile security options across different categories of users, devices, content, and apps, all within the context of their business.

"Boosting productivity and mitigating risks are top priorities for our customers. The daily dose for IT today is providing secure access to corporate email, apps, and documents on mobile devices they do not own," said Christopher Clark, president and COO, Fiberlink.  "As mobile strategies evolve to focus on protecting sensitive data and solving privacy issues on personal devices, containerization is a natural complement to our MaaS360 mobile device management capabilities."

MaaS360 Secure Productivity Suite overcomes several significant customer concerns often missed by other solutions in the market.  With MaaS360, businesses can leverage existing infrastructure investments, without having to install and manage new on-site appliances that intercept all company email.  This approach delivers the fastest time to trust, while eliminating scaling issues and the risk of email outages that can impact employee productivity.  Further, MaaS360 provides comprehensive data leak prevention (DLP) features to control the movement of both email attachments and text, as well as offline security.  Solutions that only provide email attachment protection are only solving half of the problem.
