SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Good Technology, the leader in secure mobility, today announced that Gartner has listed the Good Dynamics® Secure Mobility Platform in its Market Guide for Cloud Mobile Back-End Services. Good Dynamics is the first enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution to provide comprehensive app, data security and identity services for simplified, secure back-end app development.
"Mobile back end as a service has become a critical component of enterprise mobility," said Richard Marshall, Research Director et al, at Gartner in the analyst firm's first ever Market Guide for Cloud Mobile Back-End Services1. The 2015 report named Good Technology as a Representative Vendor in the mBaaS market.
While many organizations are looking to transition to a mobile-based business model, there is a growing backlog of unfilled requests for new custom business applications that can improve productivity and competitive edge, due to the scarcity of qualified developers and the complexity of integration with back-end systems. The Good Developer Network, an online resource center that serves over 13,000 Good Dynamics developers, is now refreshed with significant new content including downloads, sample apps, reference documentation and support links, making it even easier for enterprise developers to create their own secure mobile apps.
"Enterprise mobility management is no longer just about managing apps, devices and infrastructure. It's about managing the entire mobility lifecycle," said Christy Wyatt, chairman and CEO of Good Technology. "The vast majority of applications running on the Good Dynamics Platform have been custom-developed in-house by our customers – it's key for businesses who are making mobile their primary computing platform. By including MBaaS capabilities in our EMM solution, we're helping more of our customers accelerate to that next stage of enterprise mobility by reducing the need for developers to code all the security and back-end complexity, and instead focusing on delivering a world-class mobile experience."
MBaaS is a set of APIs and services that remove the need for developers to write complex server-side code when developing secure enterprise mobile applications. With the Good secure enterprise MBaaS, developers are provided with a rich repository of ready-to-use APIs and services that significantly reduce coding effort, including end-to-end data security, access to behind-the-firewall systems without a VPN, identity and access management services, High Availability/Disaster Recovery (HA/DR), and many more, all manageable from a central console.
Additionally, the Good Dynamics Platform supports all three mobile application delivery mechanisms (Web, Native and Hybrid), all major OS Platforms (iOS, Android, Android Wear and Windows) and all major development frameworks (such as Adobe PhoneGap, IBM Worklight, X-Code, Android Studio and Visual Studio), further minimizing developer learning curve and boosting productivity.
