SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Good Technology, the leading provider of secure, managed enterprise mobility for a range of mobile devices, today announced the use of the Good for Enterprise™ solution on Lumia devices. Lumia devices running the Windows Phone 7.5 "Mango" operating system will interoperate with Good's FIPS-certified 192 bit AES encryption and end-to-end mobile messaging, to provide business customers with secure access to corporate data using Good for Enterprise.
"At Good Technology we're committed to enabling secure delivery of business applications to a broad range of devices because enterprise mobility is becoming more varied, particularly with so many new consumer devices and the move towards the 'Bring Your Own Device' model within the enterprise," said Susan Vinci-Lucero, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Good Technology. "We're excited to partner with Nokia, the world's number one maker of mobile phones, to expand the reach of our mobile security platform to include Windows Phone-based mobile devices and enable our customers with even more choice."
Leveraging the Good for Enterprise solution, enterprises will be able to support employee use of Lumia smartphones with the confidence in knowing that corporate data will be secure—making it a win-win scenario for both IT leaders and information workers. Employees will be able to access corporate email, contacts, and calendars through the Good for Enterprise application on their Nokia Windows Phone smartphones—just as they access Microsoft Outlook® or Lotus Notes® on desktop computers at the office—using the intuitive user interface with panorama and pivot views with which they are already be familiar. IT managers will be able to protect corporate data with data encryption and easy-to-apply policies, such as requiring passwords and preventing 'cut/copy/paste' capabilities from the Good for Enterprise app. They will also be able to establish role-based policies using web-based management tools and perform remote wipe of enterprise information only, leaving music, photos, and other personal data present elsewhere on an employee's mobile device intact in the event the mobile device is compromised, lost or stolen.
"The consumerization of IT shows that when it comes to enterprise mobility, the decision is increasingly resting in the consumer's hands. Customers like the design and features of our phones and we know they want to use them both in their personal and professional lives," said Purnima Kochikar, VP Business Mobility, Nokia. "We also understand that when it comes to protecting corporate information, end-to-end security is fundamental. We're thrilled to be working with a mobile security leader like Good Technology to help optimize the Lumia range for business use."
The Good for Enterprise solution, leveraging the Windows Phone 7.5 "Mango" operating system on Lumia devices, is targeted for commercial availability in early Q2 2012. Nokia and Good will show the solution at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in the Nokia Booth from February 27th to March 1st 2012.
