SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Good Technology™, the leader in secure mobility, today announced rapid growth in the number of third-party partner apps being used by customers on the Good Dynamics® Secure Mobility Platform. Among the company's 100 largest1 customers, 62 percent have purchased "Sold by Good" Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Affiliate apps to extend their Good enterprise mobility management (EMM) deployments. The rapid adoption of ISV Affiliate apps support the latest app activation findings in the Good Technology Q1 2015 Good Mobility Index Report, which shows that businesses of all sizes and in all industries continue to aggressively mobilize their apps and content.
Many Good Technology customers are purchasing ISV Affiliate apps that are sold by Good without requiring lengthy new vendor approval processes or contract negotiations. Among the 100 largest Good customers, 62 percent are using ISV Affiliate apps purchased from Good while 46 percent are using three or more and 28 percent are using five or more. Furthermore, 47 percent of the company's largest 500 customers are using ISV apps purchased from Good, 32 percent are using three or more and 17 percent are using five or more.
"Many of our customers have moved beyond the BYOD stage of their mobile journeys and are actively deploying Good-secured ISV apps to mobilize critical workflows," said Matt Sturges, vice president of Good Dynamics at Good Technology. "Using off-the-shelf apps developed by third-party ISVs and secured by Good can enable them to more quickly transform the way they do business without building every app themselves. This allows them to focus development resources on apps that are extending their core competencies and are strategic to the business."
Good ISV Affiliate partners can quickly scale their enterprise businesses by leveraging Good channel partners and the company's sales force without having to build out a large, global sales infrastructure themselves. "Sold by Good" apps enable ISVs to leverage Good's 6,200 public and private sector customers, which eases the burden on purchasing and legal teams when adding new vendors to approved vendors lists, which can slow down high demand app projects.

"We've been able to expand our sales pipeline quickly and with minimal effort, as CIOs enable their workforces with expanded productivity offerings including secure note taking and task management."
"Being a Good affiliate partner maximizes the exposure of iAnnotate for Good to companies that are looking for the ability to securely view, annotate and share documents among sales teams, knowledge workers and other employees," said Ravi Bhatt, CEO at Branchfire. "The 'Sold by Good' opportunity allows our business to scale and grow with the leader in secure mobility."
"Faced with tough compliance requirements, the Financial Services industry is challenged with how to deploy a secure, traceable, archivable mobile strategy that enables employees, drives business and protects privacy," said Sean Moshir, CEO at CellTrust. "Whether a financial organization has a bring-your-own-device, corporate liable or mixed mobile strategy, Good and its ISV Affiliate partners can help meet the regulatory and compliance needs of the organization."
"Having Polaris Office be 'Sold by Good' incents Good's sales force to partner with InfraWare sales, creating a greater amount of larger sized opportunities and providing a greater number of opportunities to grow our business than other EMM vendor partner programs," said Kyungnam Kim, executive vice president of InfraWare.
With growing demand for enterprise grade apps to build out high value mobile workflows, Good customers can easily find and quickly trial over 100 Good-secured apps from ISVs in the Good Marketplace.
