LONDON, Oct. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Good Technology™, the leader in secure mobility, today announced the secure solution for web apps for Windows, as well as expansion of its enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution to Windows at the 2015 Good Exchange Cyber Security Summit. As the line between laptops and tablets blurs, particularly after the recent release of Windows 10, enterprises are looking to extend enterprise mobility management solutions across multiple platforms and on many types of devices. To more easily support their users, organizations are looking for a turnkey way to deploy both collaboration and web apps in a secure manner across a range of devices. To help meet these new IT demands, Good Work™, the company's leading secure email and collaboration application, and Good Access™, the company's secure browser, will support Windows 8.1 and later on both tablets and laptops.
"As the diversity of end-point computing platforms continues to increase, enterprise customers demand the ability to deploy and manage new devices rapidly with government grade security and scalability," said Christy Wyatt, chairman and CEO at Good Technology. "Good is enabling the next generation of application security and management for a new generation of Windows products, enabling end users to work on any device at any time with the same level of security and simplicity they experience on their mobile devices today."
Just as mobility has changed how business gets done, it has also led to a shifting landscape in terms of system management and access to corporate data. Rather than solely distributing corporate-managed laptops to short-term workers and contractors, many are looking to also implement Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) approaches for Windows laptops and tablets.
For example, the insurance industry employs hundreds of thousands of contractors in the field that may not have devices directly under IT management. To quickly and cost-effectively enable these individuals, organizations require an easy way to deploy a secure environment for business apps, especially collaboration apps and web apps, to personally-owned devices without the cost, complexity and poor user experience of legacy approaches like virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).
The Good suite of EMM solutions solves this need with an easily deployed, comprehensive set of secure collaboration apps that can be used on almost any platform including Android, Android Gear, iOS, Apple Watch and Windows. IT can distribute this contained environment without directly managing the device, and ensure only corporate data is removed when required, making it an ideal EMM solution for a wide range of industries.
To further enhance this solution, Good Access for Windows provides a secure environment for deployment of HTML5 apps. Good Access secures corporate web apps in containers, ensuring data never leaves enterprise control while providing a rich user experience including the first HTML5 offline access in a secure browser for Windows. IT can confidently enable access to a broad range of web apps and more quickly develop additional apps knowing that corporate data will be secure. The new environment provides a turnkey solution to securely and easily support users with a wide range of apps on devices the enterprise cannot or does not manage, whether they are laptops, tablets or smartphones.
"With Windows 10, Microsoft is smartly unifying its approach across various devices and form factors," said Nick McQuire, vice president, enterprise at CCS Insight. "By doing so, enterprise IT departments will need to carefully consider how to manage their full fleet of Windows devices in a manner similar to other mobile devices, regardless of the device format used by the employee or contractor."
Good Access for Windows is available in beta immediately. Good Work for Windows will be available in beta later this year.
