SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Good Technology™, the leader in secure mobility, today announced that Security Products Magazine has named Good Vault™ as the Platinum winner in the mobile security apps category for the 2013 Govies Government Security Awards. The Govies Government Security Awards honor outstanding products for federal, state, tribal and local governments across a variety of categories critical to government security professionals and their partners in the private sector.
"More stringent compliance regulations, increasing cyber-attacks and changes in the digital workplace are driving the need for increased use of IAM technologies. In order to protect enterprise data, you must first understand the identity of the parties who are granted access to that data," said Nicko van Someren, chief technology officer at Good Technology. "With Good Vault, government entities and security conscious organizations can effectively address escalating mobile security threats and regulations without compromising the mobile form factor or user experience."
Leveraging mobile identity and access management services of Good Trust™, Good Vault delivers enhanced two-factor authentication, e-mail signing and encryption. Enterprise IT managers utilize Good Vault in conjunction with Good for Enterprise™ to extend security checkpoints, ensuring that user identities, access permissions and business related communications are safe and secure. As a result, mobile workforces across the government, healthcare and financial services industries can enable information to travel freely, enabling increased employee collaboration, productivity and effectiveness.
"The Govies are a young product awards contest considering all contests that are available, but this year's entries are mature products that fully make a difference in government security," said Ralph C. Jensen, editor-in-chief of Security Products Magazine and content director of GovSec. "The technology and experience that proliferates the security industry is both dynamic and an assured commitment on the part of the manufacturers to provide a more secure world."
Good Vault will be on display at booth #2529 at the annual GovSec Conference and Expo on May 14-15 in Washington, D.C. Conference attendees will hear from Eugene Liderman, director, public sector for the office of the CTO, at Good Technology, speak about the effect Bring-your-own-App (BYOA) is having on IT security during a session taking place on May 15 at 10:30 a.m. ET.
