SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Good Technology, the leader in secure mobility, today announced Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Good, bringing Good's market leading secure container and app-level security to Microsoft's CRM solution. Developed on the Good Dynamics® Secure Mobility Platform, the Good-secured version of Microsoft Dynamics CRM provides IT with app-level security controls necessary to protect customer and financial data within the Good secure mobile app container, allowing sales teams to utilize Dynamics CRM securely on corporate-owned or personal iPads. Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Good is now available for Microsoft Dynamics CRM and Good customers in the Good Marketplace and Apple App Store.
As organizations of all sizes continue to mobilize their workforces, sales teams are requesting mobile access to critical applications, as they look to shorten sales cycles, improve customer interactions, and drive competitive advantage. Since customer data is highly proprietary and often regulated, IT may be unwilling or unable to offer mobile CRM access without providing more stringent app-level security controls. Native device-level security and MDM alone are not enough to prevent data leakage via consumer apps, data sharing features and personal clouds. Good offers secure container technology that can protect data stored on the device, in transit and in use within multi-app workflows.
"We are pleased that the Dynamics CRM tablet app can now be securely managed through Good Technology with a solution that provides a secure container for local data, secure data tunnel, and also manages secure email and web links from the Dynamics CRM tablet app," said Bob Stutz, corporate vice president, Microsoft Dynamics CRM. "This is welcome news for our customers who will now be able to enforce central policy management such as device wipe and password management as well as enable employees to access the rich capabilities of the Dynamics CRM tablet app while enforcing corporate policies for customer data."
When using Dynamics CRM for Good, contact email links invoke secure email in Good Work™, keeping customer data under IT control and out of personal email apps. Similarly, Web links open into the Good Access™ secure browser so connectivity is secured and all browser data is cached and protected. Any Good-secured ISV or custom app maintains encryption of data shared from Dynamics CRM so data stays protected and under IT control.
"Enterprise sales teams need secure access to customer information while on the move," said Christy Wyatt, chairman and CEO of Good Technology. "Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Good puts key customer relationship tools at their fingertips without sacrificing the security of proprietary information, ensuring sales teams can be just as effective while mobile as they are in the office."
Good Dynamics® enables enterprise developers and ISVs to easily add advanced mobile security capabilities to their offerings, including app-level encryption, access control, data loss prevention, and identity and access management, allowing them to support security across multi-app business workflows. Over 1,600 custom and third-party apps have been built on the Good Dynamics Platform by Good customers and ISV partners.
"As organizations move beyond MDM to mobile apps that drive productivity, CRM apps are in demand by sales organizations," said John Jackson, program vice president for mobility research at IDC. "However, customer data is often subject to regulation or at the very least is highly sensitive. Priority one for IT is having the requisite security in place to protect data on the device and from leaking to personal accounts or clouds. The combination of Microsoft Dynamics CRM with the Good container addresses the needs of both sales and IT, and delivers a high value integration for enterprises wanting to accelerate CRM deployments to mobile devices."

For accounts new to Good Dynamics, the required servers are available for download or via free cloud trial on the Good Developer Network.
