SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Good Technology™, the leader in secure mobility, today announced that North Hennepin Community College is using Good Enterprise Suite to provide its BYOD solution, enabling secure access to work emails, student assignments, strategic plans, and more and setting the stage for a new era in higher learning at the school.
North Hennepin Community College, part of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system, is one of the largest community colleges in the state with over 10,000 students and 500 employees. With faculty and administrators wanting to grade assignments and review documents from their personal devices, the college's IT department required a BYOD solution that protects student information and intellectual property, while separating work and personal data. Immediately after adopting Good Enterprise Suite, productivity increased among North Hennepin faculty since they could securely grade assignments anytime from anywhere.
"With so much back and forth between classrooms and meetings, higher education employees need the ability to work from their personal devices," said Kristine Boike, Dean of Academic and Technology Services, North Hennepin Community College. "In addition to providing top security and usability, our faculty is saving hours each week through Good's efficient workflows."
Good Enterprise Suite is a comprehensive enterprise mobility management (EMM) and BYOD solution offering complete mobile device management combined with day one business productivity. The suite includes advanced mobile device management (MDM); mobile application management (MAM); and Good for Enterprise®, a fast business-first productivity app that provides a user interface with business optimized features, including calendar reply and forwarding, availability information, one-tap conference dialing and secure browser integration. Good for Enterprise is the only cross-platform mobile collaboration solution for iOS and Android to achieve Common Criteria EAL4+ certification.
"As universities and learning institutions continue to transform education, mobility plays a key role in availability and having secure access to sensitive information from anywhere at any time," said Christy Wyatt, chairman and CEO at Good Technology. "North Hennepin Community College is setting a great example for how secure mobility solutions can make educators more efficient outside of the classroom."
Following the success of Good for Enterprise for North Hennepin's employees, the school is considering expanding its deployment to students. Students who don't own a laptop or tablet might be able to borrow an iPad for free or a nominal fee. Furthermore, Good Enterprise Suite makes it easy for IT teams to remotely wipe sensitive data from a device if it is lost or stolen, or prepare the device for the next student to use.
