Mocana Corporation, a company that focuses on securing non-PC smart connected devices, today announced that Good Technology has licensed Mocana's NanoCrypto™ cryptographic engine for use on supported mobile platforms, including iOS, Android, Symbian, Windows Mobile, and Palm webOS. Good Technology, whose solutions combine a great user experience with the tools that IT needs to manage and protect its mobile enterprise, will use NanoCrypto to protect mobile devices in sensitive business and government settings that involve rigorous FIPS (Federal Information Processing) and S/MIME standards for security.

Mocana NanoCrypto is a sophisticated, government-certified (FIPS 140-2 and Suite B compliant) cryptographic engine specifically built for smart device environments, of which smartphones is one category. Mocana's core cryptographic engine secures millions of devices - devices like smart phones, portable medical analyzers and even unmanned aerial vehicles -- from hundreds of technology manufacturers worldwide. It is one of the smallest, fastest and most comprehensive cryptographic cores on the market and is ideally suited to battery operated environments where security, performance and user experience are key. With out of the box support for over 30 operating systems and 70 CPU platforms, NanoCrypto is part of Mocana's Device Security Framework that provides "universal security client" software that enables device OEMs, ISVs and solution providers like Good to deploy cross-platform solutions with sophisticated cryptographic security features for almost any type of device or application.

NanoCrypto protects Good for Enterprise from increasingly sophisticated attacks directed specifically at non-PC smart devices devices.

Good Mobile Control features and functions include:

  •     Simplified Web-based management and policy configuration, including the ability to define password
  •     Signed and encrypted over-the-air (OTA) distribution of configuration profiles
  •     Profile installation verification and reporting

"Good's solutions are used in some of the most sensitive business and government settings, and incorporating NanoCrypto as their universal security client will cement their strong competitive position in these markets," said Adrian Turner, CEO of Mocana. "While malicious attacks against smart devices are rapidly increasing in sophistication and volume, there is also a proliferation of smart devices that are being bought into enterprises that includes not only phones but also tablets. Having a common way to secure these devices is fast becoming a business necessity - this is where Mocana can bridge the gap, and further underlines the technology leadership evident in our recent strategic partnership with Symantec and inclusion in the Norton Everywhere intiative."

"The portability of Mocana's NanoCrypto libraries to multiple handheld operating systems fits perfectly into Good's multi-device strategy, and Mocana's device-side expertise was invaluable to us" says Dimitri Volkmann, Vice President of Product Management, Good Technology. "Our customers expect the highest levels of security and control, and adding NanoCrypto reinforces Good's commitment to protecting enterprises' most sensitive data and applications on today's most popular devices and OSs, including iPhone OS and Android. Mocana helped us build the most efficient - and more importantly, most portable - client-side security code possible. It's a technically sophisticated solution that positions Good devices strategically for future security services delivered directly from the cloud."
