Toronto, ON (PRWEB) October 19, 2011
Avema Corporation, a global provider of telecom and wireless cost optimization services, is pleased to announce a new partnership with Echoworx, a leading provider of credential management and managed encryption services for complete email and data protection. Under the terms of the agreement, Avema will be adding Echoworx’ recently launched mobilEncrypt Endpoint solutions for mobile to its mobile device management (MDM) offerings.
According to Michael Ginsberg, Chief Executive Officer for Echoworx, “Mobile security has become a major focus as organizations try to secure the explosive growth of corporate information being accessed by mobile device users. To that end, email encryption and credential management for mobile have presented significant challenges for IT managers. mobilEncrypt ENDPOINT is the only solution that works natively with devices to deliver easy-to-use encryption and credential management capabilities. As a leader in providing MDM solution sets, Avema is the ideal partner for Echoworx as they are experts in creating offerings that close the mobile security ‘loopholes’ plaguing IT managers today.”
Roger Yang, Chief Executive Officer for Avema Corporation sees the Echoworx platform as a significant value-add for clients. “The classic problem for customers is the segmentation in mobile device usage, making it difficult to come up with a single MDM system that suits all user needs. Avema’s extensive technical expertise enables us to integrate best-of-breed technology to meet our clients’ business security needs. Echoworx is an excellent fit because its encryption application can be downloaded and activated without having to retrofit devices or go through complex setups; and organizations can easily restrict corporate access to authorized users only.”
With mobilEncrypt ENDPOINT, iPhone, iPad and BlackBerry users can compose, send, download and receive secure, encrypted messages through their existing business email account. No additional components are required, since the application creates a native email experience. IT managers can then centrally manage the infrastructure “over-the-air” and assign user credentials, as well as revoke or suspend them if a device gets lost or stolen. The solution is backed by a comprehensive public key infrastructure (PKI) credential management platform and globally recognized Certificate Authority. An Android version is scheduled for release this fall.
