Modo Labs™, the leading on-demand Mobile Engagement Platform provider, and AirWatch®, the largest Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) provider, today announced a partnership to deliver advanced security for mobile devices and apps in higher education. Hundreds of universities in more than 30 countries use solutions from Modo Labs to deliver rich mobile websites and native apps, and AirWatch is a leader in secure mobile device, application, content, laptop and browser management.

The joint solution addresses needs created by the exponentially increasing growth of mobile on college campuses. Studies show that 73% of students now demand campus-specific mobile applications, including access to student information systems with very sensitive information. Through the partnership, universities using Modo Labs technology will gain an additional layer of security for their mobile apps to prevent loss of this information. The schools will also benefit from another channel for deploying apps through AirWatch’s highly renowned Mobile Application Management (MAM) solution. For AirWatch customers, the partnership provides seamless access to the powerful Kurogo platform and easy-to-use Kurogo Publisher to create and maintain apps.

“Our partnership with Modo Labs extends our market presence in education and delivers greater value to customers,” said Preston Winn, director of education solutions, AirWatch. “AirWatch and Modo Labs are advancing mobile technologies, and our joint offering will help universities deliver greater mobility tools to their students, faculty and staff."

Prior to the partnership, many universities discovered the value of combining solutions from Modo Labs and AirWatch. Leading schools such as Princeton University, Johns Hopkins University and many others already benefit from the ideal app development, security and management solution created by utilizing mobile technologies from Modo Labs and AirWatch. Each company has also been recognized as mobile leaders by AT&T with significant partnerships deals.

“Students are demanding campus-specific mobile applications, and mobile has become a must-have for universities to remain competitive. Together, Modo Labs and AirWatch provide an end-to-end solution for the full mobile app lifecycle from development through deployment with world-class security,” said Andrew Yu, CTO and founder of Modo Labs.

The solution from Modo Labs and AirWatch was announced today at the EDUCAUSE Annual Conference, the leading event for higher education IT leaders. Modo Labs is providing demonstrations of the solution in booth #470-472 and AirWatch is exhibiting in booth #751 in the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, Calif., from October 16-17.
