Leading Mobile Application Management (MAM) solution provider App47 has teamed with mobile security experts SpydrSafe Mobile Security, Inc. to add secure control to data exchange between enterprise mobile apps – a critical component of the MAM lifecycle. With security becoming paramount as organizations embrace mobility and contend with the realities of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and Corporate Owned Personally Enabled (COPE), the partnership is giving App47’s already sought-after MAM solution a level of security capabilities that far surpass existing Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solutions in the market today.
“For the past two years, we’ve seen our MAM-driven approach to mobility gain real traction in the enterprise,” said App47 CEO Chris Schroeder. “Our continuing commitment is to the entire MAM lifecycle, which constitutes deployment, configuration, monitoring, management, and – as evidenced by our partnering with SpydrSafe -- security.” Schroeder added that SpydrSafe addresses the very real concerns of data leakage from enterprise mobile apps, as well as data sharing from protected to non-protected mobile apps. This means data can be moved between apps themselves with the reassurance that it remains protected and within organizational control.
Adding detail to Schroeder’s explanation, SpydrSafe CEO Michael Pratt explained that SpydrSafe can both whitelist and blacklist apps on devices; this means, respectively, the ability to either specify which apps are allowed to run on a device, or the power to prevent certain apps from launching on a device in the first place.
“Our solution took shape in light of identifying industries where data needed to remain secure, but where controlled sharing would also be critical to productivity and performance,” Pratt said. He cited healthcare, financial services, and education as industries already expressing interest in that capability. “We recognized immediately how this could really reinforce the security capability of App47’s MAM solution. App47, in turn, refines the ability of our solution to help manage mobile apps and how they communicate device to device. The synergy was obvious.”
Reiterating the security imperative, Schroeder noted that the App47-SpydrSafe partnership is indicative of an understanding that mobile app security is paramount for the enterprise. “We have a similar partnership with Fixmo,” he said. ”They specialize in mobile security and risk management at the device level, addressing data at rest and data in transit. In SpydrSafe, we can add reassurance to how apps talk to each other and share data. It helps App47 create a more complete mobile app security offering.”
