(PRWEB) January 30, 2014
(BYOD) policy management, announced a strategic alliance for the provision of Excitor’s comprehensive Secure Container for mobile devices, Excitor DME, together with SOTI’s leading enterprise mobility management solution, SOTI MobiControl. Together, the solutions provide a comprehensive suite of solutions for Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM), including Containerisation.
Excitor pioneered the separation of corporate data and personal data on mobile devices and has provided secure containerised mobile email, calendar, contacts and other PIM data since 2005. Excitor subsequently added secure mobilisation of applications,files, and document editing to the container. Excitor DME includes a secure HTML5 runtime platform for HTML5 applications, which makes single sign-on access to multiple corporate applications and mail in the DME container simple and secure.
The addition of SOTI MobiControl to the portfolio enables Excitor to provide more extensive device management features and to distribute and manage non-HTML5 applications.MobiControl enables organisations to centrally manage, support, secure and track corporate-liable and employee-liable mobile devices, regardless of device type, mobile platform and location.
Excitor and SOTI share common goals in delivering a comprehensive solution for devices with mixed personal and corporate use, regardless of whether the device is corporately or personally owned. Companies need to ensure productivity and user satisfaction by enabling personal use of a device without compromising security. Both organisations are also committed to multi-platform support, giving users the freedom of device choice.
SOTI has traditionally operated in environments where strong device control has been required with the ability to distribute and manage a wide variety of business applications.Excitor has held a strong position in the mobile security market, predominantly in finance and government, where security and prevention of data leakage has been paramount.The companies together deliver comprehensive solutions for both HTML5 and native applications across multiple platforms including Android, iOS, and on Windows Phone 8 devices.
Commenting on the announcement, Rene Stockner, CEO of Excitor, stated, “Our focus for some time has been the delivery of a flexible, secure platform for the management of email, files, applications and intranet access. We will continue to develop DME to ensure that it remains ahead of the game. SOTI is extremely strong in the enterprise mobility management, BYOD and mobile application management environments, and we look forward to a very positive and collaborative relationship.”
Carl Rodriguez, CEO of SOTI, stated, “SOTI MobiControl delivers an unparalleled enterprise mobility and BYOD management tool with advanced functionality for application management to protect corporate data on mobile devices. Our partnership with Excitor provides global organisations with a comprehensive mobility management solution that solves IT challenges of managing BYOD where corporate and personal applications and data commingle on mobile devices. With Excitor, we can jointly make strides towards our shared goals of providing a complete solution for devices used in dual persona scenarios for both corporate and personal use.”
