Good Technology's Enterprise Mobile Application Management Software To Help IT, Employees Find Apps
Enterprise mobility and security software company Good Technology has announced new products in its line of enterprise mobility management software that will streamline the process for enterprises to create app stores. App stores managed by the enterprise are sought after by IT that are looking for ways to "white-list" applications, and it also serves as a fast way to ensure that company employees can easily find pertinent mobile applications.
Enterprise Mobile Management (EMM) used to mean that the devices that were provided by the company met the security standards of the organization. As the consumer-led bring your own device (BYOD) support models made their way into organizations, management of those devices expanded. Corporate IT needed to do more than just be prepared to remote wipe a device if stolen; they needed to be able to elevate and recommend applications that are required for their employees.
Maribel Lopez, principal and founder of Lopez Research, described the evolution of mobile support from a device-centric approach. "For organizations to maintain success with enterprise mobility, they need to move beyond managing devices and consider how to effectively develop, distribute, and manage content, apps and access."
Mobile Application Management (MAM) is where Good Technology is taking its EMM solutions. The Good Management Suite already provides application management, device management and secure access to company intranet and web sites. Its newest platform, Good Launcher, puts one-click access to an enterprise app as a feature in its entire product line.
"Apps drive mobile business transformation, and a fully integrated enterprise mobility management platform that is tailored to both users' and IT's needs is critical for adoption," said John Herrema, senior vice president of product management at Good Technology. "With this next generation enterprise app store, Good is making the process of finding, accessing and managing mobile apps easier for both users and IT."
Good Technology was established in 1996 in Sunnyvale, California. Its mobile management software is used by more than 50 of the Fortune 100 companies. For more information or to start a trial of the software, visit www.good.com.
