By - Source: Toms IT Pro

For large enterprises, using at least one type of a mobility management solution has become a necessity. Luckily, there are many vendors to choose from when it comes to managing mobile devices with new software and support options taking shape all the time. To add to these options, mobility management and security company Good Technology has released Good Work, a new enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution that can be used on-premises or in the cloud.

"As adoption of BYOD continues to explode, businesses of all sizes are looking for simpler, more manageable, more affordable and more secure solutions to address the complexity of dealing with hundreds -- if not thousands of device types and operating systems," says Christy Wyatt, chairman and CEO at Good Technology. 

Available for both iOS and Android devices, Good Work concentrates on ease-of-use and simple solutions for common actions. It includes Outlook integration for contacts, online colleague status indication and photo directory access, as well as the expected email and calendar capabilities.

The calendar also gives users the ability to schedule meetings, join meetings, or send canned responses to people in attendance. All of these actions have one-click options.

In terms of features, the one difference between iOS and Android versions is support for contextual file actions. Only Good Work on iOS has the ability to provide file management actions based on the other containerized apps on a user's mobile device.

All applications that fall under the Good Work EMM umbrella are containerized and include policies that can be set and managed, such as copy/paste restrictions and contact sharing. As for running Good Work, Good Technology allows customers to choose between hosting the solution on-premises or from the cloud.

"Good Work enables both large and mid-size businesses with an intuitive cloud-based solution, making it simple and affordable to harness the power of secure mobility to drive new business processes," says Wyatt.

Good Work comes as part of any Good Technology EMM suite. Available as four different packages, you can find a full list of feature differences and pricing on Good Technology's EMM page.
