Good Technology Brings Mobile Security To Microsoft Dynamics CRM
Good Technology and Microsoft have partnered to bring the security provided by the Good Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform to the Microsoft Dynamics Customer Relations Management (CRM) product. The new mobile release protects customer and financial data using the Good Dynamics secure mobile app container. The mobile version of the MS Dynamics CRM supports both corporate or bring your own device (BYOD) scenarios.
"We are pleased that the Dynamics CRM tablet app can now be securely managed through Good Technology with a solution that provides a secure container for local data, secure data tunnel, and also manages secure email and web links from the Dynamics CRM tablet app," said Bob Stutz, corporate vice president, Microsoft Dynamics CRM. "This is welcome news for our customers who will now be able to enforce central policy management such as device wipe and password management as well as enable employees to access the rich capabilities of the Dynamics CRM tablet app while enforcing corporate policies for customer data."
Dynamics CRM running on the Good secure platform enforces network security for emails, invoking the secure email functionality provided in the Good Work platform. Web links open into the Good Access secure browser protecting and caching all browser data. Encryption is maintained for Good-secured ISV or custom apps, maintaining IT control of all data.
"As organizations move beyond MDM to mobile apps that drive productivity, CRM apps are in demand by sales organizations," said John Jackson, program vice president for mobility research at IDC. "However, customer data is often subject to regulation or at the very least is highly sensitive. Priority one for IT is having the requisite security in place to protect data on the device and from leaking to personal accounts or clouds. The combination of Microsoft Dynamics CRM with the Good container addresses the needs of both sales and IT, and delivers a high value integration for enterprises wanting to accelerate CRM deployments to mobile devices."
Good Dynamics allows software developers to bring advanced mobile security to apps with access controls, app-level security, data loss prevention and more. The Good ecosystem of apps and partner ISVs can be found at community.good.com.
