Allows businesses to leverage the power of personal devices without risking corporate data loss
SAN DIEGO, Oct. 19, 2011 — As more employees use their personal smartphones and tablets to access business applications(*), companies need to take steps to ensure the security of their corporate data. Today, Nukona offers enterprise IT the simplest way to secure, deploy and manage corporate apps on both company-owned and employee-owned mobile devices, across the enterprise.
“The dynamics of how and where people use their mobile devices are changing significantly, especially as we move to an app-centric world,” said Chris Perret, Nukona co-founder and CEO. “IT managers must have the flexibility to quickly and easily add, manage and secure business applications and policies in order to enhance employee productivity and reduce costs.”
Nukona App Center basically “wraps the app” with a management layer that allows IT to apply security policies without any changes to the app. It is the only solution currently available that separates corporate policies from application logic and data. Nukona uniquely enables IT administrators to apply policy without requiring changes to the apps – reducing time and expense to managing the growing BYOD trend.
There are two main components of the Nukona mobile application management solution. The Enterprise App Store is used for deployment and management of apps. The Policy Management Engine enables IT to apply policies to any app before it is deployed in its own app container, or wrapper. The types of policy that can be applied include adding user authentication and enforcing encryption. Nukona’s secure app containers can also be configured to prevent other common forms of data leakage.
Importantly for larger enterprises, Nukona’s solution works at scale - policies can be applied and updated automatically across hundreds of apps for thousands of users.
“Employees are buying their favorite devices and want to find a way to use them for work,” Perret said. “Nukona App Center gives IT a comprehensive but easy-to-use solution that delivers a great end-user experience.”
