SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Expanding its presence in Japan, Mocana, the leader in app and Android security, today announced it has signed an agreement with Tokyo-based SCSK Corporation (TSE: SCSK) to resell Mocana Mobile App Protection™ (MAP) software in the Japanese market, beginning February 1. The agreement will enable SCSK to empower Japanese enterprises to better exploit the BYOD trend, and help large organizations deploy more transformative apps, faster, to their stakeholders.
“We are pleased to enlist SCSK to bring the benefits of our Mobile App Protection solution to the Japanese market, and look forward to building our relationship with this important new partner,” said Kurt Stammberger, CISSP, Vice President of Market Development for Mocana. “The proliferation of mobile devices in Japan has created an exciting opportunity for Mocana MAP.”
Mobility is redefining the Japanese enterprise and creating new opportunities for companies to gain competitive advantage and transform business processes. Unfortunately, certifying that these new applications and platforms meet existing enterprise security and compliance standards is difficult and slow. Mocana MAP is the answer. MAP’s app- wrapping technology enables enterprises and developers to quickly secure applications without writing any code, simplifying large-scale app deployments in today’s complex and expanding multi-platform BYOD environments. MAP offers market-critical security features to protect company information such as per-application VPN capabilities and FIPS 140-2 encryption, both on iOS or Android. The result is a Self-Defending App™ that provides data protection and IT control for enterprise apps on both managed and unmanaged devices.
“Mocana MAP is an important addition to our IT product portfolio, providing us with an elegant solution to offer our customers who more frequently have to contend with this complex problem,” said Hiro Sugisaka, General Manager, Network Technology Department, IT Products and Service Division, at SCSK Corporation. “We are excited by this opportunity, and feel confident that we will be able to be successful in this growing market with the Mocana MAP solution.”
