SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RSA CONFERENCE - Mocana, the app security leader, today introduced the Mocana MAP Developers Program to help mobile app developers quickly meet best-in-class security requirements for enterprise customers. The program lets developers “test-wrap” their apps with Mocana’s Mobile App Protection™ (MAP) for free to prepare their apps for more security-conscious enterprise and government customers. After testing, developers can display a MAP-READY logo to let prospective customers know they can easily custom-secure those apps with Mocana MAP.
“Whether an app is built in-house, by a contractor or by a dedicated third-party ISV, most mobile application developers don’t have the resources, time or crypto expertise to custom-secure their app for each enterprise customer. But most enterprise customers demand just that,” said Kurt Stammberger, CISSP and vice president of market development at Mocana. “MAP lets developers focus on creating amazing apps while satisfying enterprise security requirements, especially in BYOD contexts.”
The MAP Developers Program (www.mocana.com/mdp) provides mobile developers with free access to the new MAP Testing Workbench™, an online self-certification service that allows them to test-wrap their apps with Mocana security. The MAP Testing Workbench helps developers reduce their security engineering costs while simultaneously opening up new enterprise markets for their apps. Free support from Mocana is available to help developers through the testing process.
The program also offers developers’ marketing colleagues a variety of opportunities to co-market with Mocana, including joint webinars, speaking slots at the Amphion Forum, joint promotions and more.
According to Stammberger, enterprises using MAP can customize apps they deploy with fine-grained security policies in seconds. Strong authentication, FIPS 140-2 data-at-rest encryption and per-app VPNs are just a few of the options available. Mocana MAP can apply new security features to almost any Android™ or iOS app.
Ron Goins, chief operating officer at NitroDesk, said, “We are excited to offer the Mocana MAP solution as an integrated part of TouchDown for Government Agencies. Making TouchDown Exchange™ MAP-READY gives decision makers the ability to adapt their applications on the fly, so that as roles change within the enterprise, security concerns can be addressed almost instantly. The MAP wrapping process is so fast there is no longer a barrier to deployment.”
With more than 2 million users, TouchDown is the leading ActiveSync email solution for securing corporate email on mobile devices.
“Working collaboratively with Mocana allows us to deliver a secure and intuitive mobile web browser for the enterprise,” said Yongzhi Yang, CEO at Dolphin, maker of the world’s most popular third-party mobile browser. “Making Dolphin for Business MAP-READY will provide corporate users with the option to secure access to both the Web and corporate networks, while also providing data-at-rest encryption.”
“Atimi knows all the issues in the enterprise space around applications and security, and we consider Mocana MAP to be the most elegant security solution for our clients,” said Scott Michaels, executive vice president, Atimi Software. “We are excited about the new MAP Developers Program, and honored to partner with Mocana to deliver secure, robust enterprise applications within the tight timelines that are prevalent in mobile.”
“The MAP Developers Program puts bigtincan in the perfect position to give our customers the next level of protection,” said Patrick Welch, president and COO of bigtincan. “Now, our customers are able to roll out our platform faster, while meeting the stringent security requirements of the government and financial sectors. Our aim is to improve enterprise productivity for the mobile workforce, and our partnership with Mocana allows us to do so with an added level of security for mobile devices.”
“Making Breezy MAP-READY was an easy decision for us, and we’re proud to be among the early adopters,” said Jared Hansen, CEO of Breezy, the leading secure mobile printing service. “The credibility of Mocana in security-sensitive markets opens up exciting new opportunities and accounts for Breezy.”
