SILVER SPRING, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Leading mobile security companies MobileSpaces and NitroDesk announced today a technology partnership to provide enterprises with a much more robust mobile security solution. By harnessing the power of iOS 7, the companies have integrated NitroDesk’s Touchdown application with the MobileSpaces workspace to remove the need and limitations of any proprietary SDK to secure mobile devices. In fact, IT admins can now fully automate the provisioning of corporate email with any other enterprise app by simply assigning NitroDesk’s Touchdown application, the leading Microsoft® Exchange ActiveSync® solution for securing corporate email on mobile devices, to any MobileSpaces workspace.
The release of iOS 7 simplifies how IT organizations secure and deploy apps on Apple devices, eliminating the need for proprietary app ecosystems that limit app choice. Now enterprises have a standard method for securing their apps in a native container, as well as a seamless way to configure those apps for work use, giving them the freedom to create custom business workflows.
By using Touchdown, IT now has the foundational app necessary to secure every employee while the MobileSpaces workspace will give them the flexibility to provide each employee with the additional apps they need for their job.
“Now users can utilize the most secure and feature-packed Exchange ActiveSync client in the world while using the management features provided by Apple - all without requiring additional hardware infrastructure. This is a huge win for cost-conscious IT departments,” said Ron Goins, COO of NitroDesk Inc.
MobileSpaces 2.0 combines Apple’s iOS 7 app management capabilities with app virtualization technology for Android to create a trusted BYOD workspace that supports any mobile app on any device. Now enterprises have a uniform way to secure and configure mobile apps on iPhone, iPad and Android devices allowing enterprises to focus on choosing apps for business and not worry about devices.
“MobileSpaces is pleased to be working with NitroDesk and we are excited that it demonstrates the new norm in mobile app security and provisioning,” said David Goldschlag, former VP Mobile at McAfee and now MobileSpaces CEO and co-founder. “The plug and play way our solutions work together unlocks the full potential of the mobile app economy and gives enterprises the freedom to choose any mobile app for work.”
