Bitzer Mobile Inc., a software technology solution provider that simplifies enterprise application access on mobile devices, announced the immediate availability of the new Enterprise Virtualized Mobility solution (EVM). EVM is a focused solution that isolates corporate data from personal data on employee owned mobile devices and enables secure remote access of enterprise applications on the same devices using multiplatform native mobile apps.
"Bitzer’s EVM will change the way businesses deploy applications on mobile devices. Our technology offers a unique solution for enterprises motivated to provide employees and partners with critical information at their fingertips on their personal devices," says Ali Ahmed, CTO and founder of Bitzer Mobile. "Our open, standards-based, technology will help CIOs and IT managers quickly prototype, test, develop, deploy, and support multiplatform native apps and consumerization using a single solution that was not available until now."
At the heart of EVM is a “virtual container” that is deployed on mobile devices as a native app. This virtual container is controlled by the IT personnel in an enterprise to deliver the right data and access to the right mobile employee on a device of his or her choosing. This addresses the demand of consumerization of the enterprise where an employee’s personal mobile device is often used to access corporate data and decision-making information.
“Mobility is accelerating the pace of business and providing significant productivity, making the need for increased access to business applications on mobile devices a critical component of competitive advantage and for success," says Bill French, founder, iPadCTO.com.
"The app-centric enterprise is rapidly emerging in response to this need, but there are few methods available to accelerate development and streamline access to existing enterprise applications. BitzerMobile offers a unique cross-platform blend of security, provisioning, and integration to provide a mobile remote access solution for enterprise applications, unlike any that I have seen,” he says.
Bitzer’s end-to-end mobile virtualization and consumerization solution provides the following benefits to businesses interested in offering remote access to enterprise data and applications on employee and employer owned mobile devices:
• Simple Integration Process – Bitzer’s Mobile Virtualization Layer
(MVL) connects to existing remote access infrastructure to provide mobile data transport, offline synchronization, native views, graphs and user authentication services to multiple mobile devices. Furthermore, MVL enables access to multiple enterprise applications from a single icon on mobile devices. MVLs can be deployed on-premise or in-the-cloud.
• True Native Applications - Bitzer’s patent pending Enterprise Virtual App Container (EVC) is deployed as a native mobile app on mobile devices such as iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, Windows and Android. EVC provides remote access to enterprise applications with a rich experience using the device’s native interface, screen-size, graphics and interaction style.
• Full IT Admin Control –The Admin Control Panel centrally manages all
mobile users and devices by managing the EVC. This central control panel allows IT managers to provision users, enforce authentication and security policies, apply geo fencing, provide on-the-fly provisioning of apps, remotely wipe and lock apps and record usage stats and audit logs.
