By Jessica Binns, Contributing Editor — May 01, 2012

Mformation Technologies, Inc., a global provider of mobile device management (MDM) technology, is partnering with Bitzer Mobile, an enterprise mobility solution provider that utilizes a secure, mobile app container to isolate corporate access and data from employees' personal apps and data. Mformation is integrating the Bitzer enterprise mobility platform into the Mformation Enterprise Manager Cloud solution.

Naeem Zafar, CEO of Bitzer Mobile, said, "Mobile security has become a major requirement and challenge as employers embrace BYOD (bring your own device) programs. Combining Mformation's mobile device management capabilities with Bitzer's secure container solution enables the enterprise to meet its security needs while preserving the user experience expected by consumers on their smartphones and tablets."

"Mobility is maturing into a business-critical part of the enterprise. Device management and security are core components of the enterprise mobility solution space. The ability to partition and secure corporate data on mobile devices is a key CIO requirement in a BYOD world," said Charles Crouchman, senior vice president operations, Mformation. "Integrating the Bitzer product into our enterprise Cloud MDM platform allows CIOs and employees to safely share in benefits of the BYOD trend."

The increasing proportion of iOS and Android devices, including BYOD devices, combined with more enterprise applications and data being used via mobile devices creates an increasingly critical but complex management problem for enterprises.

Mformation Enterprise Manager enables Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to provide a secure, customized mobile management environment to their enterprise customers, giving enterprise IT managers direct control of the handsets used by their employees, ranging from the latest Android and iOS devices to other smart mobile and computing devices. The solution works across all of the key mobile device platforms used in the enterprise, meeting a critical enterprise IT requirement. The Mformation solution helps enterprise customers to manage all phases of the mobile device and application lifecycle.

The Bitzer enterprise mobility platform enables companies to securely extend access to corporate data and applications to their employees using their mobile devices. Bitzer's unique hybrid approach allows the user to gain access to Intranet sites via a secure browser as well as important enterprise applications as native apps. Bitzer's secure container offers the ease of virtualized business logic served with enterprise-grade security and manageability.
