Good Adds to Mobile Collaboration Solution

— October 18, 2012

Two new additions to Good Technology’s mobile collaboration solution – Good Share and Good Connect – allow mobile workers to access SharePoint and other corporate file shares, send secure instant messages, edit documents and send and receive email. Overall, the solution is aimed to:

  • Increase employee productivity with a secure, end-to-end mobile collaboration workflow
  • Provide flexibility and app choice to mobile workers, without compromising data security
  • Reduce the cost and complexity of managing collaboration apps by using a single, integrated infrastructure
The New Additions
Good Share is a secure mobile file sharing and data syncing technology that builds on Copiun TrustedShare technology to enable business workers to access, sync and share enterprise information located on SharePoint or other file repositories from anywhere, at any time, using their mobile phone or tablet.

The other added component, Good Connect, is an instant messaging client that securely routes instant messages from behind a firewall to mobile devices using FIPS-certified AES encryption libraries. Good Connect lets employees collaborate with colleagues in real-time, as well as view availability, send and receive secure instant messages, initiate a phone call or send a secure email while protecting sensitive business communications.

The two components integrate with those already included in the mobile collaboration solution, which include the Good for Enterprise secure email and browser application and Good Dynamics Partner Apps, an app ecosystem which provides secure, managed productivity apps that include document editing, PDF annotation, and public cloud storage solutions to enhance workflow and data protection.

With the solution, IT can give employees productivity applications that enhance real-time communication and collaboration, while protecting corporate data. For example, an employee can access a document on SharePoint from a tablet, send an instant message to a colleague to ask a quick question about a particular detail within the document, then edit and email the updated file to a customer or prospect, all within a unified, secure workflow.

This research examines the current state of mobility in an attempt to answer that question.
