Good Technology has enhanced its Good Dynamics security platform by adding Good Dynamics AppKinetics into the mix, a move which the company says will secure the transfer, storage and use of enterprise data. This, coupled with the addition of eight third-party enterprise Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to the platform, have Good Technology believing that they have swiftly improved mobile workforce efficiency.
The AppKinetics technology, according to an official press release from Good Technology, allows the secure "containerization" model to aid in the exchange of information between business applications from Good Technology, its partner ISVs within the Good Dynamics platform and internal enterprise developers. This, according to Good, will "create seamless multi-app workflows without compromising security or employees’ privacy and personal experience."
Meanwhile, the ISVs now included in the Good Dynamics suite of enterprise applications include Box, Copiun, iAnnotate, GroupLogic, Roambi and more. All of the ISVs bring something different to the table, from document editing and creation to business intelligence and cloud and remote desktop access, and are designed to interact with one another in the interest of increasing efficiency across the mobile universe.
Roambi's Vice President of Business Development David Becerra, whose company's business intelligence software has been integrated with Good Dynamics, is just one of the people who is excited about the partnership's benefits for the mobile workforce.
"As mobile phones and tablets become the most dominant tools in business, more IT managers and workforces are turning to Roambi for its dynamic user experience and multi-layer security features," Becerra said. "Our partnership with Good Technology makes it easier for CIOs and IT managers to quickly implement Roambi to streamline and modernize how workforces receive, analyze, publish and present key business information."
All the while, Good's Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) has the task of keeping these third-party applications, as well as network devices, secure. Good stated that EMM allows IT administrators to manage both corporate-owned and employee-owned devices and the apps therein by providing services like application blacklisting and whitelisting, app store control, app distribution, device encryption, password enforcement and remote device lock and wipe.
The Android and iOS operating systems have specific feature sets as it relates to the Good Dynamics update. Information on that and more can be found on the company's official website.
