As more employees use personal smartphones and tablets for work, it becomes increasingly vital for enterprises to protect sensitive corporate data. To address this growing need, Nukona, Inc. launched the Nukona App Center, an enterprise-grade mobile application management and security service that enables IT organizations to secure, deploy, and manage corporate apps on both company and employee-owned mobile devices.
By securely separating corporate and personal apps and data, Nukona enables employee-owned devices to be used at work, while ensuring that peoples’ personal apps and data are left intact, private and under their personal control.
Nukona App Center provides a comprehensive service comprised of three key components:
- A private, corporate-branded app store that can be created in just a few minutes to deploy applications; apply policies, including customized access and tiered privacy controls while enabling sophisticated management features, such as pinpoint corporate app revocation.
- Nukona AppWrap, which automatically “wraps” a layer of mobile security around both native and Web applications. Apps are secured with no SDK or additional effort required by the developer. This allows enterprise IT to apply enterprise policies and security levels to the app and the data it manages without requiring the app developer to become a mobile security expert.
- Mobile Device Management (MDM) enables an IT administrator to assert basic controls over the devices, including wipe, revoke and set password policies.
“Consumer devices are invading the enterprise – opening companies up to significant security and data access vulnerabilities,” says Chris Perret, co-founder and CEO of Nukona. “IT organizations must be able to easily maintain control of corporate apps and data in a way that goes beyond simple mobile device management. In addition to securing mobile devices, Nukona enables enterprises to quickly enable developers to create apps for deployment onto mobile devices without having to become experts in mobile security.”
Nukona App Center is available in two editions. The Standard Edition includes the private app store and mobile device management for Android devices. It is available for full production use – free of charge – for up to 250 devices. The Enterprise Edition adds AppWrap and a number of other enterprise-oriented features for deployment, management, and security. It is priced per subscriber.
“Nukona’s goal is to help enterprises manage the risks inherent in having employee-owned devices as part of the corporate landscape,” Perret continues. “In so doing, we enable organizations to gain competitive advantage by grasping the opportunities afforded by the latest advances in consumer mobile technology.”
