Cellrox, a provider of multiple persona solutions for mobile devices, announced that SAP Labs is piloting their BYOD solution which allows enterprise employees to securely access both corporate and personal virtual environments from their mobile devices.
The solution incorporates Cellrox's ThinVisor technology and enables co-hosting of two or more individual, independent, and secure virtual environments on a single mobile device. Called the Cellrox Corporate Android Enabler, the solution allows usage of personal information manager applications, as well as proprietary SAP applications for Android devices over SAP's infrastructure.
"We are excited SAP selected Cellrox for their BYOD pilot," Omar Eiferman, CEO of Cellrox, said in a statement. "When we designed our solutions, we took into account both the corporate and the user needs. Corporations want to accommodate the BYOD trend by they face grave security risks. Corporate employees, on the other hand, want to enjoy the BYOD trend but without compromising device performance, user experience, or their privacy."
The mobile virtualization solution began pilot testing at SAP Labs in Israel in December 2011, and is expected to expand to SAP AG in Germany.
