Armor5 is offering a “zero touch” service to safeguard intranet and cloud data applications by ensuring content from these systems never actually resides on the end-users’ devices. A beta version of the service is available on the company’s website.
The service connects to a company's network via VPN, virtualizes intranet data and cloud applications, and generates a secure URL that mobile workers can use to access content and applications safely from any device - personal or company issued. The entire provisioning process, from IT sign-up to end-user productivity, takes just a few minutes.
Armor5 can be deployed without mobile client software installation, without mobile security agents, without any configuration on the part of IT, and without intranet data or enterprise cloud applications ever downloaded to the end-user device.
For additional security, Armor5 offers dynamic watermarking and the disabling of downloading, forwarding and printing of documents. Using the cloud-based dashboard, IT can monitor and manage end-users, devices and documents, and ensure BYOD policies and compliance standards are being met while providing analytics to speed auditing and reporting.
The solution has received $2 million in seed funding from Citrix, Nexus Venture Partners and Trinity Ventures, to redefine data security and compliance for the mobile enterprise.
