Good Technology and BoxTone formed a strategic partnership to immediately deliver a complete Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution and to create new critical mobile device and application management capabilities to meet the rapidly evolving needs of IT and lines of business leaders.
Thousands of organizations worldwide, including half of the FORTUNE 100, use Good Technology and BoxTone to safely, efficiently and reliably scale their mobile enterprises. Now the two companies are partnering to deliver four critical capabilities of the mobile lifecycle: mobile security, mobile device and application management, mobile analytics and mobile service management.
Through this complete EMM solution, enterprises and government agencies worldwide can confidently transition to mobile-first organizations to increase employee productivity, improve customer service and create new sources of revenue.
"Mobile enterprise environments are increasingly complex with a diverse mix of BYO and company-owned smartphones and tablets, multiple mobile OS platforms, and more business and productivity apps than ever before. Companies looking to harness the full power of mobility to boost employee productivity, increase competitiveness, and better serve their customers need a secure, reliable and easy to use platform to manage the entire mobile lifecycle – across all users, apps and devices," said John Herrema, senior vice president of corporate strategy, Good Technology.
Good and BoxTone already provide full visibility and control over enterprise mobile ecosystems. Bringing together the mobile app and data security technology found in Good Dynamics and Good for Enterprise with BoxTone's mobile device, analytics and service management capabilities creates a unified platform to efficiently secure, manage and monitor enterprise iOS, Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry smartphones and tablets and the apps that run on them.
The partnership now enables Good to resell BoxTone EMM modules, providing Good customers with immediate access to BoxTone's advanced mobile device management, mobile application management and mobile service management capabilities.
"Today's leading companies are realizing that enterprise mobility isn't just about connecting and configuring devices, or securing email alone. Rather, mobilizing their businesses and workforces requires a three-pronged approach: a technology solution that secures the device, apps, and data; a platform to deliver secure enterprise apps; and a full-lifecycle EMM platform to manage, monitor and support all users, apps and devices," said Brian C. Reed, chief marketing and product officer, BoxTone.
Good's secure email, collaboration and application solutions are already deeply integrated with BoxTone's EMM platform with automated policy and configuration management, real-time monitoring, proactive alerting, and automated diagnostics — all designed to get mobile users connected fast and keep them up, running, and productive 24/7 as the enterprise scales to 100% workforce mobilization.
With the growing focus on business-critical applications, Good and BoxTone are also jointly developing more sophisticated mobile analytics and dashboards to provide enterprises with deep insight into the usage and performance of these mobile apps, enabling IT and app owners actionable insight to make better business decisions about their rapidly growing app portfolio.
