AppSense Unveils MobileNow, Unlocks BYOD Potential for Organizations and Employees

State of the Art Mobile Management Solution Liberates Users While Providing IT Precise Control Over Mobile Device, Application and Data Management Policies

NEW YORK - Jan 29, 2013 - AppSense, the leader in people-centric computing, today released MobileNow, the only 100% SaaS based mobile device, application and data management solution designed for Enterprise and Mid-Market organizations that bridges application/data access, corporate compliance and strong security to personal devices in work environments. MobileNow provides a full set of product features that move beyond simple mobile device management capabilities to provide IT with the strongest, deepest policy controls possible across mobile devices, applications and data.

"MobileNow has driven our top line by unleashing our organization from the challenges of BYOD. As a federally chartered credit union we are highly regulated and need to keep our data highly secure. Our employees now have seamless, secure access to corporate data and apps from their mobile devices, while IT can easily manage data security and compliance," said Sachin Kundra Vice President of IT for Chevron Federal Credit Union. "MobileNow is the only solution that offered features beyond MDM, and was exceptionally easy to implement. We were up and running in a single afternoon."

Governance, Risk and Compliance Challenges off the Table for IT Departments
With MobileNow, IT departments can easily manage a diverse set of employees using multiple devices, as well their applications, securely and seamlessly, independent of the type of device used.

  • Combined Mobile Management Product: MobileNow combines the benefits of Mobile Device Management (MDM), Mobile Application Management (MAM) and secure native email so IT can manage a single, all-in-one solution with no required infrastructure. MobileNow provides IT with the option to use business applications on corporate or personal devices, but still manage and enforce corporate policies and controls.

  • Secure and Isolate Business Applications: MobileNow securely isolates business applications - both in-house and 3rd party apps - from personal applications and ensures business data is always encrypted, compliant and protected by the policies that IT sets - all while delivering a frictionless and fully native experience to end-users.

  • Flexible, Easy to Use Solution: Through a SaaS deployment model, organizations are up and running in minutes with zero capital expenditure as no hardware is required. MobileNow's MDM and MAM capabilities can be deployed independently to leverage existing legacy solutions or as an integrated suite.

Users Achieve Application and Data Access Nirvana Without Handcuffs of IT
MobileNow users are given the freedom of choice to create their own mobile experience through:

  • Instant Application and Data Access: Users have the ability to access applications and data anywhere, at anytime and on any device without fear of being locked out or waiting for permission.

  • BYOD Support: Allows users to freely use devices and applications of personal choice while seamlessly compliant with corporate security and access policies.

"We are at a tipping point where any-time, any-where access to corporate apps and data is no longer a nice-to-have, it's a requirement," said Ajay Arora, CTO of Mobile at AppSense. "Companies that embrace enterprise consumerization will fly past IT departments that don't allow users flexibility. MobileNow frees users of corporate boundaries and enables IT to enforce the security and compliance controls they require over sensitive corporate apps and data. AppSense MobileNow delivers the best of both worlds: freedom for users and seamless control for IT."

MobileNow is available today for smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices. To learn more about MobileNow and for a free 30-day trial, please visit http://www.appsense.com/mobilenow.

The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrateg...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective ...
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA).

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...
DevOps is all about agility. However, you don't want to be on a high-speed bus to nowhere. The right DevOps approach controls velocity with a tight feedback loop that not only consists of operational data but also incorporates business context.

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices.

But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp.

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers).

In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. Acco...
The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture.

There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
