MobileSpaces, a leading provider of mobile security for the app-centric enterprise, is the first to deliver on-demand workspace VPN access to enterprise Android users with the availability of MobileSpaces 3.0.
With this latest advancement in Android App Virtualization technology, MobileSpaces boosts the power of BYOD by giving employees easy and secure connectivity to enterprise services and applications that live behind the firewall. Enterprises can use MobileSpaces 3.0 to eliminate access barriers to Microsoft Lync, SharePoint, and popular enterprise application suites from SAP, Oracle and IBM. It’s easy for users because workspace connectivity is automatic and invisible and happens at the touch of an app.
With MobileSpaces 3.0, Android users now have the same simple, user-friendly access to datacenter applications and services as their iOS counterparts. Recently, analyst firm IDC estimated that 79 percent of smartphones shipped in 2013 were running Android, yet on-demand, per app VPN connectivity was previously only available to those with an iOS device. This gap has road-blocked enterprises from connecting BYOD users to the applications that employees want and businesses need.
“MobileSpaces 3.0 provides an app-agnostic security container that gives BYOD users instant and secure connectivity to corporate services and applications via the existing VPN,” said David Goldschlag, CEO and co-founder of MobileSpaces. “Security containers without this capability limit user activity to basic services such as email. Seamless and secure VPN access for personal mobile devices is the last puzzle piece needed to unlock the productivity potential of BYOD strategies.”
Yoav Weiss, CTO and co-founder of MobileSpaces added “MobileSpaces 3.0 is the first BYOD solution with end-to-end security for both iOS and Android. Our Android App Virtualization technology eliminates the risk of data loss with a container that encrypts stored data, controls data sharing between apps and connects directly to the VPN on a per app basis, all in an app-agnostic way. That’s an industry first that gives enterprises a consistent security posture for all BYOD users while letting them use any mobile app within the container.”
MobileSpaces 3.0 simplifies BYOD while making it highly secure and more powerful. MobileSpaces combines Apple’s iOS 7 app management capabilities with proprietary App Virtualization technology for Android to create a trusted container that secures any mobile app on any device. This latest product release gives both iOS and Android users on-demand VPN access using client certificate authentication. An embedded CA (Certificate Authority) and OCSP (Online Certificate Status Protocol) server simplify on-demand connectivity and compliance enforcement by eliminating the need for additional investment in public key infrastructure (PKI). Per-app connectivity is granularly controlled by policy to provide flexible SSL access to cloud services and VPN connectivity to data center services. The threat of man-in-the-middle attacks and malware is eliminated because the workspace prevents personal apps from accessing enterprise connections.
MobileSpaces 3.0 allows the enterprise to keep control of their data, secure application connectivity and allow business managers to choose their apps, while the employee gains workspace productivity, keeps private information private, and still has the choice over what device they want.
