Bitzer Mobile Delivers Secure Enterprise Workspace for Today’s Mobile Devices
Secure Mobile Access to Both Corporate Data and Containerized Apps While Preserving User Experience
SUNNYVALE, CA – October 10, 2012 – Bitzer Mobile Inc., a technology leader in enterprise mobility that delivers a Secure Enterprise Workspace for corporate data and apps on employees’ mobile devices, today launched Bitzer Enterprise Application Mobility (BEAM) 2.2 for tablets and smart phones. BEAM provides this capability for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and Corporate Owned Personally Enabled (COPE) environments. The infrastructure that delivers BEAM 2.2 provides security for mobile devices that the most stringent CIO demands while delivering a seamless experience for employees.
Bitzer’s Secure Container technology isolates corporate from personal data and apps on mobile devices, protecting business-critical information from unauthorized access. BEAM 2.2 offers six embedded apps (email, calendar, contacts, browser, mobile file manager, and document editor), and the ability to easily add HTML5 or native apps with the click of a button. These productivity features combined with secure access deliver a ‘Secure Enterprise Workspace’ which enables employees to be productive while being away from the office:
- Corporate email, calendar and contacts are in the container where email is protected and attachments can’t be leaked.
- A secure browser gives access to Intranet sites like SharePoint and the ability to run HTML5 apps with fully encrypted storage and cache.
- Mobile file manager provides access to a user’s Windows file system or SharePoint documents with off-line document editing capability built in. So there is no need to open files outside the container.
- Most importantly, the Bitzer Containerization Tool allows administrators to easily add any native mobile app (internally developed or from a third party) to the Secure Enterprise Workspace. These containerized apps logically reside within the Bitzer Secure Container and share authentication, secure transport and policy control that can be managed by the IT department.
In addition to the full set of app services mentioned above, BEAM 2.2 provides new security features such as FIPS140-2 certified encryption as well as support for One Time Password (OTP) tokens for authentication which is on top of already supported smart card authentication.
“We’re delivering the most compelling solution today for security minded companies who are seeking to improve employee productivity and velocity of decision making through mobility,” explained Naeem Zafar, CEO of Bitzer Mobile. “Our support of true Windows Single Sign-On and access with a secure AppTunnel™ sets us apart in this industry. Now with BEAM release 2.2 we have further increased our differentiation.”
Bitzer’s approach for app enablement is preferred by ISVs and app developers as it does not require any code change and companies embrace this as it is a completely scalable solution. Unlike approaches tried by other suppliers, containerization allows an organization to alter policy in real time without having to re-wrap and distribute the app. Most importantly, the user experience is simple and easy where users can move between apps within a trusted workspace without re-authenticating. Due to these unique advantages, Oracle recently announced that Bitzer will secure its popular Oracle Business Intelligence app for large customers who require enterprise grade security features for corporate apps running on employees’ mobile devices.
Pricing and Availability
BEAM 2.2 is available now, and is priced per user per month for a basic license. Optional features are available at additional cost.
