SUNNYVALE, Calif. and COLUMBIA, Md., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Good Technology™, the leader in secure enterprise mobility, and BoxTone®, the innovator of automated Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM), announced a strategic partnership to deliver the industry's only complete EMM solution today, and innovate new critical mobile device and application management capabilities to meet the rapidly-evolving needs of IT and lines of business leaders.
IT organizations now recognize that standalone mobile device management ("MDM") simply does not meet the demands of a fully-mobilized enterprise. In response, commodity MDM vendors are scrambling to bolt-on new mobile app security, containerization and perhaps service management features – core capabilities that Good and BoxTone have made industry standards for years. Thousands of organizations worldwide, including half of the FORTUNE 100, trust Good Technology and BoxTone to safely, efficiently and reliably scale their mobile enterprises.
In fact, in recognition of the growing need enterprises have to manage both mobile devices and mobile applications, IDC has decided to merge two previously distinct markets —mobile device management enterprise software and mobile application management software — into a new market called mobile enterprise management (MEM) software. According to Nick McQuire, IDC Research Director, Mobile Enterprise Strategies, "More and more companies are recognizing that they need to take a strategic approach to enterprise mobility, moving beyond standalone MDM or MAM to an integrated solution. A deeper relationship between Good Technology and BoxTone will certainly help customers take a more comprehensive and analytical approach to managing and securing their mobile lifecycle across users, devices, applications and platforms."
Now these two mobile enterprise veterans are partnering to deliver the 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. "We're excited to work with BoxTone to provide the enterprise marketplace with comprehensive service management, sophisticated analytics, and unified reporting so they can enhance the health, ROI, and compliance of their mobility deployments."
Good Technology and BoxTone already enable enterprises to get more from their EMM investments by providing 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, global organizations now have 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 strategic partnership will provide Good Technology customers with 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. "With more than a hundred joint customers already, our strategic partnership with Good will help more companies remove the barriers to mobilizing their enterprise safely, efficiently and reliably, laying the foundation for long-term mobile success."
Good Technology's secure email, collaboration and application solutions are already deeply integrated with BoxTone's sophisticated 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 percent 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.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
