Good Technology: Good Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform

Good Technology Addresses Growing Requirement for True Enterprise Mobility Management with Good Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform Update

New features in Good’s integrated platform meet the needs of IT, end users and mobile app developers

Auckland, July 24, 2014 – Good Technology™, the leader in secure mobility, today announced new features are now available in the Good Dynamics® Secure Mobility Platform, the integrated platform that addresses the needs of all constituents: IT, the end user and mobile application developers. This update addresses the growing requirement across organisations for true enterprise mobility management by providing more IT policy controls, enabling faster development of feature-rich enterprise apps and delivering an enhanced end user experience.

Enterprise mobility is rapidly evolving. Organisations across industries are redesigning business processes with a ‘mobile first’ mentality, deploying mobile app-to-app workflows in place of PC equivalents. Their needs have evolved from simple containment on managed corporate-liable and BYO devices to broadly enabling mobility and collaboration to employees, partners and customers, quickly, without having to compromise on security or usability for their end users.

For enterprise mobile app developers, this update to the Good Dynamics Platform allows for the rapid creation of a new breed of mobile apps that can use server-based services, such as the now available online presence service, to create a richer user experience but without requiring complex server-side programming. For IT, this release provides additional security controls and enables the deployment of mobile apps that allow users to be more productive.

“Mobile backend services are going to have a significant impact on the enterprise mobile experience and Good's shared services framework uniquely supports that evolution of the mobile experience,” said John Herrema, senior vice president of product management at Good Technology. “These new features in the Good Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform provide even better support for developers, the line of business and IT in their efforts to provide memorable mobile experiences and securely enable mobility beyond the traditional confines of the enterprise.”

“Our BoardPad customers love that, through the Good Dynamics platform, they can provide board members and senior management with a secure ecosystem of linked-up apps on their mobile devices, whether BYOD or corporate owned,” said Martyn Chapman of ICSA Boardroom Apps’ executive committee. “The shared services framework also creates an ecosystem for developers, like us, where we can draw upon a library of enterprise-class services. This makes it easier and quicker to build business-ready apps without the need for server-side programming and replicating what other developers do so well.”

Commenting on the latest shared service, he explains, “The new online presence service, powered by the Good Dynamics integration with Lync, brings this to life for our customers. Through BoardPad for Good, board members can now view each other’s online availability while reviewing board papers and seamlessly launch a secure instant messaging conversation with Good Connect. All of this was available through Good Dynamics, saving considerable development time.”

Additional features in this update include:
More enterprise IT policy controls.
• Policy to enable secure cut/copy/paste of data between Good-secured apps for iOS devices
• Policy to ensure FIPS-mode operation of Good-secured apps, enabling adherence to corporate requirements for FIPS-compliance
• Ability to route all client traffic through the Good Proxy server, reducing the need for highly complex route mapping

Ability to build better apps, faster.
• Online presence service is now available to commercial and enterprise mobile app developers
• Support for 64-bit apps on iOS, allowing for the creation of Good-secured apps that perform CPU-intensive operations (e.g., handling large data sets, image processing, etc.) faster
• Support multi-tasking on iOS 7, allowing development of Good-secured apps that can continue operating even when in the background

Improved user experience.
• Refreshed enterprise app store user interface
• Support for easy activation in the enterprise app store client

This update is now available for customers of the Good Dynamics Platform. For more information, please visit:
