The new enhancements will help organisations to accelerate ‘Bring Your Own Device’ trend
Security firm Symantec has introduced new enterprise mobile enhancements to help organisations improve operational efficiencies and meet the challenges emerging out of ‘Bring Your Own Device’ trend.
The new enterprise mobile capabilities include: Mobile Application Management, Symantec Data Loss Prevention for Mobile, Symantec Certificate Intelligence Center for Mobile and Symantec Code Signing for Android.
Acquisition of Nukon will enable Symantec to offers CIOs the cross-platform mobile application management needed to help organisations containerize corporate applications and protect sensitive data.
With the ability to protect and control iOS, Android and HTML5 apps, Symantec addresses the core problem of corporate and personal data separation without limiting the end-user experience or application adoption.
Symantec Data Loss Prevention for Mobile will include added support for the iPhone and the application will help CISOs monitor and control the transmission of confidential data from mobile devices without restricting users’ access to applications.
The Data Loss Prevention for Mobile is combined with Symantec Mobile Management to provide an application to enable organisations to support business productivity and personal use concurrently.
Symantec Certificate Intelligence Center (CIC) for Mobile is an extension of Symantec Certificate Intelligence Center and it provides additional capabilities to solving the challenges of managing SSL certificates across large and complex networks.
The CIC for Mobile will enable the IT managers and stakeholders to monitor and manage their SSL certificate inventory anytime, anywhere.
Symantec Code Signing for Android provides a tool for developers to digitally sign their .APK files for the Android platform and also allows developers to securely manage their certificate keys and store their signed applications, all from a single intuitive cloud-based console.
