AirWatch and FeedHenry Partner to Provide New Model for App Development and Management for the Enterprise
Burlington, MA and Atlanta, GA – February 11, 2014 – FeedHenry, provider of the industry's leading cloud-based next-generation mobile application platform for the enterprise, today announced a technology partnership with AirWatch, the world's leading Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) provider. The joint solution, which enables the simple and rapid creation of mobile enterprise applications that can be immediately deployed and managed within the AirWatch app catalog is available today.
" IT organizations often need to develop, deploy and maintain mobile applications quickly and securely to accelerate business opportunities and promote employee productivity," said John Marshall, CEO, AirWatch. "FeedHenry's platform integration with AirWatch provides enterprises the ability to secure their mobile devices, and to simplify app development with connectivity to backend systems through RESTful APIs in the cloud."
The integration of FeedHenry's Mobile Application Platform with AirWatch enables organizations to develop, integrate and secure enterprise apps and content on mobile devices, while letting IT manage policies and access controls at the enterprise level.
"The integration of our next generation Mobile Application Platform with AirWatch's EMM solution now gives enterprises secure device management along with the ability to develop, host and manage native, hybrid and HTML5 applications," said Cathal McGloin, CEO, FeedHenry. "Most mobile enterprise deployments have been focused on the development of one off tactical applications for specific groups of employees or customers. Increasingly however, organizations are looking towards more advanced mobilization of a broader set of assets and back-end data sets. We believe that agile, cloud-based mobile application platforms, alongside MDM solutions, will play an important role in this enablement."
