Good Technology Expands into Japan to Support Growing Demand for Secure Mobility
SUNNYVALE, Calif. and TOKYO, May 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Good Technology ™, the leader in secure mobility, today announced its expansion into the Japanese market, where demand for secure mobility solutions is increasing exponentially due to the rapid adoption of smart devices across the enterprise. To respond to the demand, Good Technology has established a Japanese corporation headquartered in Tokyo. The company also announced today that NTT DOCOMO, Japan's leading telecommunications carrier, will include Good Technology's mobile security solution for enterprise users on iOS, Android and Windows Phone platforms.
Mobile devices have fundamentally changed the way the world works. According to IDC, there will be more than one billion smartphones and tablets used in global business by 2016.1 With that adoption, users will expect the same access to corporate apps and information as they once had on desktop PCs. Specifically in Japan, as bring-your-own-device (BYOD) continues to grow, IT departments of organizations both large and small are looking to balance mobile security with the need for employee productivity.
Christy Wyatt, CEO of Good Technology, said: "There is a growing awareness across Japan that mobile device management (MDM) alone is an insufficient approach to securing mobile data. Our recent acquisition of BoxTone was Good's first step in providing enterprise customers in Japan with access to secure mobility, so they protect their data and not just their devices. Today, we are delighted to expand that investment by bringing an even broader set of solutions to the Japanese market."
Norio Gokita, country manager of Good Technology Japan, said: "There is rapidly growing demand for secure mobility solutions in Japan, as the country illustrates its leadership in mobile communications and its enterprises are spearheading wide adoption of mobile devices and applications. Good's offerings can provide a breadth of data security solutions across iOS, Android and Windows Phone, ranging from mobile device management and mobile application management to productivity applications and a broad set of mobile tools that enable business transformation. We stand ready to support the Japanese market, so more local businesses can reap the benefits of secure mobile computing."
