SAP Mobile Secure portfolio expands cloud capabilities
SAP is updating its Mobile Secure enterprise mobility management portfolio, integrating partner Mocana's Mobile App Protection solution as well as enhancing mobile browser and mobile content management capabilities.
SAP Mobile Secure, introduced this spring, enables businesses to safeguard iOS and Android devices against loss and theft. With the addition of the Mobile App Protection service, SAP can offer customers a complete solution for mobile content security in the cloud, protecting applications developed in-house or by SAP and third parties. The solution complements SAP's existing Afaria mobile device security offering, which offers IT managers insight into real-time device usage and status alongside remote lock and wipe capabilities.
SAP's secure browser extends app level security to intranet data, web apps and portals. Businesses may now bolster almost any web app with advanced policies including FIPS 140-2 data-at-rest encryption, per-app VPN capability, copy/paste protection and app-level data wipe. In addition, administrators can configure browser security across any device, even those not under active management.
SAP Mobile Secure also secures access to content via the SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud service's Mobile Documents solution, which provides an entry point to personal documents and corporate content from a single account. The latest release of SAP Mobile Documents adds support for iPhone and Android, a new user interface, custom branding for iPad, improved connectivity to corporate content management systems and security policies based on document classification.
"With SAP Mobile Secure solutions in the cloud, IT not only deploys and helps protect mobile devices, sensitive content and both native and web-based mobile apps, they can be a strategic driver for business," said Anthony Reynolds, SAP's senior vice president of Worldwide Mobile Sales and Solutions. "The fact that the entire SAP Mobile Secure portfolio is now available in the cloud affords companies the flexibility to secure mobile devices, apps and content seamlessly and affordably. The business can then focus on executing on its mobile strategy and building a portfolio of mobile applications to drive business results."
