Nukona has launched the Nukona App Center, an enterprise-grade mobile application management and security service that enables IT organizations to secure, deploy and manage corporate apps on both company and employee-owned mobile devices.
Nukona securely separates corporate and personal apps and data. Company officials said that this enables employee-owned devices to be used at work, as well as ensuring that peoples' personal apps and data are left intact, private and under their personal control.
Nukona App Center provides a comprehensive service comprised of three key components; a private, corporate-branded app store, Nukona AppWrap and Mobile Device Management (MDM).
A private, corporate-branded app store enables the deployment of applications and applying of policies, including customized access and tiered privacy controls, said company officials. In addition, it also enables sophisticated management features, such as pinpoint corporate app revocation.
Automatically, Nukona AppWrap “wraps” a layer of mobile security around both native and Web applications. Developers do not need SDK or additional effort to secure the apps. Company officials said that this allows enterprise IT to apply enterprise policies and security levels to the app and the data it manages without requiring the app developer to become a mobile security expert.
MDM enables an IT administrator to assert basic controls over the devices, including wipe, revoke and set password policies.
“In addition to securing mobile devices, Nukona enables enterprises to quickly enable developers to create apps for deployment onto mobile devices without having to become experts in mobile security,” said Chris Perret, co-founder and CEO of Nukona.
Nukona App Center is available in two editions: the Standard Edition and the Enterprise Edition. The Standard Edition includes the private app store and mobile device management for Android devices. Company officials said that the Enterprise Edition adds AppWrap and a number of other enterprise-oriented features for deployment, management and security.
Nukona is a mobile management company that enables IT organizations to secure, deploy and manage business applications and enterprise data on company-owned and personal mobile devices.
Earlier in May, Nukona and Integer Wireless announced a relationship designed to help healthcare organizations meet those needs quickly and cost-effectively.
