Bitzer Mobile Debuts Secure Enterprise Workspace
By Raju Shanbhag
Companies have often limited employees’ access to corporate network and data from mobile devices because of issues of authentication, policy control and data leakage. Sometimes, they put in place a MDM solution that seriously obstructs the privacy and user experience.
They need a solution that can overcome the mobile security risk by separating corporate access and data from employee’s personal apps on mobile devices.
In an attempt to provide that solution companies seek, Bitzer Mobile has launched Bitzer Enterprise Application Mobility (BEAM) 2.2 for tablets and smartphones. BEAM works with Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and Corporate Owned Personally Enabled (COPE) environments.
BEAM 2.2 provides numerous embedded apps, which include calendar, e-mail, browser, contacts, document editor and mobile file manager. It also provides the ability to add HTML5 or native apps with just a click of a button.
Along with secure access, these productivity features provide a “Secure Enterprise Workspace.” According to the company, this feature allows workers to be away from the office and stay productive at the same time.
“We're delivering the most compelling solution today for security minded companies who are seeking to improve employee productivity and velocity of decision making through mobility," explained Naeem Zafar, CEO at Bitzer Mobile. "Our support of true Windows Single Sign-On and access with a secure AppTunnel sets us apart in this industry. Now with BEAM release 2.2 we have further increased our differentiation.”
Recently, the company entered into a partnership with three Wire Systems to address the concerns associated with BYOD implementation in federal agencies. The partnership allows mobile users at federal agencies to make use of Bitzer's secure container-based mobile security technology.
By providing safe mobile access to government data, networks and applications and safeguarding the same from unauthorized access or data leakage, they can improve employee productivity.
