Aruba Networks adds seven new financial services apps to WorkSpace Program
Aug 20, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
Aruba Networks, Inc., a provider of network access solutions for the mobile enterprise, has announced the addition of seven new financial services apps to the Aruba WorkSpace Partner Program.
The newly-added apps -AsdeqDocs, Calltrunk, Framehawk, Onvelop, PDF Expert Enterprise, WatchDox and Webalo -join financial services app SlideShark, already certified for Aruba WorkSpace in April 2013, in the Aruba WorkSpace Partner Program.
With the addition of these new apps into the Aruba WorkSpace App Ecosystem, financial services firms can now confidently deploy them as part of a BYOD initiative, since WorkSpace delivers the robust security and management capabilities required by this highly-regulated industry. Integrating the apps with Aruba WorkSpace, the only mobile device management (MDM) solution to include network access, security and mobile application management (MAM) for BYOD, enables financial services firms to distribute apps to mobile devices and control how they are used based on the user's role in the organization and context information such as time, location and motion.
Aruba WorkSpace adds strong encryption and enterprise-grade security to these apps, protecting data at rest on the device and data in motion over the network. Unlike other BYOD solutions, Aruba WorkSpace does not store encryption keys on the device, where they can be susceptible to security compromises. Instead, split-key encryption is used to ensure an application's data can't be maliciously accessed, even if the device is offline, the company said.
WorkSpace makes network security and intelligence available to the newly-certified financial apps. Using dynamic per-app VPNs, WorkSpace secures all data associated with the apps over the air and gives a consistent experience to users. In addition, organizations can set network priority for apps to ensure high bandwidth and low latency.
According to the company, AsdeqDocs is an on-premise enterprise mobility content management solution that enables the secure, seamless and dynamic synchronization of corporate documents to Android and iOS tablets and smartphones. Calltrunk allows users to record mobile, landline and Skype recordings, saving all the recordings in one place and allowing them to search, in an instant, for the words that were actually spoken. Framehawk provides a software platform that enables secure, high-performance application delivery to mobile devices.
Onvelop for Office 365 & Sharepoint provides a unified collaboration and communication suite that enables secure mobile access to enterprise server software such as Office 365, SharePoint and Lync from iOS and Android mobile devices.
PDF Expert Enterprise is a document management system for the mobile era that helps organizations set up a paperless workflow on mobile devices, allowing companies to replace paper documents with iPads for a wide range of tasks, from board meetings to form filling and sales in the field. SlideShark is the award-winning, free mobile app that enables businesses and individuals to show PowerPoint presentations from the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch the way they were meant to be seen-accurately and professionally every time-with animations, fonts, graphics, hyperlinks and videos intact, the company added.
WatchDox enables enterprises to securely sync, share and work with their files wherever they need to go - even on devices beyond IT control. Webalo mobilizes enterprise applications and data in minutes at an infrastructure level to deliver secure bi-directional, transactional interactivity 100x faster and at a fraction of the cost of traditional mobile application development.
"Financial services firms are looking to capitalize on the productivity benefits that the BYOD trend offers, but they have stringent security and regulatory requirements that must be addressed first," said Peter Cellarius, vice president of business development and partnerships, Aruba Networks. "In short, they must have a solid handle on the devices and applications connecting to their network. Combining Aruba WorkSpace with these popular financial services apps allows financial services firms to deliver all the productivity benefits of BYOD to their users without compromising the security of corporate applications and data that reside on employees' personal mobile devices."
