Oct 31, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
SAP AG, a provider of enterprise software to manage business operations and customer relations, has announced updates to the SAP Mobile Secure portfolio to help companies secure devices, apps and content.
The newest release of this enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution portfolio shall include the cloud edition of the SAP Mobile App Protection solution by Mocana with app wrapping, a new secure mobile browser and enhanced capabilities for mobile content management. With these additional capabilities, businesses will be able to quickly secure apps in the cloud with a single console and secure browser for intranet data, Web apps and portals to almost any iOS or Android device.
Building on the momentum of the cloud edition of the SAP Afaria mobile device management solution, businesses shall be able to secure iOS and Android apps with the cloud edition of SAP Mobile App Protection, which is planned for release at a future date. This solution is intended to enable customers to add fine-grained security control into apps developed in-house or by SAP and third parties. With this addition, SAP will be able to offer customers a complete solution for mobile device, app and content security in the cloud.
A new secure mobile browser extends app level security to intranet data, Web apps and portals. With the secure mobile browser, companies can wrap advanced policies, including FIPS 140-2 data-at-rest encryption, true per-app VPN capability, copy/paste protection and app-level data wipe, into most any Web app. Administrators can configure browser security even for devices not under active management.
SAP enables secure access to mobile content via the SAP Mobile Documents solution using the SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud service, helping to increase user productivity by providing a single entry point to personal documents and corporate content from a single account. The latest release of SAP Mobile Documents has added support for iPhone and Android, a new user-interface, custom branding for iPad, enhanced connectivity to corporate content management systems and security policies based on document classification.
The SAP Mobile Secure portfolio will offer customers affordable enterprise-grade security for devices, apps and content in the cloud, through the following offerings: SAP Afaria, cloud edition, at one euro per device per month; SAP Mobile Documents at four euros per user per month; and SAP Mobile App Protection, cloud edition, pricing to be determined.
"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, senior vice president, Worldwide Mobile Sales and Solutions, SAP.
"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."
