MobileSpaces 3.0 Delivers Industry's First On-Demand Workspace VPN Connectivity for Enterprise Android Users
SILVER SPRING, Md. --(Business Wire)--
a leading provider of mobile security for the app-centric enterprise, is
the first to deliver on-demand workspace VPN access to enterprise
Android (News - Alert) users with the availability of MobileSpaces 3.0.
With this latest advancement in Android App Virtualization technology,
MobileSpaces boosts the power of BYOD by giving employees easy and
secure connectivity to enterprise services and applications that live
behind the firewall. Enterprises can use MobileSpaces 3.0 to eliminate
access barriers to Microsoft (News - Alert) Lync, SharePoint, and popular enterprise
application suites from SAP, Oracle and IBM. It's easy for users because
workspace connectivity is automatic and invisible and happens at the
touch of an app.
With MobileSpaces 3.0, Android users now have the same simple,
user-friendly access to datacenter applications and services as their
iOS counterparts. Recently, analyst firm IDC (News - Alert) estimated that 79 percent
of smartphones shipped in 2013 were running Android, yet on-demand, per
app VPN connectivity was previously only available to those with an iOS
device. This gap has road-blocked enterprises from connecting BYOD users
to the applications that employees want and businesses need.
"MobileSpaces 3.0 provides an app-agnostic security container that gives
BYOD users instat and secure connectivity to corporate services and
applications via the existing VPN," said David Goldschlag, CEO and
co-founder of MobileSpaces. "Security containers without this capability
limit user activity to basic services such as email. Seamless and secure
VPN access for personal mobile devices is the last puzzle piece needed
to unlock the productivity potential of BYOD strategies."
Yoav Weiss, CTO and co-founder of MobileSpaces added "MobileSpaces 3.0
is the first BYOD solution with end-to-end security for both iOS and
Android. Our Android App Virtualization technology eliminates the risk
of data loss with a container that encrypts stored data, controls data
sharing between apps and connects directly to the VPN on a per app
basis, all in an app-agnostic way. That's an industry first that gives
enterprises a consistent security posture for all BYOD users while
letting them use any mobile app within the container."
MobileSpaces 3.0 simplifies BYOD while making it highly secure and more
powerful. MobileSpaces combines Apple's iOS 7 app management
capabilities with proprietary App Virtualization technology for Android
to create a trusted container that secures any mobile app on any device.
This latest product release gives both iOS and Android users on-demand
VPN access using client certificate authentication. An embedded CA (News - Alert)
(Certificate Authority) and OCSP (Online Certificate Status Protocol)
server simplify on-demand connectivity and compliance enforcement by
eliminating the need for additional investment in public key
infrastructure (PKI). Per-app connectivity is granularly controlled by
policy to provide flexible SSL access to cloud services and VPN
connectivity to data center services. The threat of man-in-the-middle
attacks and malware is eliminated because the workspace prevents
personal apps from accessing enterprise connections.
MobileSpaces 3.0 allows the enterprise to keep control of their data,
secure application connectivity and allow business managers to choose
their apps, while the employee gains workspace productivity, keeps
private information private, and still has the choice over what device they
for more information.
MobileSpaces helps enterprises mobilize their applications and services,
govern their data, and respect the privacy of their employees.
MobileSpaces offers a BYOD app-agnostic workspace that protects mobile
enterprise apps and data against loss and leakage. Founded in 2011 (as
CellSec) by experienced enterprise security executives and engineers
from McAfee and Check Point Software, MobileSpaces is headquartered
outside of Washington, DC, has offices near Tel-Aviv, Israel, and is
backed by Accel Partners (News - Alert) and Marker LLC.
