London, UK, October 11, 2014: LANDESK, a global player in delivering user-oriented IT solutions that solve systems, assets, security, mobility and IT service management challenges, today announced the release of new features and upgrades to its Enterprise Mobility Management platform, including an application wrapping feature. This new feature will allow IT departments to add another layer of security to the enterprise apps they supply to their users.
“We strive to provide users with the most intuitive and easy-to-understand products available,” said Stephen Brown, director of product management at LANDESK. “While most application wrapping software is quite cumbersome, our solution allows an IT administrator to wrap an application in one step and deploy it to users. We know this simplicity will improve the productivity of the IT managers and their user base to help them focus on the important tasks they need to accomplish.”
LANDESK application wrapping makes it easy to incorporate mobile application security into corporate bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies. It uses single sign-on authentication to make access to the enterprise applications simple and to foster increased user productivity. It also encrypts data, preventing it from moving to applications not provided by the enterprise. This feature also makes it easy for IT to add security features and can be used for any Android app and enterprise iOS apps.
LANDESK Mobility Manager helps IT managers balance users’ needs to be productive anywhere with IT’s charter to provide secure mobility. With the BYOD-friendly LANDESK approach, IT teams gain confidence that 1) security measures are in place to consistently safeguard corporate data enterprise-wide and 2) mobile users benefit from a solution that respects the personal nature of their devices.
