What’s Good? Mobile Device Management Tools with Military-Grade Security

In case you’ve been under a rock, modern mobilty is all about being productive everywhere.  As we also know, one of the greatest concerns in any business is security.  It’s obvious that these two forces work against each other in some ways.  Empowering your staff to be productive while on the go means the increased potential of exposing your company secrets.

For a long time, RIM’s Blackberry had a stranglehold on this market segment.  If you wanted secure email on the go, Blackberry was the answer.  However, the Canadian mobile maker has lagged behind the tech curve, and it looks like the market is finally catching up with them.  Increasingly, employees want to use their personal device for mobile productivity, but using personal devices for work presents a security risk for the business.  So, how can employees stay secure without having to carry a bunch of devices around with them, doing tasks based on which device can get the job done?

Enter Good for Enterprise.  Good for Enterprise is a suite of mobile device management tools with military-grade security for data loss prevention. Their collaboration features for iOS, Android, and Windows phone enable productivity without keeping your IT team up at night.

Built on a proven security architecture, Good for Enterprise has been adopted by top Fortune 500 companies and government agencies, including the Department of Defense. In fact, I noticed it because my boss uses it at Conde Nast.  I first saw it on his email sign off: “Sent with Good (www.good.com)”.

Good’s solution secures enterprise data and protects against potential enterprise data loss. With an advanced end-to-end 192-bit AES encryption and FIPS certification, Good promises secure access to enterprise data and applications.

An enterprise mobility strategy often involves many target devices over many networks and carriers.

A strategy of embracing employee-owned devices helps reduce costs for your business without losing security: an unbeatable combination.
