Containerization vs App Wrapping vs MDM

Many organizations have traditionally relied upon Mobile Device Management (MDM) to protect and manage devices by forcing password policies, restricting access to applications, and having the ability to wipe the device. As cyber-attacks become more sophisticated, this approach has failed to sufficiently secure the data being sought after on the device. Organizations looking to stay ahead of the threats need to incorporate advanced data encryption tactics to protect the sensitive corporate or government related data being accessed, used, and stored on employee’s mobile devices. The two most common approaches are App Wrapping or Containerization.

Cloud vs On-Premise vs Hybrid

There are some industry standards and government regulations that require corporations or government agencies to implement an on-premise solution. While other industries and government agencies have the flexibility to choose to host everything in a cloud environment. An on-premise implementation is one where the servers reside within an organization’s premises giving full visibility and control of the hardware, data and crypto keys to the data owners, where as a cloud implementation, a third-party hosts the hardware and often administers the set up and connectivity.

SyncDog vs BlackBerry

Blackberry’s initial promise of advanced mobile security by encrypting data in a device independent secure container has fallen far short of its goals. Government agencies, large corporations and numerous other organizations are rapidly abandoning their Blackberry environments based on difficulties and delays in set up, low user adoption due to non-intuitive user experiences, as well as difficulties in management and maintenance of the solution. This is because of most of the product acquisitions that were made over the years, have not been integrated into a single solution set. SyncDog is now the go-to solution for organizations in both the public and private sectors who rely on mobile device usage across its employee base yet need to ensure their internal and customer related data is always secure.
