SyncDog widens partnership with Palo Alto-based Kaonsoft, augmenting security capabilities for Kaonsoft’s mobile application development platform KEMP™ providing NIST-certified (cert. #2687) FIPS 140-2 encryption for data on devices and data in transit from device to datacenter.
Reston, VA, November 2, 2017 – SyncDog, Inc., the leading ISV for mobile application security, today announced an expanded integration partnership with mobile software solutions provider Kaonsoft. The agreement provides NIST-certified (cert. 2687), FIPs 140-2 encryption for data both at rest and in transit on employees’ mobile devices through SyncDog’s Secure.Systems™ containerized workspace, providing full device security for fully-functional mobile application development in KEMP™ (Kaonsoft Enterprise Mobility Platform). KEMP™ is an award-winning, holistic development architecture designed to facilitate the creation of mobile apps that meet burgeoning business demands.
“We’re excited to add even more data protection to KEMP™,” said Daniel Lee, Kaonsoft CEO. “With more companies needing to build apps in-house, MADP (mobile app development platform) is quickly becoming a standard for large-size enterprises.”
“This enhanced integration to the Kaonsoft/SyncDog product lines positions us well for future growth,” said Jonas Gyllensvaan, CEO and founder of SyncDog. “The partnership helps validate the market’s need for a secure and highly-functional mobile app container that is NIST-certified. We are working on similar integration enhancements with Microsoft and its Office 365 Enterprise product line, as well as other enterprise-sized software vendors.”
The simplicity of MADP has opened a new avenue to efficiency and is subsequently transforming app development business models across nearly every industry. In today’s digital ecosystem, mobile app development by “laymen” mobile developers often lacks security needed to protect data and intellectual property, yet business apps must still meet rigorous standards for security, scalability, and compliance. This is a difficult task that must be achieved without sacrificing the end-user functionality that made custom mobile app building a viable bottom-line proposition at the start.
SyncDog’s partnership with Kaonsoft leverages the Secure.Systems™ product as a secure environment in which organizations can use KEMP™ to develop bespoke enterprise applications tailored to their workflows and proprietary IP with little impact to the end-user experience. By adding device-level fortification with the Secure.Systems™ containerized workspace, KEMP™ will equip developers with all the essential tools and services needed to build, deploy, and manage mobile solutions in an environment free from the rising risk of mobile threat.
A recent study by Gartner showed that in 2015, about 60 percent of organizations were engaged in mobile app development and by 2016 that number had jumped to 73 percent. Gartner further predicts that by 2022, 70 percent of software interactions in enterprises will occur on mobile devices. This strategic partnership between Kaonsoft and SyncDog provides a solid foundation for organizations’ seeking the following elements of a robust MADP to drive mobile productivity and stimulate enterprise growth:
- Development flexibility: open-standard technology with virtually no vendor lock ensures that continuous improvements are implemented without any proprietary constraints or artificial barriers to deliver sustainable and configurable mobile solutions
- Security infrastructure for data protection:Systems™ containers provide FIPS 140-2 compliant and AES 256-bit encrypted mobile application security to safeguard sensitive, mission critical data both at rest on the device and in transit from device to datacenter.
- Cross-device compatibility for multiple operating systems: cross-platform development tools ensure that data from back-end systems and legacy applications are rapidly delivered to any mobile device to support CYOD and BYOD policies and can easily scale for growing needs
- Pre-built components for easy integration with backend systems: modular architecture of KEMP™ combined with a myriad of engines on the server side promote seamless integration with existing network systems and services to preserve and leverage existing enterprise assets
- Dashboard for actionable business insights: modern portal of KEMP™ provides contextual data and statistics on app usage to ascertain operational effectiveness and efficiencies
“KEMP™ is an enabling technology with the potential to modernize workplaces across industries. With 100+ individual UI templates, 70+ scenario-based templates and 30+ standalone application templates allowing for easy customization, KEMP™ has the potential to significantly improve many business practices” said Daniel J. Lee, Co-founder/CEO of Kaonsoft. “Organizations utilizing Kaonsoft and SyncDog powered mobile solutions can expect to see enhanced workflow with greater efficiency.”
