SyncDog’s SentinelSecure™ mobile workspace for enterprise productivity applications such as Gmail, Office Suite, SharePoint, DropBox, local/enterprise instant messaging, Internet/Intranet browser and including email support for Microsoft Exchange, Office 365, and Novell GroupWise, holds full day-one compatibility the newly launched iOS 10.
Reston, VA, September 13, 2016 – SyncDog, Inc., the leading ISV for mobile application containerization, today announced its secure containerized application workspace for mobile devices and tablets supports the new Apple iOS 10 platform, released today. The iOS 10 launch comes just days before the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus devices ship to customers. In terms of iOS 10 compatibility, the new Apple operating system works with iPhone 5, iPad 3 and iPod touch 6th generation or higher.
“Our goals from day one have been mobile security, solution functionality and flexibility in architecture,” said Jonas Gyllensvaan, president and CEO of SyncDog. “In addition to building the industry’s most secure mobile workspace, we also had the foresight to understand that SentinelSecure™ needed to be highly interoperable for MDM and EMM connectivity. This approach has served us well for day-one operational support within a totally new OS such as Apple’s iOS 10.”
SyncDog’s announcement for support for iOS 10 comes on the heels of announcing the general availability of its flagship mobile app container SentinelSecure™ version 2.5, at CTIA Mobility Week in Las Vegas last week. SentinelSecure™ version 2.5 features a host of security enhancements including FIPS 140-2 certification, additional applications added to the secure mobile workspace, certified integration with MobileIron MDM (Mobile Device Management), and other Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) providers.
This newest build of SentinelSecure™ is fully compatible with iOS 10 and has been designed to address four main workflows for users accessing network file stores and applications from mobile sources:
- Secure Communications
- Secure File Management
- Secure Internet/Intranet Access
- Secure Location-based Services
NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) has certified that SyncDog’s encryption engine within the container meets Federal Information Processing Standards or FIPS 140-2 requirements (Cert. #2687). In a remarkable seven-week certification window, SyncDog worked closely with technology partner SafeLogic, using SafeLogic’s CryptoComply™ drop-in FIPS 140-2 compliance module to reach the FIPS milestone. Based in Palo Alto, California, SafeLogic provides innovative encryption products for applications in mobile, server, appliance, wearable, and other constrained environments.
