This latest partnership with Kaonsoft, a software company known for providing complete end-to-end solutions for enterprise mobility, will lead to more secure app development and faster mobile app deployments for SyncDog customers.
Reston, VA, September 10, 2015 – SyncDog, Inc., the leading ISV for mobile application containerization, today announced its unique partnership with Kaonsoft, the leading provider of out-of-box mobility as a service, or MaaS. The partnership integrates the SyncDog SentinalSecure™ workspace with the award-winning Kaonsoft Enterprise Mobility Platform Meerue™. Designed to deliver higher levels of mobile security, Meerue™ allows mobile application developers to more easily test mobile applications, and then securely and quickly deploy them into the field. The partnership is significant and addresses the shortcomings of marketplace testing for mobile applications, a problem recently addressed in a Gartner press release that reports more than 75 percent of mobile applications will fail basic security tests.”
“Kaonsoft is proud to collaborate with Sync Dog to secure mobile solutions built on the Kaonsoft Enterprise Mobility Platform,” said Daniel Lee, co-founder and CTO of Kaonsoft. “Partnering with SyncDog assures our mobile solutions are secured at the proper levels for the most security-conscious enterprise organizations in the world, including those like the Department of Defense, the financial services industry, the healthcare industry and many others.”
The Kaonsoft Platform™ will allow SyncDog customers to develop mobile applications in a secure, “sterilized” environment and then deploy the apps – as a managed service – directly into SyncDog’s SentinelSecure™, or bundled into a SentinelSecure™ installation. The SentinelSecure™ mobile container will then provide a secure wrapper around the applications and deliver military-grade protection of both data at rest and in transit (FIPS 140-2, AES 256-bit encryption). The combined offering secures client messaging, productivity applications and file data into a single encrypted location that is policy-controlled and administrator-managed.
“We are excited to announce our partnership with Kaonsoft,” said Jonas Gyllensvaan, SyncDog president and CEO. “Studies have shown, and confirmed by Gartner, that mobile applications are often not developed with security in mind. Our customers can rest assured knowing that applications developed on the Kaonsoft platform and deployed within our SentinalSecure™ container, receive the proper isolation and protection for better risk management.”
