Good Technology expands mobile collaboration capabilities

Enterprise mobility software vendor, Good Technology, has expanded its mobile collaboration capabilities to include two new offerings – Good Share and Good Connect.
Good Technology introduced the solutions as it aims to complement businesses’ BYOD and BYOA strategies.
Good Share was released following the company’s acquisition of secure file sharing provider, Copiun, last month. It enables businesses with a secure mobile share access, without the need for virtual private networks (VPNs). It provides instant syncing of the most current versions of documents on a mobile device.
Good Connect enables mobile instant messaging by routing instant messages from behind the firewall, to mobile devices without compromising a business network.
Good Technology Asia-Pacific vice-president and corporate general manager, Jim Watson, said the solutions are further enhancements of its mobile collaboration suite, which develops the mobile app ecosystem across all platforms.
“The first problem we solve is enterprises trying to move from BlackBerry to non-BlackBerry in a secure fashion. The other is that companies are trying to implement BYOD and Good allows companies to do that and thirdly, it helps to secure applications that people download,” he said.
According to Watson, its offerings work across iOS, Android and Windows and the company is working with Microsoft to integrate it with the Windows 8 platform.
He claimed that Good will also be launching version 2.0 of its Good Dynamics solution, which will aid third party vendors in the enterprise space.
“They are able to launch their own apps secured by Good. Companies across all industries are looking to extend productivity beyond the four walls of the office through the delivery of mobile applications,” Watson said.
He attributed a recent study by Gartner, which showed enterprise app stores and marketplaces are one of this year’s hottest technology trends, with Forrester predicting the app market will generate $56 billion in revenue by 2015.
With the product portfolio, Good is targeting verticals such as banking, government agencies and healthcare.
The company also recently signed on Express Data as its distributor in A/NZ, acquired AppCentral in order to extend the capabilities of its Good Dynamics platform and named Nicholas Harris as its Asia-Pacific solution engineering director.
Good’s solution portfolio is available from Express Data in A/NZ.
