ATLANTA & STERLING, Va.--()--AirWatch, the global leader in Enterprise Mobile Management (EMM), and Fixmo, a leading provider of defense-grade mobile security solutions, today announced a partnership that will see the two companies deliver integrated product offerings to meet the stringent compliance, data protection and application management needs of government agencies and customers in regulated markets. As a result of the partnership, customers can now deploy Fixmo SafeZone and Fixmo Sentinel Integrity Services as integrated components of the AirWatch EMM solution.
“It’s a very complex issue, and the partnership between AirWatch and Fixmo is a great leap in the right direction. ViaSat looks forward to leveraging the system to help government agencies deliver on this vision in 2013.”
Deployments of smartphones and tablets continue to expand within regulated industries such as Financial Services, Healthcare, and Federal Government—including the U.S. Department of Defense. Many organizations in these markets now face complex challenges related to corporate security and compliance as they look to deploy consumer-grade Apple iOS and Android devices for remote access to corporate email, sensitive business documents, Microsoft SharePoint, and mission-critical applications. Through the partnership announced today, AirWatch and Fixmo are teaming up to offer an integrated solution for end-to-end defense-grade mobility management, security, and compliance to address these challenges for customers in the public and private sector.
“Government agencies and regulated enterprises are facing unique security and compliance challenges as they embrace the latest mobile devices and look to empower employees with full access to business content no matter who owns the device,” said John Marshall, President and CEO, AirWatch. “In partnering with Fixmo, we’re addressing those challenges head-on by offering an end-to-end solution that brings together AirWatch’s industry-leading mobility management with Fixmo’s government-grade secure workspace, messaging, and integrity verification technologies.”
AirWatch is the global leader in mobile security and the largest Mobile Device Management (MDM) provider in the world. Fixmo SafeZone is the defense-grade secure workspace and messaging solution that keeps all corporate email, browsing, documents and apps securely contained from the personal side of a mobile device and protected with end-to-end FIPS 140-2 data encryption, two-factor authentication, and dynamic IT policy controls. Fixmo Sentinel Integrity Services is a patented integrity verification solution for detecting and preventing mobile device OS tampering, policy violations, and the presence of unverified third party apps.
“Government mobility is no longer about wireless email on BlackBerry devices—the real challenge is how to enable mobile employees to access all of the business apps and data they NEED on the devices they WANT, without compromising security, compliance, or the IT budget,” said Jon L. Korecki, Executive Director, ViaSat. “It’s a very complex issue, and the partnership between AirWatch and Fixmo is a great leap in the right direction. ViaSat looks forward to leveraging the system to help government agencies deliver on this vision in 2013.”
“As a trusted provider of mobile security solutions to government, we understand the unique requirements for no-compromise integrity and compliance whether you are deploying hardened business devices or consumer-grade tablets,” said Rick Segal, CEO, Fixmo. “By partnering with AirWatch, the global leader in MDM, we can now offer our defense-grade device integrity and secure workspace products as integrated components of an end-to-end solution for enterprise mobility management and compliance. This is a huge win for our respective customers and partners.”
AirWatch and Fixmo will be demonstrating their enterprise mobility management and security solutions at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and the RSA Conference in San Francisco from February 25th – 28th.
