A containerized workspace that is bolstered with strong encryption, such as 256-bit AES compliant with the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2, can allow organizations to keep business and personal data separate on either iOS or Android devices. Furthermore, It will protect business data even if a device itself is compromised, and if a remote wipe of corporate data is required, it can be done without erasing a user’s personal data – guaranteed.
A container can host productivity applications tailored for mobile use, from office suites and collaboration apps, to file management applications and location-based services such as geo-location. Applications such as Office 365, Skype for Business, SharePoint and File Sync — to name just a few — can function and collaborate securely in a defense-grade container.
Flexibility is also an important factor in mobile security, with the ability to be deployed via the cloud, including hybrid clouds, as well as on-premises and to be run on Apple or Android devices.
Security is never easy, but it doesn’t have to come with a trade-off in productivity. An isolated, containerized environment can protect data and guard user privacy while enhancing usability. It can simplify security by separating applications into a secure workspace without separating users from their devices. And most importantly, it can do it without slowing down the pace of business.
