On Tuesday, Good Technology, a provider of secure mobility solutions, unveiled at Mobile World Congress 2015 its support for the rapidly expanding ecosystem of connected things and wearables on the Good Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform.
According to the company’s formal announcement, Good is the only enterprise mobility management (EMM) vendor mobilizing apps and content for secure access on wearables.
Good Dynamics enables security and protection of business data accessed by and stored on wearables and shared between other Good-secured apps. Good is also enabling a new era of productivity with access to corporate email and calendars on paired wearable devices through Good Work.
Reps for Good Technology say the Internet of Things represents the “next frontier for secure mobility, extending beyond smartphones and tablets to include connected cars, smart meters, vending machines, wearables and other non-traditional connected devices in the enterprise.”
By all accounts, the lofty projections are the now the industry consensus. IDC estimates that the installed and connected base of IoT units will reach approximately 30 billion in 2020.
And “the impact on the enterprise will be huge,” says Good Technology.
“As more connected devices proliferate across the enterprise, it’s imperative to understand the implications they present so that organizations can permit increased employee productivity without endangering sensitive data,” explains Christy Wyatt, chairman and CEO of Good Technology. “Good has a long history of innovation and securing data across a large ecosystem of devices.”
