MobileIron for Android Allows BlackBerry Customers to Migrate Securely
MobileIron has announced new capabilities to accelerate the adoption of Android in the enterprise.
The MobileIron for Android solution already provides a broad set of capabilities for data loss prevention (DLP), network access control (NAC), and identity and access management (IAM). The Q4 2013 launch of MobileIron for Android adds:
- FIPS 140-2
FIPS 140-2 defines the appropriate cryptographic standards to protect data at rest and data in motion in public sector and regulated environments. MobileIron's use of FIPS 140-2 cryptographic libraries for Android has now been validated by an accredited Cryptographic and Security (CST) laboratory in full compliance with the Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP).
- Samsung KNOX
MobileIron is one of the initial commercial licensees of the Samsung KNOX platform, and now offers production support for KNOX containerization. High security organizations will find KNOX an attractive destination for their enterprise mobility needs.
- Secure Single Sign On
MobileIron now offers secure single sign on (SSO) support for both web and native applications on Android. The app or browser presents an identity certificate to the MobileIron Sentry intelligent access gateway. Sentry uses Kerberos Constrained Delegation (KCD) to get a Kerberos ticket that allows a secure connection to be established to the enterprise so that the app or browser can access enterprise resources without the employee needing to sign in each time.
