Echoworx and Mformation to support encryption on mobile devices

ATLANTA & EDISON, USA: Echoworx, a leading provider of credential management and managed encryption services for complete email and data protection and Mformation, the leading global provider of mobile device management (MDM) technology, are pleased to announce a new reseller partnership; Mformation will be adding Echoworx’ mobilEncrypt ENDPOINT solutions for mobile to its mobile device management (MDM) offerings.

Michael Ginsberg, CEO for Echoworx, said: “Mobile security has become a major focus as employees embrace BYOD (bring your own device) and organizations try to secure the explosive growth of corporate information being accessed by mobile device users. With the Echoworx Platform, Mformation can now bridge the gap between MDM and encryption solutions for their customers, as the encryption application can be downloaded and activated without having to retrofit devices or go through complex setups.”

“Mobility is maturing into a business-critical part of the enterprise. Device management, security and encryption are core components of the enterprise mobility solution space,” said Todd DeLaughter, Mformation’s CEO. “Mformation and Echoworx solutions have flexible architectures, enabling them to easily integrate together. The combination of these solutions ensures that data on the mobile device is both secure and able to be managed. This is a compelling offer for enterprises as well as for organizations that serve the enterprise, such as Managed Service Providers.”

Mformation Enterprise Manager enables MSPs to provide a secure, customized mobile management environment to their enterprise customers, giving enterprise IT managers direct control of the handsets used by their employees, ranging from the latest Android and iOS devices to other smart mobile devices and computing devices. The solution works across all of the key mobile device platforms used in the enterprise, meeting a critical enterprise IT requirement. The Mformation solution helps enterprise customers to manage all phases of the mobile device and application lifecycle.

With mobilEncrypt ENDPOINT, iPhone, iPad and BlackBerry users can compose, send, download and receive secure, encrypted messages through their existing business email account. No additional components are required, since the application creates a native email experience. IT managers for their part can centrally manage the infrastructure “over-the-air” and assign user credentials, as well as revoke or suspend them if a device gets lost or stolen.

The solution is backed by a comprehensive public key infrastructure (PKI) credential management platform and globally recognized Certificate Authority. An Android version is scheduled for release this fall.
