Mocana Rolls Out New Capabilities for Mobile App Protection (MAP)

SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--

Mocana (News - Alert), the leader in mobile app and smart device security, today announced release of the latest version of its Mobile App Protection™ (MAP) software, which features enhanced security for Android (News - Alert) devices, advanced authentication and remediation capabilities and overall greater flexibility in meeting the security requirements of business at scale across the landscape of enterprise applications. Mocana also announced that the company won the prestigious "Vendor to Watch" award at the M3 Mobility xChange conference, held last month in San Diego.

"The biggest obstacle to enterprise mobility is not device management, it's applying enterprise grade application security in a timely manner to meet the business objectives of the organization," said Mike Siegel, VP Products at Mocana. "MAP accelerates mobile app deployment by separating app security from app development, which simplifies operational complexities and addresses security in a scalable way. It's simply not practical to expect app developers to meet the best-in-class or varying security policies of each enterprise."

This latest release of Mocana MAP introduces a host of new app-wrapping security policies:

  • Enhanced security for Android - Rooting (aka "jailbreak") detection and per-application VPN support on Android (in addition to iOS).
  • Enhanced authentication and remediation options - Extended and enhanced user authentication options through complex per-app passcodes, passcode expiration, failed authentication lock-out and help-desk assisted passcode reset. Addition of customizable end user acceptance agreements.
  • Greater flexibility in establishing application security baselines - Allows IT to individualize security as needed for user groups and data sensitivity by enabling organizations to "toggle" true FIPS 140-2 encryption on or off.
  • Secure data sharing between individually wrapped apps -Enables secured applications to pass data between themselves, fully encrypted, on the same handset.
  • Time-based access control policies - Creates a time-limited access window to the application for employees or contractors.

"Mocana was the standout vendor at the M3 Mobility xChange conference, and MAP is a refreshing take on mobile application security that uniquely addresses the cost, complexity and time-to-market problems that would otherwise create a bottleneck in enterprise mobile application deployments," said Rodney Johnson, Head of Mobile Practice - Channels for CapGemini and M3 Mobility xChange Advisory Board Member. "Mocana clearly solves a pressing business issue recognized by the senior IT executives at the conference, as they overwhelmingly selected Mocana for the 'Vendor to Watch' award."

MAP's application wrapping technology enables enterprises and developers to quickly secure applications without any rewrites, simplifying large-scale app deployments in today's complex and expanding multi-platform BYOD environments. MAP offers market-critical security features to protect company information such as per-application VPN capabilities and FIPS 140-2 encryption both on iOS or Android. While many alternative approaches require modification of the application source code, Mocana eliminates this risky and complicated step by securing mobile applications in seconds without access to source code. The result is a Self-Defending App™ that provides data protection and IT control for enterprise apps on both managed and unmanaged devices.

Organizations can establish flexible and unique security policies for different combinations of apps and users, and use MAP to establish scalable and certifiable processes for making mobile apps operational. MAP makes it easier and faster for lines of business to adopt mobile applications that can positively impact business operations and results. Homegrown mobile apps as well as those developed by third parties can be secured with best-in-class cryptography and robust security policies designed to pass even the most stringent of compliance standards. At the same time, Mocana MAP is largely invisible to end-users; apps work as they did before MAP was applied.

MAP is available now on subscription or perpetual license basis. Contact for pricing information or a quote.
