Provides Customers with a Seamless User Experience While Enforcing Security and Corporate Policies
BOSTON – December 10, 2013 –Apperian, Inc., the leading platform for securing and managing enterprise mobile apps, today announced that it has joined the McAfee® Security Innovation Alliance™ (SIA) and is a member of the McAfee Sales Teaming Program (STP). As part of its participation in the McAfee SIA program, Apperian is integrating its mobile application management (MAM) solution with McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) platform.
The partnership enables integration between the McAfee ePO platform, a key component of McAfee’s security management offerings, and Apperian’s enterprise app catalog and mobile app management platform for corporate owned apps and data. By providing IT users with an integrated solution that delivers rock-solid mobile security and ensures compliance of the app and data without requiring an SDK or code modification, corporate apps and data are always protected and secured regardless of the device. With Apperian, mobile app security is practically invisible to users. This approach does not degrade the user experience and limits the incentives for users to find a work-around that may violate corporate policies or compliance initiatives. Customers utilizing Apperian and McAfee ePO can now launch the Apperian console directly from McAfee ePO platform and centrally manage app-based policies applied to enterprise apps to ensure mobile compliance across the organization. Additionally, visibility into the behavior of users and apps is displayed directly in the McAfee ePO administrator dashboard.
“We’re excited to partner with McAfee and continue to help ensure that enterprises are able to achieve mobile compliance initiatives by offering an unobtrusive and secure mobile application management solution,” said David Patrick, CEO of Apperian. “Apperian’s platform focuses exclusively on corporate owned apps and data rather than the device itself – which delivers a far better user experience while helping the IT security team effectively manage security and avoiding the risk of accidentally wiping out personal data from an employee’s mobile device.”
“We are pleased to add Apperian to the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance program,” said Ed Barry, vice president of the Security Innovation Alliance, McAfee. “The integration of Apperian’s MAM platform with McAfee ePO software enables our joint customers to secure and manage their mobile apps and data, and complements the McAfee Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution”
The McAfee ePO allows enterprises and governments to centrally manage security and compliance products from multiple vendors, offering unprecedented cost savings and return on investment. With more than 45,000 customers and managing more than 60 million PCs and servers, this unique platform is helping McAfee SIA partners extend their reach and create complementary functionality.
