Yesterday we announced our new mobilEcho 3.7, which includes our much-anticipated Good Dynamics integration. There are a number of reasons why our work with Good Technology is very important to customers and I thought I would explain some of them:

1. Integration is good (pun intended) – Both Good Technology and GroupLogic are focused on providing customers with secure and managed enterprise mobility functionality. With Good Dynamics integration, customers can now have seamless and secure access to files while the Good Dynamics container provides a secure ecosystem of enterprise apps. Customers can enjoy both without any hassles.
2. FIPS-certified crypto – this is especially relevant for Federal customers here in the United States but other non-Federal organizations and companies take notice of this as well. And, this goes without saying almost, encryption on the device and in transit is paramount.
3. Support for BYOD – the combination of Good Dynamics and mobilEcho can accelerate BYOD initiatives as companies can now provide employees with a work container that secures files and content for the organization, while not impacting any of the employee’s personal apps and data. If an employee leaves, or a device is lost/stolen, the IT administrator simply wipes the mobilEcho app and/or all the other apps with the Good Dynamics environment remotely.
4. Ease of deployment – it’s easy to deploy mobilEcho within the Good Dynamics environment. This makes it as frictionless as possible.

We have already seen a tremendous response from customers on this and expect to hear more. If you want to learn more about mobilEcho 3.7 and the Good Dynamics integration you can watch this video. Or take a look at the data sheet here.

Today we announced a new development and marketing partnership with Good Technology where GroupLogic’s secure Mobile File Management (MFM) solution mobilEcho™ will support integration with the Good Dynamics™ platform. Joint customers will be able to deploy mobilEcho within the Good Dynamics environment. This follows Good Technology’s announcement of their early ISV partners for their Good Dynamics platform.  Good Dynamics is a new security platform for mobile application development targeting developers of both enterprise and consumer applications. We are one of the early adopters of the plaform, and are already working closely with them to ensure that mobilEcho runs simply and securely within the Good Dynamics environment.

There are several reasons why this relationship, and others like it, is important for enterprises. First, this announcement, and others, show that what has appeared to me to be a fairly fragmented market with many, many vendors is further embracing the notion of the ecosystem and its importance. Enterprises do not want 10s (or even 100s) of disparate pieces of mobility software running in their enterprise and on their mobile clients. They want integration which simplifies management and maintains security. Second, it reinforces the idea that Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Mobile File Management (MFM) are complementary and the foundation of any enterprise mobility strategy. This is what we are hearing from customers every day especially those enterprises that are starting to take a long term view of what they want to do with mobility and the significant impact that will have on how their employees use mobility in their every day worklife. Said more simply, we are only at the beginning.

If you are interested in seeing more on what we are doing with Good Technology and Good Dynamics, we also did a video showing how mobilEcho works within the Good Dynamics platform. This was shown last at the CTIA show in San Diego at an event that Good was hosting. It can also be seen here on our website.
