Securing mobile apps, data
Mocana has unveiled an enhanced version of Mobile App Protection, which the company says is the first commercially available app wrapping security solution for iOS 7 apps. MAP Version 2.5.6 enables enterprises to add strong security features to iOS 7 apps in seconds and enhances Mocana's Secure Enterprise Browser with additional configurability and single sign-on (SSO) capabilities. According to the company, these features secure enterprise apps and data more effectively than competing approaches, especially when a device is jailbroken or infected with malware.
In addition to SSO, Version 2.5.6 enhances secure mobile browsing with support for government Suite B algorithms and expanded virtual private network gateway interoperability with additional request for comments support. These features are designed to help enterprises provide seamless access to sensitive data across all of their Android and iOS devices, even those not managed by a mobile device management (MDM) solution. The secure enterprise browser in MAP Version 2.5.6 can also be used with Android devices.
In addition to introducing SSO and customization, MAP’s robust security features include FIPS 140-2 data-at-rest encryption, per app VPN capability, copy/paste protections and data wipe. With this latest version of MAP, enterprises can balance browser functionality, such as disabling external sites, with browser security. Enterprises can deploy the browser across an extended enterprise in a kiosk mode, where it is pinned to a single site, or they can customize the browser to provide one-click access to multiple Web apps and intranet sites for employees.
