Good Technology Adds Secure Support for Box to Improve Mobile Content Management

Good Technology, a leader in secure Enterprise Mobility, has extended the mobile content management capabilities of its Good Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform to Box, a renowned enterprise content management and collaboration platform.

With this new capability, Good Work users will now be able to securely access Box content directly within the app container, optimising mobile workflows while adding layers of data security without requiring an additional application.

Support for Box will add to the comprehensive Good Dynamics platform to securely mobilise content for collaboration, which today includes Microsoft SharePoint and OneDrive as well as network file shares.

"Our customers rely on Good to enable enterprise-grade security across their workflows, enabling their users to share, manage and collaborate with content on the device and in the cloud," said Christy Wyatt, Chairman and CEO of Good Technology. "Good's expanded content management capabilities enable seamless and secure access to Box files directly from within any Good Dynamics application."

The new capabilities within Good Work won’t require any additional changes by IT administrators, maintaining existing Box accounts, document rights management and audit logs. Users will be able to download, view, bookmark and save files from Box and send links to files or folders via Good Work email.

Box files will also be available to view and edit online using Microsoft Web Apps in Good Access, and Microsoft files will be convertible to PDF without requiring a separate app. Good's integration of Box access will deliver holistic security and productivity for content access with a simplistic user experience accessible from Good Work or any Good Dynamics application.

"EMM solutions have gotten employees mobilised for most key business functions like email and calendar, but secure access to file repositories and content has been an area where most organisations are still evaluating strategies," said Maribel Lopez, Principal and Founder of Lopez Research. "Mobile workers are only going to be effective if they have easy access to the files they need on the devices of their choice, and add-on connectors to the EMM platform is one of the strategies that firms can use to securely and seamlessly deliver that capability."

Good Technology works to deliver solutions across all stages of the mobility lifecycle for enterprises and governments worldwide, offering a comprehensive, end-to-end solutions portfolio, consisting of a suite of collaboration applications, a secure mobility platform, mobile device management, unified monitoring, management and analytics, and a third-party application and partner ecosystem.
