Druva Brings Endpoint Data Backup & Governance to MobileIron Ecosystem
Druva, provider of the #1-analyst-rated inSync endpoint data protection and governance platform, announced today that it has joined the MobileIron AppConnect ecosystem. The technology partnership enables organizations using MobileIron for enterprise mobility management (EMM) to seamlessly deploy and manage inSync to backup, sync/share and control data housed on smartphones and tablets. inSync also provides the same capabilities for an enterprise’s laptops and desktops, delivering a single solution for securing all data housed outside the corporate firewall.
MobileIron, a leader in security and management for mobile apps, documents and devices, provides its AppConnect technology to third-party mobile app developers. With AppConnect-enabled apps, companies can provide the third-party application experiences their employees want, with apps that have been enabled with auto-configuration, data containerization and secure tunneling to protect corporate data.
Integration between inSync and MobileIron allows IT teams to deploy inSync via AppConnect for all smart devices, establish and enforce a single set of data loss prevention (DLP) policies that apply to both platforms from the MobileIron administrative console, and take advantage of additional MobileIron security features such as PIN enforcement and cross-app data exchange controls to enhance inSync’s data protection abilities.
Linking the two solutions also gives MobileIron users easy access to inSync's full range of endpoint data capture, file sharing and governance benefits. That includes rapid data recovery in the event a mobile device is lost or stolen as well as remote access to any file or folder from any device, both enabled by inSync's centralized repository of backed-up files; automatic data synchronization between devices and users to ensure availability of the latest content; secure IT-controlled file sharing that avoids the loss of control associated with consumer-grade file sharing services; and support for eDiscovery, compliance and forensics needs through inSync's complete, searchable historical record of end user data.
"For enterprises that have deployed MobileIron, this partnership offers an opportunity to add full-featured mobile data management to their existing mobile device and app management capabilities using AppConnect's streamlined configuration and extensive app security functionality," said Chandar Venkataraman, Chief Product Officer at Druva. "We also see this partnership as the first step in enabling enterprises to regain complete visibility and control of their mobile data and helping them address their increasing concern about mobile data governance."
"The ability to backup mobile data is critical because of the massive volume of corporate information that resides only on employee devices today. Druva is the first member of our AppConnect ecosystem to provide endpoint backup and offer an integrated backup, file sharing and governance solution," said Sean Convery, Vice President of Product Management, MobileIron. "This integration furthers our mission of bringing customers best-of-breed solutions that allow them to leverage an entire industry of mobile innovation through their AppConnect deployments."
inSync for MobileIron is available immediately for iOS devices. An Android version will follow shortly.
