Good Technology Introduces Good Dynamics™ – The Most Comprehensive Security Platform for Mobile Application Development

  • Business can't wait - with Good Dynamics, apps will be securely developed and deployed faster than ever before

REDWOOD SHORES, CA, — October 11, 2011 — Good Technology, the leader in secure multiplatform enterprise mobility, today announced the release of Good Dynamics, a new security platform for mobile application development targeting developers of both enterprise and consumer applications. The massive adoption of tablets and smartphones has led to an explosion in iOS and Android app development. With this release, Good Technology extends the world-class security capabilities of its popular Good for Enterprise solution to the developers of mobile applications for these popular devices – ensuring all Good Dynamics-supported applications are built securely, quickly and cost effectively, and with the flexibility to deploy across multiple platforms.

Beginning today, current Good for Enterprise customers and new independent software vendors (ISVs) and system integrators (SIs) can register to join the Good Dynamics Developer Network program, which includes direct development access to the Good Dynamics SDK and NOC infrastructure, resources, and customer support they need to build and manage secure mobile applications.

"The pace and pressure that developers have been under to build apps as quickly as possible has made security an after-thought for many corporations. As a result, a lot of potentially great apps don’t pass the security test and never make it out the door," said Nicko van Someren, CTO of Good Technology. "Our enterprise customers have an urgent need to implement CRM, banking, expense or workflow management and various other applications for their employees. Now with Good Dynamics, developers can make use of our world-class encryption, authentication, and connectivity technology, leaving them free to concentrate on building apps to address their business needs."

Good is the leader in secure enterprise mobility with large deployments by enterprise customers including more than 50 of the Fortune 100. Partners in the Good Dynamics Early Access Program include Aji, Accellion, Box, GroupLogic, MeLLmo, Pyxis Mobile, Quickoffice and Unisys, as well as a number of Good’s enterprise customers in the financial services, government, healthcare, manufacturing and high tech sectors.

"Good Dynamics is the holy grail of security for applications and we are excited to be the first mobile enterprise application platform (MEAP) to integrate Good Dynamics into our offering," said Todd Christy, CTO of Pyxis Mobile. "We've enhanced the Pyxis mobile app development platform with Good Dynamics to empower our customers to develop apps with a whole new level of secure connectivity, storage and centralized management. Together, we are allowing global corporations to build, deploy, and manage their mobile apps with the most comprehensive and secure platform available on the market."

Good Dynamics is easy to implement. Developers simply plug Good Dynamics' code libraries into their applications to create a secure “container” around the application and all of the data it holds and accesses. Good Technology maintains the Network Operating Center (NOC) infrastructure, resources and support staff, which eliminates the need for customers to add systems, space, and people. Unlike other approaches that use VPN solutions, which open access to a company’s corporate network, Good Dynamics secures applications and data end-to-end. In the event of a security breach, businesses can simply kill the Good Dynamics-enabled application without compromising music, photos, and other personal data present on the mobile device.

"Unisys custom mobile applications provide a multi-faceted security solution using Good Dynamics. By integrating Good Dynamics with our mobile applications, Unisys was able to enforce secure device policy, integrate with Active Directory, and provide secure data transmission and storage," said Kurt Gerstner, VP of Application Modernization Center of Excellence for Unisys. "Unisys's experience in modifying our mobile applications to run in Good Dynamics' secure container can help clients complete securing their mobile apps in weeks."
