  • Good Technology solutions used by Raiffeisen Informatik Center Steiermark in Austria since mid- 2011
  • Enables easy separation of business-related and personal data

Berlin, Germany / Graz, Austria — March 12, 2012 — The number of employees using mobile devices at work is constantly increasing. In parallel with the growth in smartphones, companies are faced with more and more IT administration due to security, performance management and support issues. Against this backdrop, the Raiffeisen Informatik Center Steiermark, an IT full service provider and subsidiary of the Austrian regional bank group Raiffeisen Landesbank Steiermark, has partnered with Good Technology, the leading provider of secure, managed enterprise mobility for a range of mobile devices. The partnership enables the data center to make considerable progress towards ensuring data security for its employees' mobile platforms.

"The biggest challenge for us is to combine compliance with the banking industry's stringent security regulations, our internal Raiffeisen security policies, and the best possible user experience," says Ulfried Paier, director of the data center. Just one of the reasons why the company chose and implemented Good Technology's solution mid-2011 was that it encrypts and stores corporate data in a secure container within a password-protected app. In addition, the use of push technology makes a significant contribution to compliance with the data center's security policies.

"The integration of smartphones into our company's communications network has established a benchmark for the secure operation of mobile devices," explains Dietmar Schlar, director of the data center. As a result, the data center has taken on a pioneering role within the Raiffeisen group in Austria. The data center is currently looking at extending the solution to its other customers.

Commenting on the advantages of this platform-independent technology, Tobias Blecher, Strategic Account Manager at Good Technology, says: "At a time when mobility is an important success factor for companies, it is more important than ever to integrate mobile devices into the security infrastructure right from the outset. This can be achieved using solutions that enable seamless, platform-independent administration and security."

Good Technology's solutions allow companies to easily separate business-related and private data, giving staff at firms of any size the freedom to choose their own mobile device. The solutions also deliver additional benefits, such as low operating costs, enhanced user productivity, and increased staff satisfaction.
