Webalo Partners with Symantec to Protect Critical Enterprise Applications and Data Delivered in Minutes to Mobile Devices
LOS ANGELES --(Business Wire)--
Webalo, Inc., today announced a partnership with Symantec (News - Alert) Corp. to
include Webalo's cloud-based, self-service enterprise mobility platform
in the Symantec Sealed Program, which assures enterprise customers of
Symantec App Center that the apps they buy are protected in a
comprehensive data and mobile application security workspace providing
enterprise-class security, authentication, encryption, and content
Webalo's (News - Alert) technology, which uses a step-by-step, point-and-click
configuration process to create and deploy enterprise-to-mobile
capabilities in minutes, provides its own internal security, but as part
of the Symantec Sealed Program, Webalo will integrate Symantec's
security and management features, such as encryption, authentication,
data loss prevention policies, app distribution and revocation, into its
platform. As a Symantec Sealed partner, Webalo's technology is
integrated and tested to work with Symantec App Center, providing a
seamless and secure centralized mobile workforce productivity management
console as part of the Symantec Mobile Management Suite.
As a Symantec Sealed app, Webalo will be visible to enterprise customers
that are leveraging the Symantec App Center. Customers will then be able
to use a single enterprise mobility platform for securing and managing
apps, devices and content with confidence on both iOS and Android (News - Alert)
smartphones and tablets. Webalo will distribute the "Symantec Sealed"
version of its product on third-party platforms such as Apple's App
Store and Google (News - Alert) Play.
"The integration of Webalo's enterprise mobility platform with
Symantec's App Center will give corporate IT several things - the
security they must have together with the speed and simplicity they
didn't realize was possible for creating bi-directional, interactive
mobile access to the enterprise," said Peter Price, Co-Founder and Chief
Executive Officerof Webalo. "This new channel will provide Symantec
customers with an approach to enterprise mobility that's 100 times
faster and a fraction of the cost of traditional mobile application
"The Symantec Sealed Program allows our partners to include Symantec's
enterprise grade protection within their apps, giving IT organizations
integrated and seamless controls over their data without compromising
their user's experience on their mobile devices," said Chandra Rangan,
Senior Director of Product Marketing, Enterprise Mobility Group,
Symantec. "With Webalo as part of the Symantec Sealed Program, our
customers will have access to an innovative approach to enterprise
mobility to ensure a productive and agile mobile workforce. Symantec
customers will be able to easily deploy Webalo, which has been
integrated and pre-tested to work within their secure workspace with the
Symantec Mobile Management Suite."
Webalo is enterprise mobility the way it's meant to be - easy, fast, and
affordable. It can be configured in minutes to deliver secure,
interactive, bi-directional, transactional mobile access to the
enterprise applications, data, and real-time operational intelligence
employees rely on to do their jobs - all for pennies an app. It's 100x
faster than traditional mobile application development, a fraction of
the cost, simple enough for anyone to master, and powerful enough to let
users take action directly from their smartphones and tablets. Webalo
reduces the burden on IT, lowers overhead (by eliminating development
software, coding, consultants, and technologies for managing and
distributing mobile apps), extends the value of enterprise applications,
and leverages the full computing power of smartphones and tablets.
