SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
Neohapsis, the trusted provider of mobile and cloud security services,
and enterprise mobile security leader Mocana (News - Alert) today announced a new
partnership to help corporations rapidly identify and mitigate app

agreement, Neohapsis will combine Mocana's patent-pending Mobile App
Protection™ (MAP™) solution, which accelerates mobility deployments by
automating app security, with Neohapsis' mobile app assessment, threat
profiling, code analysis and secure development lifecycle (SDLC)

enterprises worldwide through industrial-grade FIPS 140-2 encryption,
VPN and other top-tier security capabilities, all of which can be
The Neohapsis approach to achieving compliance with mobile app
deployments currently benefits more than 100 global enterprises,
including complex requirements involving Payment Card Industry (PCI (News - Alert)),
HIPAA-HITECH and DIACAP. The company also helps organizations implement
numerous best practice frameworks, such as ISO 27001/27002, assess audit
readiness, and manage remediation. Neohapsis is a PCI Qualified Security
Assessor (QSA), Payment Application Qualified Security Assessor (PA-DSS
QSA), and Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV).
Mocana's MAP offering will be combined with Neohapsis offerings through
usage and security policies built into Apple iOS and Google Android (News - Alert)
mobile apps. The MAP solution cuts the development work required per app
from weeks to just a few seconds. Once wrapped, the corporate data
residing within the apps is protected regardless of where it travels.
The MAP layer is largely invisible to end users, who can continue to
work exactly as they did before MAP was applied. At the same time,
Neohapsis customers can work with MAP to customize policies around
authentication, FIPS 140-2 encryption, and per-app VPN, ensurig
lifecycle data security through every kind of use and situation.
"Our aim at Neohapsis is to enable enterprises to take advantage of the
opportunities presented by emerging technologies such as cloud and
mobile while efficiently and effectively managing security and
regulatory issues," said James Mobley, president & CEO, Neohapsis.
"Addressing these complex challenges directly impacts business
performance via improved risk reduction, cost savings and compliance."
Mobley continued: "Combining the Mocana MAP solution with our portfolio
of proven services, allows us to provide customers with a higher level
of protection for every app, regardless of where they're developed and
used. This is the kind of security, flexibility and ease of deployment
organizations need as emerging technologies become increasingly
integrated into the enterprise architecture."
Neohapsis has also joined Mocana's new MAP
Developers' Program, which was unveiled at the RSA (News - Alert) Conference in
March. The program offers free tools, technical support and co-marketing
opportunities for developers building mobile apps for security-conscious
enterprise customers. Neohapsis' own iOS and Android apps will display
the "MAP-READY" logo to highlight those that have been tested and ready
to secure with Mocana MAP.
"By combining Neohapsis' unmatched service portfolio with the Mocana MAP
solution, global enterprises can benefit from a greatly enhanced level
of security and ease of deployment," said Adrian Turner (News - Alert), CEO of Mocana.
"This is the best way to manage the complex issues associated with
managing security, risk and compliance, and we're privileged to partner
with Neohapsis in taking this offering to market."
