Mocana Names Tech Veteran James Isaacs Chief Operating Officer
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
Mocana (News - Alert), the application security leader, today announced that it has
appointed James Isaacs as chief operating officer. With more than twenty
years of high technology executive management experience at companies
including Apple, Concentric (News - Alert) Networks and Danger, Isaacs will assume
responsibility for Mocana sales, marketing, business development and
customer success operations.
"Mocana has staked out a leadership position in a field with tremendous
potential as organizations enter the third era of enterprise mobility
and begin to think differently about how they secure their information
and manage their users," said James Isaacs, COO for Mocana. "Mocana's
data-centric Mobile App Protection™ (MAP™) solution enables
organizations to focus on securing data instead of devices."
According to Isaacs, BYOD is just the tip of the iceberg, and a much
larger group of individuals- the extended enterprise - who are not
employees, but rather customers, contractors, partners, consultants and
others affiliated with the enterprise, are demanding access to
enterprise data. As a result, enterprise applications need to be able t
defend themselves wherever they end up, whether on a corporate device or
on an unmanaged, jail-broken or infected consumer handset.
"James brings a wealth of experience to Mocana from fast-paced
technology companies, and we welcome him to our executive management
team," said Adrian Turner (News - Alert), chief executive officer of Mocana. "James'
track record and field operations leadership experience will be
invaluable to Mocana as it embarks on the next phase of its growth
strategy, and we look forward to his success in this new position."
Mocana, the industry's most trusted application security provider, has
pioneered the application protection technology known as app wrapping.
The Mocana MAP solution accelerates wide-scale deployment of enterprise
mobile apps by easily and reliably adding a security shield to any app
in seconds, regardless of device platform, and without the need to write
any code. With its data-centric model of security, Mocana MAP helps
companies meet the challenges of the third era of enterprise mobility by
enabling enterprise IT to maintain security of sensitive data across a
broad range of devices and apps.
Mocana unlocks the extended mobile enterprise and simplifies wide-scale
deployments by securing apps automatically, in seconds. The company's
Mobile Application Protection (MAP) app-shielding solution, distributed
globally by SAP (News - Alert), mitigates the complexities of mobile management, while
freeing developers from tedious and expensive security coding. Launched

Pioneer, Mocana is the app security expert, with deep expertise born
from a decade of experience securing mission- and life-critical embedded
devices across the Internet of Things: from mobile handsets to medical
