New Version of Mocana Mobile App Protection Solution Secures iOS 7, Android Apps
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
Solidifying its lead in the mobile enterprise security market, Mocana (News - Alert)
today announced an enhanced version of its industry-leading Mobile App
Protection™ (MAP™) solution, the first commercially available app
wrapping security solution for iOS 7 apps (www.mocana.com/map).
The new MAP version 2.5.6 enables enterprises to add strong security
features to iOS 7 apps in seconds, and enhances Mocana's Secure
Enterprise Browser with additional configurability and single sign-on
(SSO) capabilities. These features secure enterprise apps and data more
effectively than competing approaches, especially when a device is
jailbroken or infected with malware.
In addition to SSO, MAP version 2.5.6 enhances secure mobile browsing
with support for government Suite B algorithms and expanded VPN gateway
interoperability with additional RFC support. These enhancements help
enterprises provide seamless access to sensitive data across all of
their Android (News - Alert)™ and iOS devices, even those not managed by a mobile
device management (MDM) solution. New MAP capabilities are deployed
without requiring enterprise IT to write a single line of code,
integrate an SDK, or be a security expert.
"Mocana is excited by the direction that Apple (News - Alert) is taking with iOS 7. Our
new release of MAP builds on these advances to provide the extra
protection our enterprise customers need," said Kurt Stammberger, CISSP,
vice president of market development at Mocana.
iOS 7 apps and their data are vulnerable when a device is jailbroken
because those apps rely on a system-level keychain and communications
stack. MAP wraps its own keychain and TCP/IP stack directly into
enterprise apps, making them much tougher to crack. Furthermore, MAP's
app wrapping enables true per app VPNs, which go beyond iOS 7's built-in
capabilities. Per app VPNs enable apps to launch separate, simultaneous
encrypted tunnels that terminate at the individual app instead of at the
The secure enterprise browser in MAP version 2.5.6 can also be used with
Android devices. In addition to introducing SSO and customization, MAP's
robust security features include FIPS 140-2 data-at-rest encryption, per
app VPN capability, copy/paste protections, and data wipe. With this
latest version of MAP, enterprises can easily balance browser
functionality, such as disabling externalsites, with browser security.
Enterprises can deploy the browser across an extended enterprise in a
kiosk mode, where it is pinned to a single site, or they can customize
the browser to provide one-click access to multiple web apps and
intranet sites for employees.
The capabilities in MAP 2.5.6 enable enterprises to give employees and
partners access to sensitive enterprise content on networks, Sharepoint
servers, corporate intranet sites, web apps, and portals in just
minutes, while still protecting data. Enterprises can securely mobilize
sensitive internal data, even to devices not managed on their MDM
