Symplified and AirWatch Partner to Integrate Mobile Enterprise Identity Technology Into Enterprise Mobility Management
ATLANTA – September 11, 2013 – AirWatch®, the largest Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) provider, and Symplified, the leader in Identity as a Service for the hybrid cloud, today announced a partnership to make it easier for businesses to manage application access across native mobile, cloud and on-premises applications and maintain compliance in today’s BYOD world. The announcement was made during AirWatch Connect Atlanta 2013, the leading event for enterprise mobility.
Through their new partnership, Symplified and AirWatch will provide single sign-on and user provisioning capabilities pre-integrated into the AirWatch enterprise mobility platform, which can be deployed on premise or in the cloud. AirWatch customers will have centralized control over mobile security and application usage, as well as complete visibility into how mobile, cloud and on-premises applications are being used. With the centralized management console, IT departments can also remotely authenticate and authorize users, manage access and usage policies, and audit activity.
“AirWatch and Symplified share a common goal of helping businesses manage and secure the mobile devices and applications that have become critical to their daily operations,” said John Marshall, president and CEO, AirWatch. “Partnering with Symplified allows us to deliver increased value to our customers and enables us to differentiate in an increasingly dynamic market.”
