Symplified and Solstice to Address Mobile Security for Cloud Applications
BOULDER, Colo., Oct. 31, 2011 – Symplified®, the Cloud security company, today announced a partnership with Solstice Consulting, an emerging technologies systems integration firm, to address the growing need among enterprises to secure private and public cloud applications accessed using smartphones and tablets, many of which are personal devices. Solstice will provide customized mobile security implementations based on Symplified’s cloud identity and access management (IAM) service. Symplified Mobile Edition™ is the only available solution capable of extending IAM capabilities to mobile devices without the need to install any software on the endpoint.
The consumerization of IT, and its offspring BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), is making it extremely difficult for organizations to enforce security policies on applications accessed from employee-owned smartphones and tablets. In addition, the lack of an audit trail creates a compliance blind spot for companies in regulated industries. Meanwhile, end users are required to remember and enter separate login credentials for every cloud application they need to perform their jobs.
Symplified Mobile Edition addresses these challenges – in a completely innovative manner. Delivered as a cloud service, Symplified secures cloud and web applications on any mobile device, provides single sign-on, and creates a secure audit trail so that enterprises can safely make corporate data accessible on tablets and smartphones. This no software required solution can protect both company and employee owned devices. Solstice’s Mobile Security practice provides security architecture design for mobile web and native applications, integration services for IAM, application protection, vulnerability testing, and mobile data encryption.
“Symplified is the first company to extend cloud security policy enforcement and single sign-on to mobile platforms, making this a natural partnership for us,” said Peter Gyurko, mobile security practice lead for Solstice Consulting. “Together Solstice and Symplified will provide clients with comprehensive solutions for protecting corporate data accessed via cloud applications from smartphones and tablets.” “Solstice Consulting is one of the leading boutique consulting firms in the mobile security arena with specialized expertise in identity and access management,” said Mike Corbisiero, vice president of worldwide sales for Symplified. “Solstice will play an important role in assisting our joint customers with planning, implementation and sustainability services for cloud and mobile security solutions.”
