Cellrox, a leader in multi-persona solutions for mobile devices, today announced a partnership with Fixmo, a leader in mobile security and data protection solutions, to provide multi-persona services for iPhones and iPads brought into organizations through bring your own device (BYOD) arrangements. Cellrox will integrate the Fixmo SafeZone secure workspace solution into its Cellrox solution to enhance mobile security and privacy for enterprise IT departments and iOS users.
As the BYOD approach continues to proliferate, end users are looking for a greater sense of privacy and ownership over their personal information and device characteristics. At the same time, IT departments must ensure that business data and applications are password protected, governed by a set of corporate IT policies, and can be remotely locked or wiped without impacting the personal side of the device. Creating a clean separation between the two sides of the device—personal and business—is becoming increasingly important.
Cellrox provides an innovative multi-persona solution that enables mobile device users to switch seamlessly between business apps and personal apps with a simple swipe of the screen (see how the technology works here: http://www.cellrox.com/how-it-works/). Personal apps remain private to the user while policy controls and security settings over the business-related applications and data can be managed by IT departments. Cellrox recently introduced their solution for Android devices, and through the partnership with Fixmo, will now support iOS devices as well.
“We are thrilled to partner with Fixmo to extend our comprehensive and highly secure solution for BYOD to iOS devices,” said Omer Eiferman, CEO, Cellrox. “By bringing together best-of-breed solutions, our customers and partners can now embrace an end-to-end platform for BYOD security and management that offers complete separation of business and personal data across a wider range of smartphones and tablets.”
Fixmo is a leading provider of defense-grade mobile security and data protection solutions. Its innovative Fixmo SafeZone product is a powerful secure workspace solution that keeps all corporate email, browsing, documents and applications encrypted, contained and under IT control no matter who owns the device. It provides end-to-end FIPS 140-2 AES 256-bit encryption of all corporate data, strong authentication, secure access to enterprise systems, and custom IT policies that enable all business data to be wiped without impacting the personal side of the device.
“Fixmo SafeZone has received tremendous feedback from customers and partners for its innovative ‘secure workspace’ design that enables all business apps to work together within a highly secure, IT controlled sandbox environment without impacting the personal side of the device,” said Rick Segal, CEO, Fixmo. “Fixmo and Cellrox share a common vision of enabling organizations to embrace the full potential of enterprise mobility and BYOD without compromising security, compliance, or end-user experience. We’re very excited about the opportunity to go to market as technology partners.”
