Arbua Networks Inc. has added seven more approved applications for distribution through its mobile management solution.
The company said Tuesday the apps are all related to financial services and allow data created through them to be securely transmitted over wireless access points to end users using the WorkSpace capability within Aruba’s ClearPass mobile device management suite.
Workspace is a client application that gives IT administrators customize a work environment to each user. They can also set network priority for apps for bandwidth and latency.
Aruba, which also makes wireless access points, says there are now over 40 enterprise mobile apps available through its WorkSpace program.
The new apps include
–AsdeqDocs: An on-premise enterprise mobility content management solution that its maker says enables the secure synchronization of corporate documents from 18 document management systems to Android and iOS tablets and smartphones;
–Calltrunk: Allows users to record mobile, landline and Skype recordings, saving all the recordings in one place for searching by word;
–Framehawk: Provides a software platform that enables secure, high-performance application delivery to mobile devices;
–Onvelop for Office 365 & Sharepoint: Provides a unified collaboration and communication suite that enables secure mobile access to enterprise server software such as Office 365, SharePoint and Lync from iOS and Android mobile devices;
–PDF Expert Enterprise: A document management system that helps organizations set up a paperless workflow on mobile devices;
–WatchDox: Enables enterprises to securely sync, share and work with their files wherever they need to go, says its maker, including devices beyond IT control. Mobile users can access, annotate and edit their files with Microsoft Office applications;
–Webalo: Mobilizes enterprise applications to deliver secure bi-directional, transactional interactivity.
They join SlideShark, an app for viewing and showing PowerPoint presentations from Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod touch devices.
“Financial services firms are looking to capitalize on the productivity benefits that the BYOD trend offers, but they have stringent security and regulatory requirements that must be addressed first,” Peter Cellarius, Aruba’s vice-president of business development and partnerships, said in a news release.
“In short, they must have a solid handle on the devices and applications connecting to their network. Combining Aruba WorkSpace with these popular financial services apps allows financial services firms to deliver all the productivity benefits of BYOD to their users without compromising the security of corporate applications and data that reside on employees’ personal mobile devices.”
