Last October, we announced a strategic partnership with IBM MobileFirst. Today, we’ve expanded our partnership to include industry-leading Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) with IBM MobileFirst Protect.
The growth in mobile apps brings substantial opportunities to the enterprise, but also comes with significant risks, including: loss of data through device theft, employee misuse, or targeted attacks. With an increasingly mobile workforce, and employees’ ability to access company information from anywhere at anytime, companies must ensure their mobile strategy includes safeguards for data breaches and security threats.
We’ve established interoperability with IBM MobileFirst Protect to provide our customers with more comprehensive methods for securely delivering high quality native iOS and Android apps. This capability allows enterprises to wrap their Xamarin apps and leverage IBM MobileFirst Protect capabilities, such as: requiring an application PIN when using the protected application, jailbreak detection, and using MobileFirst app tunneling for secure access to corporate data. Additionally, IBM MobileFirst Protect can insulate enterprises with data loss prevention (DLP) in their mobile apps by restricting users’ ability to cut/copy/paste, print, or using “open in” functions outside of whitelisted apps.
Protect your Xamarin apps with IBM MobileFirst Protect in three easy steps:
- Build your Xamarin app.
- Upload the iOS and Android app packages to IBM MobileFirst Protect for containerization and configuration of security policies.
- Distribute and manage apps through the IBM MobileFirst Protect portal.
