Good Technology and Veracode Enable Market-Leading Mobile Security Threat Assessment and Remediation for Custom and ISV Apps
Veracode for Good Technology Mobile Application Security Assessment Program identifies and mitigates mobile app vulnerabilities
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Good Technology(TM), the leader in secure mobility, today announced an extension of an existing partnership with Veracode, the leader in application security, to launch the Veracode for Good Technology Mobile Application Security Assessment (MASA) Program. Organizations that use Veracode’s Mobile Application Reputation Service (MARS) with the Good Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform can now better analyze, document, score, and mitigate the risks of mobile app vulnerabilities, including corporate network exposure, escalation of privilege, and data leakage.
Good Dynamics provides layered security, including mobile device management as well as data protection through containers, to protect data at rest and traveling between apps while ensuring complete separation of personal and corporate data. Now, the Veracode for Good Technology MASA Program takes this to the next level by enabling enterprise organizations to test custom built and commercial mobile apps for risks based on the app’s capabilities and behavior, and then address these weaknesses before deploying them to their end users. Risks identified and presented by Veracode are mitigated through Good Dynamics’ connected containers, giving enterprises the opportunity to pursue bold mobile workforce strategies knowing they have secured their multi-app workflows with end-to-end encryption. Uniquely, every Good Dynamics-secured app available on the Good Dynamics Marketplace is tested and certified by Veracode.
“The increased use of mobile devices in the workplace creates a security and privacy challenge for enterprises as mobile apps downloaded on these devices can often times access and export sensitive data stored on the device,” said Sam King, EVP of product strategy and corporate development, Veracode. “Veracode is pleased to be working with the leading secure mobility company securing the device and the data. Now, the partnership between Veracode and Good will allow enterprises to embrace mobile apps in ways they haven’t before.”
Commercial apps acquired from public app stores inevitably bring the risk of device compromise, unauthorized network access, and data loss into the corporate environment, often against IT’s policy and control. Custom apps, while under the control of the organization building them, also run the risk of improperly-implemented security capabilities or overlooked secure coding best practices within the app development process, thereby introducing the potential for application vulnerabilities. Without purposeful app-to-app development in mind, using custom apps with vulnerabilities and weak data protection behaviors also introduces data exposure risk as data moves between apps.
The powerful combination of the Veracode for Good Technology MASA Program with Good Dynamics-secured apps means IT can meet line of business demand for mobility while reducing the risk of data leakage and other mobility-driven risks to their business.
“More than 40 Good Mobile Alliance Partners have tested their Good Dynamics applications with Veracode, ensuring customer success in deploying applications that both meet stringent security standards and meet the needs of their mobile workers,” said Herve Danzelaud, vice president of alliances at Good Technology. “Through this extension of Good’s partnership with Veracode, we are now making this assessment program available to all Good customers, simplifying every step of the app selection and development process. This will pave the way for both developers and organizations to embrace the benefits of secure mobile app workflows and unlock their true mobile potential.”
The program will be available starting on November 5(th) for a limited time and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis to qualifying Fortune 500 organizations. To learn more and sign up for a spot in the program calendar, visit http://www1.good.com/good-dynamics-platform/veracode.
