News Release

Good Technology Provides Migration Path for BlackBerry Users

New Services Reinforce Good is the Only Mobile Messaging Solution that Supports Common Criteria EAL4
Released: 26th September 2013
Publisher: Good Technology

Sunnyvale, CA – September 26, 2013 – Good TechnologyTM, the leader in secure mobility, today announced a set of products and new Platform Transition Services to ensure continuity of mission-critical secure messaging services inside enterprise and government organisations that are transitioning from BlackBerry to iOS, Android and Windows Phone platforms.  The solution includes new Platform Transition Services and the recently announced Good for EnterpriseÒ app now starting at US$5 per user per month.

Used in more than half of the FORTUNE 100, Good Technology employs a similar architecture to BlackBerry that is trusted by IT professionals, without having to compromise on existing security policies.  Further, unlike other alternatives, Good’s approach does not require additional investment in costly VPN hardware and related support. Long considered the industry leader in mobile app containerisation, Good offers BlackBerry customers a secure alternative to protect critical apps and data on CL, BYOD and COPE devices across multiple platforms. No other device management or virtualisation solution has been as broadly deployed, tested and trusted, nor do they offer the combination of both productivity and security that these customers demand.

"With rapidly changing IT market conditions, there are many enterprise customers that are exploring the options to secure enterprise mobility deployments. We’d recommend those customers look for vendors that offer solutions that deliver visibility and management of data across devices, platforms and applications,” said Stacy Crook, Program Manager, Mobile Enterprise Research, IDC, lead author on the IDC MEM 2013 report. "As a pure-play secure mobility provider with a proven containerisation and NOC infrastructure, as well as FIPS 140-2 encryption and Common Criteria EAL4+ certification for Good for Enterprise for iOS and Android, Good Technology has made the appropriate investments to satisfy the stringent security requirements that many organisations require, as well as those that are looking to safely manage BYOD environments."

Enterprises can leverage Good for Enterprise, the industry-leading containerised productivity app for iOS, Android and Windows Phone, offering end-users enterprise-grade email, calendar, contacts and tasks, along with secure intranet access.  GFE uniquely provides enterprise-class features that streamline common tasks for users on the go and are not included in native mobile apps. The capabilities include intelligent conference call dialing, Free/Busy lookup for meeting invites and on-demand mapping of meeting addresses, and rich sorting, filtering, and classification of email.   "Good is the easy choice for BlackBerry customers looking for an alternative, and we've already helped many customers successfully navigate this transition,” said Lynn Lucas, Chief Marketing Officer of Good Technology.  “As the only mobile productivity app with Common Criteria EAL4+ certifications on both iOS and Android (the highest certification often used for sensitive government data) in addition to FIPS 140-2 encryption, we're the natural solution that doesn't require a customer to reevaluate their security posture."
