Good Technology and HID Global have been working together to mobilize smart cards and the underlying secure element technology for use within mobile devices for over a year now. Good Vault is the first product to integrate the authentication tools needed to enable secure access to organizational systems using highly popular mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets.
"Supporting a mobile and wireless workforce is becoming an increasingly critical, yet somewhat daunting task for many corporations and governments today due to the increasing number of mobile attacks and security breaches," said Jerome Becquart, vice president and general manager of Identity Assurance with HID Global, Good's strategic IAM development partner. "Now, as a result of our partnership with Good, companies with highly mobile workforces can provide digital keys over-the-air and to employees' phones and use them to access all of their enterprise resources from anywhere in the world—just like they had previously been doing with their photo ID cards, keyfobs or tags—without compromising security."
Good Vault is immediately available for download in the iTunes App Store. End users must first be licensed for Good for Enterprise and Good Vault to activate the application.
