MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MobileIron , the leader in security and management for mobile apps, documents, and devices, today announced the availability of Web@Work, its secure mobile browser for the enterprise. MobileIron Web@Work extends MobileIron's market-leading security and management platform for native mobile apps to web content and web apps, including those based on HTML5. Web@Work secures web data while preserving a native web-browsing experience.
Mobile devices are now mainstream business tools and users expect to be able to access web resources wherever they are. Therefore, Mobile IT needs to deliver simple, highly usable mobile access to all web content and web apps. However, historically, enterprise browsers have focused on security at the expense of usability. Web@Work breaks this compromise by providing enterprise-grade security for web data-at-rest and data-in-motion and also delivering a consumer-grade user experience.
MobileIron Web@Work secures data-at-rest through the containerization of local web data and enforcement of Data Loss Prevention (DLP) controls. Web@Work secures data-in-motion through identity-based tunneling and access control. For end users, Web@Work delivers an experience like the native browser that accurately renders pages just as the user would expect."Users don't think about whether the web content and apps they need are inside or outside of the firewall. They just know they need them to do their jobs," said Ojas Rege, VP Strategy, MobileIron. "Through MobileIron Web@Work, every authorized user can now get to both legacy web resources as well as new HTML 5 apps optimized for mobile use. By providing enterprise-grade security on the back-end and a native user experience on the front-end, MobileIron® Web@Work is the only solution that fully addresses both the IT and end-user requirements for mobile web access to company data."
