Will fingerprint scanning take off?

Zafar Anjum | Oct. 24, 2013
What are the implications for enterprises and the security issues regarding fingerprint scanning? Anthony Tian, Regional Director, Asia Pacific, Good Technology, gives his thoughts.

In an enterprise environment, where data is moved between apps as part of a business workflow, app-to-app security is essential. This is often the missing link in an organisation's mobile strategy and, if not addressed, can result in significant security challenges and data loss. While biometrics technology provides secure access to a device, it does not secure information in transit between apps which is a critical component of mobile security.

How can Good Technology help enterprises integrate iOS 7 into their mobilisation strategy? How beneficial will it prove to be for them?

Good Technology is the only secure mobility provider to offer full iOS 7 support across its entire suite of applications, including Good for EnterpriseGood Connect and Good Share, the day iOS 7 became available.

With Good, enterprises will be able to upgrade to iOS 7 without any delays in service, exposure of data or compromised security. Good has also rolled out iOS 7 support for its rich ecosystem of custom and partner applications built on the Good Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform.

In addition, Good has leveraged the extended set of Apple mobile device management (MDM) capabilities available in iOS 7 to enable functions such as extended restriction controls, enterprise SSO and configuration and policy management for MDM-managed apps. Good will also support the enhanced Volume Purchase Program (VPP) making it easy for businesses to deploy these iOS 7-compatible apps at enterprise scale while still retaining full ownership and control over app licences. 

By securing entire workflows, facilitating the development of numerous iOS 7-compatible enterprise apps, and simplifying management of iOS 7 within the types of diverse mobile environments typical today, Good is uniquely enabling enterprises to truly embrace iOS 7 as part of their mobilisation strategy.
