Symantec Enhances Enterprise Mobility Solutions


Symantec has expanded its enterprise mobility solutions with two new programs – the App Center Ready Program, which helps developers rapidly build trusted enterprise apps with no code changes, and the Mobility Solution Specialization Program for channel partners.

Symantec now offers a mobile suite spanning device management, application management and mobile security.

The Symantec App Center Ready Program allows mobile application developers to embed Symantec’s security and management features, such as encryption, authentication, data loss prevention policies, app distribution and revocation, into their apps without changing their source code.  Symantec supports both iOS and Android.

Symantec is announcing a dedicated mobility channel specialization program that will allow partners to offer Symantec’s enterprise mobility products to their customers. The Mobility Solution Specialization will cover the full Symantec Mobile Management Suite and will provide partners with access to opportunity registration, expert resources, enablement programs, and accreditations in a multi-tier model. 

“Organizations are looking for applications, partners and products they can depend on to confidently achieve their business objectives,” said Anil Chakravarthy, senior vice president, Enterprise Security Group, Symantec. “By consolidating our portfolio into one suite that is priced per user, not by device, we help IT organizations increase employee mobility and productivity without compromising protection with a straightforward, predictable deployment model. We are pleased to move to a licensing model that takes into account the reality companies are facing of two or more devices per employee.”

Symantec is also announcing the availability of Symantec Mobile Management Suite, a single solution that covers mobile device management, mobile application management and mobile security. This new suite can be deployed on a per-user meter with both subscription and perpetual pricing models. T
