On Wednesday, MMW learned that Webalo has just forged a new partnership with MobileIron AppConnect.
The partnership reflects the larger MDM partnership strategy the company is rolling out. Webalo, for example, also just recently announced similar partnerships with Symantec, Citrix, MobileGEN and Good Technology.
As part of MobileIron’s ecosystem of apps, Webalo will provide MobileIron customers with an enterprise-ready solution that delivers a “virtually instantaneous ROI” and gives businesses a single enterprise mobility platform for confidently generating, securing, and managing apps and content on both iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.
“There are several options organizations can use for mobilizing corporate data and traditional desktop applications,” says Eric Klein, Enterprise Mobility Software Analyst at VDC Research, “To date, however, many vendors have utilized a highly structured approach that relies on programming skills and that can lock an organization into using that approach. Webalo’s automated approach to app development is both flexible and unique and is very synergistic with partners like MobileIron.”
MobileIron, the leader in security and management for mobile apps, documents, and devices, provides its AppConnect technology to third party mobile app developers. With MobileIron AppConnect apps, companies can give their employees the best third-party application experiences with apps that have been enabled with auto-configuration, data containerization, and secure tunneling to protect corporate data.
“Making our enterprise mobility platform available through MobileIron’s AppConnect ecosystem will greatly expand customers’ mobile options,” explains Peter Price, Co-Founder and CEO of Webalo. “The Webalo platform is easy for anyone to master, and its automation capabilities work out-of-the-box, as part of the MobileIron infrastructure, delivering enterprise mobility 100 times faster and at a fraction of the cost of traditional mobile application development tools.”
