Echoworx Secure Cloud Manages Encryption Services
Echoworx, which offers encryption services, has opened up its secure cloud to third-party partners and customers, including mobile device management providers (MDMs), mobile enterprise application platforms (MEAPs) and cloud services providers. According to Echoworx CEO Michael Ginsberg, customers are asking for a mobile or enterprise application that they can use to push credentials through without going through the work of setting-up and managing a PKI infrastructure.
In response, Echoworx is now delivering an Echoworx Developer Kit. It is designed to save customers time and money because they won’t have to develop their own credential management and encryption solutions. That Developer Kit includes sample source code and documentation needed to put a credential management and encryption services into place. If all goes according to plan, the Echoworx cloud environment will be strictly for credential management.
It looks as though Echoworx has been steadily moving toward opening up its cloud environment. Remember, Echoworx already offers its own encryption solution for mobile devices — the Echoworx mobilEncrypt ENDPOINT. And earlier this year, Echoworx partnered with Mformation, an MDM software provider, to include Echoworx’s mobile encryption solution in Mformation’s MDM software solution.
Echoworx is striking while the iron — or in this case, the market — is hot, particularly when it comes to MDM. There is certainly no shortage of MDM software consumer and providers, many of which Echoworx says have been itching for this type of solution.
