Data protection provider Druva is the latest company to join the MobileIron AppConnect ecosystem, the company announced this week. The partnership allows organizations using MobileIron’s enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution to deploy and manage Druva’s inSync endpoint data protection platform for their legacy computers, smartphones and tablets, according to the company.
“For enterprises that have deployed MobileIron, this partnership offers an opportunity to add full-featured mobile data management to their existing mobile device and app management capabilities using AppConnect’s streamlined configuration and extensive app security functionality,” said Chandar Venkataraman, chief product officer at Druva, in a statement. “We also see this partnership as the first step in enabling enterprises to regain complete visibility and control of their mobile data and helping them address their increasing concern about mobile data governance.”
MobileIron provides its AppConnect technology to third-party mobile app developers to ultimately give enterprise end user companies secure apps for corporate data. Druva said the integration between inSync and MobileIron allows IT teams to deploy inSync via AppConnect for all smart devices and establish a single set of data loss prevention policies for both platforms through the MobileIron administrative console. MobileIron users will benefit from quick access to inSync’s endpoint data capabilities, file sharing and governance benefits, including rapid data recovery and automatic data synchronization between files, according to the company.
“The ability to backup mobile data is critical because of the massive volume of corporate information that resides only on employee devices today. Druva is the first member of our AppConnect ecosystem to provide endpoint backup and offer an integrated backup, file sharing and governance solution,” said Sean Convery, vice president of product management at MobileIron. “This integration furthers our mission of bringing customers best-of-breed solutions that allow them to leverage an entire industry of mobile innovation through their AppConnect deployments.”
inSync for MobileIron is available now for iOS devices, with the company planning to release an Android version at an unspecified date. In July, MobileIron debuted its new Insight tablet app as part of its summer release package for IT professionals, which gives admins the ability to access and manage their EMM devices simply by using the free app. This month, Druva finished a $25 million Series D round of funding, according to Forbes.
