PKWARE announced SecureZIP Reader for Android, an application that secures enterprise and government data.
The SecureZIP Solution secures corporate information that end-users send to the cloud via file-sharing applications, like DropBox, Box.net or email, to access on their mobile devices.
With the proliferation of mobile devices, companies are increasingly adopting “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) policies – whereby employees use their personal phones and tablets to access corporate applications and data.
Gartner has projected that by 2014, 90 percent of organizations will support corporate applications on personal devices. This raises significant security challenges for enterprise IT departments on how to secure and protect corporate data on a wide range of mobile devices.
“Until now, enterprises have been unable to secure corporate data sent to the most popular mobile devices, Android-based or Apple devices, through email or the Cloud,” said V. Miller Newton, Chief Executive Officer for PKWARE. “We are very excited to be the first to bring this new technology to both the Google Play and Apple marketplaces. SecureZIP Reader for Android expands the ability of the enterprise to secure sensitive data on the majority of BYOD and the Cloud.”
