Good Technology's Good for Enterprise product allows healthcare organizations to protect patent health data and corporate information on mobile devices. The product separates patient and corporate data from employees' personal information and places the data in an encrypted, secure container on a wide range of iPhone, Android and Windows Mobile smartphones and tablets.

This feature--combined with password policy enforcement, preventing cut, copy, and paste from the secure container, and remote wiping--can work together to help reduce the risk of data loss to unsecured consumer applications.
