SAN FRANCISCO & BARENDRECHT, The Netherlands--Mocana and VeliQ today announced a strategic partnership to integrate the Mocana Mobile App Protection&trade (MAP&trade) solution into VeliQ's mobility Platform as a Service (mPaaS&trade) to enable enterprise IT to secure mobile apps and their data in seconds, without having to write any code. Offered by VeliQ as MobiDM Mobile App Protection by Mocana, MAP will deepen the security offering of the VeliQ cloud-based mobility Platform as a Service (mPaaS) solution, and will enable enterprises to quickly add fine-grained usage and security policies to iOS and Android&trade apps and speed app deployment, especially in highly-regulated markets such as financial services, healthcare and government.

"App shielding is becoming an increasingly critical part of true mobile app management capability, and VeliQ decided to partner with Mocana because its MAP solution is quite simply the best app security technology available today," said Alex Bausch, founder and CEO at VeliQ. "Employees are demanding to bring their own mobile devices to the workplace, and the simplicity and effectiveness of Mocana's app-shielding technology, in combination with our mPaaS platform, will help ease IT's pain and accelerate the deployment of more secure mobile apps that can fully leverage sensitive corporate information and services."

VeliQ offers a fully featured mPaaS solution that makes smartphone and tablet management easy and scalable by providing cloud-based mobile device management, mobile content management, mobile application management, mobile security and risk management, back-end integration and more. VeliQ's platform allows all mobile devices to be controlled and managed throughout their life cycle from a single web portal, offers much lower total cost of ownership per device as well as a quick return on investment.

"Sold exclusively through partners like KPN, Vodafone, BT, Capgemini, T-Systems, Windmill International, Inc. and other leading global telecommunications and IT service providers, the VeliQ MobiDM mPaaS offering has become a leading solution for enterprise mobility management, and we are excited that VeliQ has chosen MAP as their app security automation platform," said Adrian Turner, CEO at Mocana. "Mocana is setting the benchmark for mobile app security with MAP, and today's announcement is another example of the momentum MAP has achieved in the marketplace."

Mocana is the industry's most trusted app security provider, and its Mobile Application Protection (MAP) solution accelerates wide-scale deployment of enterprise apps by rapidly and reliably adding a security 'shield' to any app in seconds, regardless of device platform and without writing any code. MAP protects corporate data from unauthorized access and prevents data loss. MAP lets IT certify their app security automation system just once, rather than vetting every app for security, and MAP lets the enterprise completely avoid the costs, time and headaches of writing security code. With MAP, the enterprise can deliver automated, consistent app security with confidence.

Mocana MAP offers robust and popular security features to protect company information, such as per-application VPN capabilities and FIPS 140-2 data-at-rest encryption, among many others. MAP works on iOS and Android and creates Self-Defending Apps&trade that protect data and enhance control for apps on managed and unmanaged devices alike.
