Fixmo Unveils Enterprise Mobility Platform For 'Bringing Work To Devices'

Fixmo EMP provides a new centralized management and administration platform
CTIA, Las Vegas – May 21, 2013 – Fixmo, a leading provider of mobile security and risk management solutions, today unveiled the new Fixmo Enterprise Mobility Platform (Fixmo EMP), its next-generation mobile security and enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution for Government and Enterprise. Fixmo EMP is the first EMM solution to offer a full suite of modular services for mobilizing sensitive business data, managing a wide range of mobile devices and apps, and embracing the BYOD approach – all while meeting the complex security and compliance requirements of government agencies and enterprises in regulated markets.

The Fixmo EMP platform delivers on a new architecture and a new approach for the next wave of enterprise mobility. Built on defense-grade data leakage prevention (DLP) and integrity verification technology, Fixmo EMP helps IT organizations securely 'bring work to devices' through a modular suite of mobility services that can be deployed as a complete end-to-end EMM solution or as individual services that complement and extend existing MDM or MAM investments.

"Government agencies and large enterprises are rapidly expanding their use of smartphones and tablets as true business enablers and productivity drivers. The mobility paradigm is flipping – it's no longer about 'bringing devices to work,' it's about 'bringing work to devices' in a secure and compliant manner," said Rick Segal, Fixmo CEO. "Fixmo EMP helps IT organizations bring work to devices safely, while managing the risks of corporate data leakage, policy compliance breaches and exposing themselves to malicious cyber attacks."

Fixmo EMP provides a new centralized management and administration platform with the following modular services delivered on a common enterprise architecture:

Fixmo Sentinel – industry-leading device integrity verification solution for ensuring mobile devices start, and remain, in a known trusted state

Fixmo SafeZone – defense-grade secure workspace solution for protecting all business email and apps with AES 256-bit encryption, two-factor authentication and advanced policy controls

Fixmo SafeGuard SDK – comprehensive app containerization SDK for securing custom business applications with defense-grade data encryption and IT policy controls

Fixmo SharePlace – government-grade DLP solution for mobilizing Microsoft SharePoint while maintaining full control over which content can be accessed and stored on mobile devices

Fixmo Secure Gesture – revolutionary gesture-based authentication technology for verifying the identity of mobile users attempting to access sensitive business apps or data

Fixmo SafeLock MDM – complete mobile device management for iOS, Android and BlackBerry devices with enhanced support for Samsung Knox

Fixmo Enterprise Data Connector – behind-the-firewall enterprise gateway service for enabling secure and controlled access to the corporate intranet without requiring third party VPN

Fixmo EMP Policy Engine – define custom policies across different services, such as triggering a lock/wipe of Fixmo SafeZone based on a security violation detected by Fixmo Sentinel

"Fixmo EMP brings our various industry-leading technologies together into a newly federated platform that is extremely flexible and customizable," said Tyler Lessard, Chief Marketing Officer at Fixmo. "Our customers and partners can now choose to deploy the full range of Fixmo EMP services as a complete defense-grade EMM solution for mobile security and management, or they can enable individual services to complement existing technology investments and third party MDM solutions."

Fixmo EMP can be deployed as an on-premise solution or as a cloud-based subscription service, and is the only EMM solution available today that enables U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) agencies to meet the complete set of security requirements defined in the latest Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGs) across BlackBerry, Samsung and Apple iOS devices. Enterprises, government agencies and prospective partners can now register for a free 30-day trial of Fixmo EMP at http://fixmo.com.

Fixmo will be demonstrating the new Fixmo EMP platform at CTIA in Las Vegas from May 21-23 at booth 4946. Fixmo SafeZone with Fixmo Secure Gesture Authentication has been named a finalist in the Enterprise Security, Fraud & Privacy category of CTIA's annual Emerging Technology (E-Tech) Awards competition.
