LAS VEGAS — SAP AG today announced significant updates to the recently launched SAP Mobile Secure portfolio to help companies in even the most highly regulated industries secure devices, apps and content. The newest release of this enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution portfolio shall include the cloud edition of the SAP Mobile App Protection solution by Mocana with app wrapping, a new secure mobile browser and enhanced capabilities for mobile content management. With these additional capabilities, businesses will  be able to quickly secure apps in the cloud with a single console and secure browser for intranet data, Web apps and portals to almost any iOS or Android device. The announcement was made at SAP TechEd, being held October 21-25 in Las Vegas.

SAP Mobile Secure Portfolio Expands Cloud Capabilities

Easy Access to Personal and Corporate Content
SAP enables secure access to mobile content via the SAP Mobile Documents solution using the SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud service, helping to increase user productivity by providing a single entry point to personal documents and corporate content from a single account.
