WALLDORF — SAP AG today announced a new rapid-deployment solution that enables businesses embracing bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies to offer secure mobile devices, content and apps in only days. Rapid deployment of the SAP Mobile Secure portfolio provides compliant access to corporate data, and with options to deploy on premise, in the cloud or in a hybrid environment, customers can choose what makes the most sense for their businesses to keep their data secure.

SAP Mobile Secure is a comprehensive enterprise mobility management portfolio that includes mobile device management, mobile app security and mobile content management capabilities. Businesses can manage a wide range of mobile devices in the cloud or on premise, detecting compromised devices, helping ensure compliance with security policies and managing devices throughout their life cycle. Mobile content management allows users to securely share files, view mobile documents and present and collaborate on corporate content. With mobile app security, businesses can add advanced security capabilities to mobile apps after the development process is complete, helping to reduce security bottlenecks and streamline the user experience. The SAP Mobile Secure rapid-deployment solution helps companies get up and running quickly by offering structured, low-risk implementation options with predictable scopes and outcomes.

“Businesses today face an unprecedented level of IT security risks and need additional data protection as they embrace a BYOD policy,” said Dr. Bernd Welz, executive vice president, Solution and Knowledge Packaging, SAP. “We are committed to keeping customer data safe and secure and with rapid deployment of the SAP Mobile Secure portfolio, customers can protect their devices, apps and content in a matter of days. Businesses should not have to worry about whether valuable data may fall into the wrong hands; this solution helps alleviate those concerns.”

Working with consultants from the SAP Services organization or its ecosystem of partners, customers can select a deployment method for the SAP Mobile Secure rapid-deployment solution that makes the most sense for their business. Customers can further secure their mobile apps deployed by the SAP Work Manager rapid-deployment solution or created with the SAP Mobile Platform rapid-deployment solution with extra protection and can securely deploy to mobile devices.

“Protecting sensitive data is a priority for any business that embraces BYOD,” said mobile app security expert Kurt Stammberger, CISSP and vice president, Market Development, Mocana. “Mobile platforms are subject to exponentially increasing attacks but companies can combat this by investing in enterprise mobility management solutions. The key is simplicity. Many alternatives take weeks to implement but SAP’s mobile app security solution can be up and running in just hours.”
