Motorola announced the latest version of its Good Mobility Suite, which includes a new managed VPN for mobile access to back-end corporate data.
Called Good Mobile Connection, the managed-service VPN, according to Motorola, delivers “seamless, managed data connection from mobile devices to data and applications behind the corporate firewall.” Using the same transport as Good’s Mobile Messaging service, the VPN will enable users a secure connection to enterprise applications and services beyond e-mail.
“Mobile messaging alone is no longer enough for today’s mobile enterprise. Although mobile messaging remains a killer application, enterprises need an end-to-end mobility platform that enables them to manage all of their critical mobile applications across Wi-Fi and WAN/cellular networks,” Sue Forbes, senior director of product management and marketing, Motorola Good Technology Group, said in a statement. “With Good 6.0, we will provide organizations the ability to simply and securely mobilize all segments of their business across a wide variety of devices, carriers and networks.”
Other new features of Good 6.0 include an enhanced device management portion called Good Administration Center, which allows IT managers to remotely manage security policies from a Web-based portal and an updated security platform.
The company said Good 6.0 is expected to be available later this year, with support for a broad range of smartphones and both IBM Lotus Domino and Microsoft Exchange e-mail systems.
