NitroDesk Brings Credential Management and Encryption to Android with Echoworx Security Cloud

New Partnership Legitimizes Android for the Enterprise Market

ATLANTA, GEORGIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 14, 2012) - Echoworx, a leading provider of credential management and managed encryption services, has partnered with NitroDesk, Inc. a developer of the TouchDown™ email client, to deliver enterprise-grade credential management and encryption for Android devices.

NitroDesk is adding the Echoworx Security Cloud capability to its offerings to enable public key infrastructure (PKI) functionality and to support the rapid adoption of Android devices for business use.

"This relationship legitimizes Android for the enterprise customer," says Ron Goins, Chief Operating Officer for NitroDesk. "Many corporations are embracing BYOD (bring your own device) and the reality is a large proportion of new devices sold are Android. The Echoworx Security Cloud will play a big part in extending the security model we have already built into TouchDown making Android use in the workplace a non-issue."

According to Michael Ginsberg, Chief Executive Officer, Echoworx, "This is a major breakthrough for companies like NitroDesk. Rather than running their own PKI, they simply plug into ours and get all the security they need. Whatever people are using - whether it's the TouchDown email client or any application that requires a password - it is clear that organizations need stronger forms of credential management to protect corporate usage and data."

With the Echoworx Security Cloud, NitroDesk enables its nearly 3/4 of a million TouchDown users to access credential management without having to run their own PKI infrastructure. Credentials are pushed over-the-air and stored securely on the users' smartphone or tablet, and IT administrators can easily manage the user credentials by issuing, revoking or suspending credentials as required.

Echoworx will be continuing to develop partnerships with organizations that require an easy way to add credential management and encryption to their applications.
