CUPERTINO, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 26, 2012) - Voltage Security®, the world leader in data-centric encryption and key management, today announced the Voltage Security Mobile Plus Alliance, a program designed to bring together best-of-breed mobile solutions that extend and enhance the mobile security of Voltage Security Mobile Plus products. Alliance companies are working with Voltage to deploy their solutions in collaboration with the recently announced Voltage SecureMail™ Mobile Edition to provide more comprehensive, data-centric protection of mobile platforms.
Currently, the alliance comprises companies that provide market-leading mobile device management (MDM), mobile application management (MAM), mobile content protection and mobile data leak protection (DLP). Alliance companies announced today are Apperian, Good Technology, MobileIron, OpenPath Products and Websense.
"Enterprises are struggling with vendor selection due to the pace of change in the mobile industry and the intricacies of tying together enterprise mobile security solutions in a manageable way," said Jeremy Stieglitz, vice president business development for Voltage Security. "By bringing together these best-of-breed solutions, customers can be confident that these technologies work together to augment enterprise mobile security."
The Voltage Security Mobile Plus Initiative, announced in February, is a comprehensive approach to providing data-centric enterprise security for mobile devices, applications and data.
Recently, Voltage announced the first in a series of products as part of this initiative, the Voltage SecureMail Mobile Edition, which protects confidential messages and attachments, while mitigating the risk of data breaches and meeting the needs of compliance mandates. Transparent to use and easy to implement and scale, without adding complexity and overhead for key management, Voltage SecureMail Mobile Edition cements Voltage Security's leadership in delivering a data-centric approach to protecting data on leading mobile devices.
Each of the alliance companies brings valuable extensions to enterprise security for email and related mobile device management. They include the following:
- Apperian: delivers enterprise mobility services to securely manage the full lifecycle of mobile apps for iOS, Android, and BlackBerry.
"Our goal in joining this alliance is to help enterprises resolve issues as they deal with mounting mobile security demands," said Cimarron Buser, vice president business development, Apperian. "Our customers want a complete toolset with technology that works together for efficient, global deployment and easy administration."
- Good Technology: allows for secure management and delivery of enterprise collaboration tools, apps and data on a range of mobile devices including iOS, Android and Windows Mobile phones.

"By expanding our relationship with Voltage, we can allow our joint customers to seamlessly access and manage both their Good for Enterprise and Voltage SecureMail environments, and now extend that security from email alone out to other apps and data on a range of mobile devices, which helps ease the burden on IT."
- MobileIron: provider of security and management for mobile apps, content, and devices.
