The new suite along with Oracle’s existing Identity and Access solutions deliver an integrated platform from which organizations can manage access to all applications from all devices – including laptops, desktops and mobile devices.
Unlike the device-centric approaches taken by today’s mobile device management solutions that can create a separate security silo requiring expensive integration with identity solutions, Oracle Mobile Security Suite takes an application and user-centric approach which allows IT to more efficiently and securely administer and manage access.
“Oracle Mobile Security Suite brings the strength of Oracle’s Identity Management platform to mobile devices, and as a result helps organizations address the BYOD challenge with a logical approach,” said Amit Jasuja, senior vice president of Java and Identity Management, Oracle. “By extending security and access capabilities to mobile devices, organizations can protect corporate resources on employee devices without compromising the user experience.”
Oracle Mobile Security Suite provides a secure workspace that allows companies to separate and protect enterprise apps and data and enforce policy while preserving privacy of users’ personal applications and content on the same device.
In addition to separation of personal and corporate information, the workspace provides a complete mobile application solution including single sign-on, per application network tunneling, encryption for stored data, native integration with Microsoft Active Directory for shared-drive access, a corporate application catalog and a wrapping tool to include bespoke or COTS applications into the workspace.
As part of the Oracle Mobile Platform, Oracle Mobile Security Suite is integrated out of the box with Oracle’s Mobile Suite for application development, integration and deployment, in addition to being available standalone.
