ionGrid Unveils Secure Enterprise Content Access Solution for iPhone

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/13/12 -- ionGrid announced today the availability of Stratos for iPhone, the industry's first native iOS solution that enables secure mobile access to enterprise content, applications and data behind the firewall.

For users, Stratos functions just like any other app on the iPhone, but it operates inside a secure ionGrid container on the device, which keeps the IT department in control of the information inside of it at all times. This 'containerized' approach eliminates many common device-management, BYOD and corporate compliance concerns. And meanwhile, it provides mobile workers with unprecedented access to the corporate information they need to be productive in the field, whether online or offline.

According to Yankee Group, there are many ways a company could benefit from mobile-enabling mission-critical applications. But reality is, only 42% of companies surveyed provide smartphone or tablet access to the corporate database, 30% to CRM, and 20% to ERP applications.

"Up until now, the IT requirements, costs and security concerns outweighed the desire to provide enterprise content access on mobile devices," said Nick Triantos, CEO of ionGrid. "But with Stratos, companies can extend SharePoint, custom applications and file stores to iPhones within a day, and at a price well below what companies are currently paying for secure email access, such as BlackBerry." Use Cases Ideal use cases for Stratos include executive dashboards, field support and field sales. For example, one utility company is providing ionGrid-enabled iPhones to its linemen, so that they can directly control power to transformers through a secure enterprise application located in the company's data center. Before ionGrid, this task required a telephone call to the internal operations center which could have taken up to 30 minutes per task, which significantly reduced the number of truck rolls a lineman could complete each day.

In addition to boosting mobile worker productivity, Stratos offers the following features and benefits: Same-day deployments -- just install two server components within an hour, and deploy thousands of iPhones in a day. ionGrid leverages the existing IT infrastructure -- Active Directory, RSA SecureID, etc. No data replication or cloud storage is required -- content stays where it currently resides. Fine-grained policy control -- use existing templates ore create unique, custom rules in Javascript. AES 256-bit encryption end-to-end, which keeps all data and application access secure, whether the device is online or offline. Pixel-perfect rendering of Office documents and enterprise applications. Reduced mobile bills, made possible through ionGrid's efficient streaming technology. Access to content, whether online or offline. Keep work and personal life separate for users -- the iPhone operates as usual and remains within the user's control, but everything inside the ionGrid container belongs to the company.

Stratos for iPhone is available today, and pricing starts at $15 per user per month. For more information, visit our website or contact sales@iongrid.com.
