ORLANDO, June 13, 2012 -- Kony Solutions, Inc., the leading multi-channel application development platform and business applications provider, today announced a new solution for Mobile Application Management (MAM) that sets the standard for managing and securing mobile applications. Kony's Mobile App Manager gives organizations a single, easy-to-use environment for deploying, managing, analyzing and securing mobile applications for all devices, across all channels, including HTML5, mobile web, native, hybrid, or mixed-mode.
The new product is a highly customizable, application-centric solution for provisioning, updating and managing a wide array of mobile apps in both business-to-employee (B2E) and business-to-business (B2B) environments. Administrators can use Kony Mobile App Manager to manage Kony pre-built apps, custom-built and third party apps running on the KonyOne Platform, or third-party or custom apps built outside the KonyOne Platform environment. In addition, organizations can use Kony MAM to enable Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) strategies, because Kony MAM handles application provisioning, policy management, and even device feature management from within a secure client container that does not impact end users' personal apps, games, photos or videos.
Kony MAM provides end users, IT and developers with the tools they need for comprehensive mobile application management. Users can leverage the self-service features to install and configure apps inside Kony's secure client container. IT can have detailed visibility with a powerful and simple to use web-based management console. Meanwhile, developers can utilize Kony APIs and app development tools to build mobile app security and management into apps from the early development stages. In addition, Kony MAM utilizes a highly scalable server model that integrates seamlessly with backend security infrastructures including those from Symantec, McAfee, and CA. By offering a single, unified resource for managing multiple applications, Kony Mobile App Manager streamlines management while delivering the industry's most flexible MAM environment.
Gartner predicts that 90% of companies will support corporate applications on personal mobile devices by 2014. Some of the biggest challenges organizations must cope with in mobilizing their business applications are applying layered security policies and developing, deploying and maintaining mobile enterprise applications. Kony's Mobile App Manager addresses both of these issues for enterprises in a single comprehensive easy offering.
"Our open and standards-based KonyOne Platform has become the solution of choice for the world's largest IT organizations. With the new application management solutions we're introducing today, we now have the industry's most versatile set of offerings to help enterprises tackle their diverse mobile deployments," said Sam Lakkundi, Chief Mobile Officer at Kony Solutions. "CIOs want to be able to secure and manage corporate data and assets, without touching end-users' Angry Birds or Bejeweled games – now they can do that in a very intelligent and straightforward way – and they can do so without having to cobble together different underlying platforms, consoles, and MAM/MDM products. Kony MAM gives them a single resource for total, flexible control."
Kony Mobile App Manager features a secure mobile app container, centralized web-based management console, enterprise app store, and complete support for Kony or third party Mobile Device Management (MDM) software . The Kony MAM platform can be deployed on-premises or in the cloud to provide "instant-on" capability – both of these deployment modes can dynamically scale on demand.
