Symplified, a cloud security company, has released Symplified Mobile Edition to help enterprises secure cloud and Web apps on any mobile device and safely make corporate data accessible on tablets and smartphones. Symplified Mobile Edition extends comprehensive identity and access management capabilities previously only available on network-based computers to mobile platforms without installing any software on endpoint devices. Businesses of all sizes can provide employees with single sign-on (SSO) and enforce access policies on cloud and on-premises apps regardless of the user’s access device.

To provide universal coverage for all mobile platforms, Symplified Mobile Edition uses an identity-based approach to protect apps and data that does not require the installation and maintenance of software on the tablet or smartphone. This makes it possible to secure any mobile platform and operating system, which is especially helpful in cases where the device belongs to the employee. Since users need only enter a single URL (mobile.yourcompany.com) on their device to securely access the apps they need, Symplified can be rapidly deployed and used by IT departments and business users.

Symplified Mobile Edition is simple enough for workgroups of 50 to use yet robust enough to meet the demands of Fortune 500 companies. It extends all the capabilities of the Symplified Suite -- Web access management, federated SSO, auditing, and user provisioning -- to mobile devices and apps.

SSO to Go

To enable users to collaborate from anywhere on the device of their choice, Symplified Mobile Edition provides SSO to both on-premises and cloud applications directly from any smartphone or tablet. With one username and password, Symplified makes it fast and easy for users to instantly access all the apps and data they are authorized to use. Symplified Mobile Edition accepts corporate identities such as those contained in Active Directory and consumer identities provided by Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, and other OpenID providers to unify SSO for professional and social network apps.

For organizations that want to create a central portal to deliver the right apps to the right users on any computing device, Symplified Mobile Edition provides a ready-made solution. Delivered as a subscription cloud service, it does not require software, hardware, or staff investments and delivers the following benefits:

  • Allows users to create an icon on the device’s home screen that presents them with a SSO login portal

  • Eliminates the need for users to navigate to each individual Web site and remember multiple passwords to access applications

  • Provides fast deployment with more than 200 pre-integrated apps from Symplified’s Trust Fabric App Store

  • Supports all leading smartphone operating systems including iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry, works with all major tablets including iPad, Motorola Xoom, and Samsung Galaxy, and integrates with VPNs from Juniper, Cisco, and others.

  • Integrates with Active Directory for authentication, access control, and de-provisioning

  • Deploys in days with ROI often in less than one month

Availability and Pricing

Symplified Mobile Edition is available immediately from Symplified and its business partners worldwide. Pricing starts at $500/month for workgroups of up to 50 users and includes access to five SaaS apps. Enterprise pricing is also available.
