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."
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:
Stratos for iPhone is available today, and pricing starts at $15 per user per month. For more information, visit our website or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Founded in 2010, ionGrid is a leader in enterprise Mobile Information Management software, providing access to business applications, documents, and email securely on mobile devices. Stratos allows IT to leverage existing security, infrastructure, and policy controls within the organization while at the same time enabling user productivity.
