In conjunction with our close partnership with Good Technology, the EyeVerify team participated in Good’s Sales Kickoff this past week in San Francisco. Good continues to impress the market with its innovation and thought leadership in the EMM and MDM space. We heard their battle cry resonate repeatedly this past week as they exclaimed “it’s not just about MDM.” A quote they referenced from Gartner said that “two out of every five calls Gartner receives” are from companies who have basic MDM functionality but are looking for version 2.0. In other words, companies don’t want to just manage their users, but empower them with new productivity tools they can use anywhere, anytime.
Good had the foresight to build an app ecosystem to support enterprises with various business needs and diverse user profiles across a unified platform. With Good Dynamics, users can experience an office away from the office with apps providing secure authentication, mobile printing, document notation, business analytics, and hundreds of other applications. Oh, and did we mention Good revamped its secure email/calendar offering (previously Good For Enterprise) to a completely new solution (called Good Work) that has set the bar for mobile productivity? Imagine editing a document, collaborating with a coworker via chat, requesting an executive signature, saving a file, and emailing a proposal all from the same dashboard under the industry’s highest security certifications. Now imagine performing those tasks in a mobile environment going back and forth between five different apps (all with separate login credentials) passing data through an unsecured network… pretty scary, right?
The password-free, mobile access to these applications is where Good leverages its partnership with EyeVerify. Not only do we provide a quick and easy way for users to authenticate, but we do it with the most secure software-only biometric on the market today. EyeVerify, creator of Eyeprint ID, takes the existing camera on users’ smart devices and pattern matches the blood vessels in the whites of your eyes through a simple selfie. IT teams love EyeVerify’s solution because their users can authenticate conveniently, securely and privately. Meaning no more password resets or lockouts.
