10 Aug

MindLink, provider of Chat Enabled Collaboration (CEC) applications for global businesses, today announces its security integration with VMware AirWatch.

MindLink for AirWatch allows employees to securely collaborate using chat and messaging applications on mobile devices, whilst the company has full policy controls to secure and manage corporate data and sensitive business information.

AirWatch, a leading provider of mobile device and application management (MDM/MAM), empowers companies to focus on innovative uses of mobile technology and grants them the
ability for auto-configuration, data containerisation, and secure tunnelling to protect data when on the move.

MindLink for AirWatch supports our mission to provide highly secure and compliant chat applications to companies that want to combine mobility, collaboration and data security and provide their employees with the best corporate messaging tools available, comments Harpreet Gosal, CTO at MindLink. By partnering with AirWatch, we can bring a new security dimension to sharing sensitive information whilst away from the office.

Key MindLink for AirWatch features include:

  • Messaging and Collaboration within a secure corporate environment
  • Secure data transport, containerised access, encrypted at rest data
  • Automated on boarding and configuration
  • Supports iOS devices within Airwatch – iPhone and iPad
  • Integrates with Microsoft Lync & Skype for Business – securely mobilising the chat & messaging functionality within the Microsoft UC platforms

In an era where we are seeing an unprecedented move towards a mobile workforce, and where security breacheshappen with concerning regularity, keeping corporate data secure so that only authorised users on authorised devices can access company data is absolutely vital, said Ian Evans, vice president, End-User Computing, &AirWatch EMEA managing director. MindLinks collaboration capabilities, combined with VMware Airwatchs mobilesecurity expertise create a powerful proposition for organisations.

MindLink for AirWatch is targeted at companies with highly dispersed and mobile workforces, regulated industries and those sectors where meeting granular security policy controls and compliance regulations are a must; such as financial services, pharmaceutical, legal and government organisations.

MindLink for AirWatch integrates with Microsoft Lync & Skype for Business allowing messaging & chat users to securely containerise their Instant Messaging and Group Chat capabilities of Lync/Skype for Business on mobile devices.
