MokaFive™, whose products provide secure access to corporate data and resources from any device, today announced that Internet and mobile security leader AVG Technologies (NYSE: AVG) has adopted MokaFive software to securely deliver sensitive financial and governance communications to its board of directors' iPads, without fear of compromising confidential data.
“Mokafive for iOS has allowed us to deliver sensitive corporate documents to our very mobile and global board members. It provides us with critical security and central management of our corporate records and board materials,” said Christophe François, general counsel and corporate secretary for AVG. “One of the best features is the fact that board members can cache files for offline use.”
The company stores board documents in a secure, internal file share, and members then download these files into a secure, encrypted MokaFive container on their iPads. This container is impenetrable to outside threats, such as viruses, and can be remotely wiped if an iPad is lost or stolen.
“Companies are increasingly faced with the challenge of providing access to sensitive corporate information from personal devices,” said Purnima Padmanabhan, COO of MokaFive. “MokaFive’s secure container approach provides a way to both ensure the security of corporate data as well as preserve the privacy of personal data.”
Since its launch in late April, MokaFive for iOS has been in use at many firms concerned about mitigating the security risks posed by employee-owned personal devices in enterprise environments. MokaFive for iOS unites work and personal computing on iPads and iPhones, keeping corporate data separate and secure. It is the only solution that enables corporate IT departments to manage data on all of their computers, tablets and phones from a single console.
