Mobile Helix, an enterprise application and data security platform provider, has launched its HTML5 platform called Link.
The company claims that Link unlocks enterprise productivity by combining security for enterprise data; open HTML5 application development and delivery platform; and performance enhancement technology.
Moreover, Link is designed with data security rather than device security at its core, delivering security irrespective of the endpoint. The technology bridges the fixed/mobile application divide by allowing any existing or new browser-based enterprise application to be deployed across multiple device types, including mobile devices, PCs and laptops. Link is available now for iOS and Android, with support for Windows 8, Mac OSX and Blackberry 10 scheduled for later this year.
“Link is designed with unrestricted enterprise productivity at its core. It is the first product on the market to combine the unmistakable benefits of device-independent applications built using HTML5, with a disruptive data security platform that ensures sensitive corporate data is safe on any device,” said Seth Hallem, CEO of Mobile Helix.
Link is constructed with optimized data security, rather than device security at its core. This is a fundamental shift in the enterprise security model that leverages unique features of both mobile operating systems and modern browser technology.
Link includes a secure container on the device, fully device-independent encryption of all data in motion and at rest, a sophisticated key management architecture that ensures encrypted data remains safe, and a comprehensive policy engine that allows IT to enforce policies on applications and data rather than on devices.
Link creates a common application environment by deploying applications through Internet browsers, embracing standards-based technology to deliver an open, end-to-end solution. This in turn extends existing enterprise application development, delivery infrastructure and expertise to mobile devices.
In addition, Link integrates with existing IT processes and infrastructure to enable a simplified “download free” application delivery and support model, removing the need for a separate enterprise app store, app catalogue, and dedicated distribution and update processes for every different application and mobile operating system.
