…isn’t that the combo all IT departments day-dream of? With the SAP Mobile Secure suite of applications and their rapid-deployment solution, these dreams could come true quickly. Quickly, because there are product trials in the cloud and deployment options to go live in days in the cloud, or in a few weeks on premise, powered by SAP rapid-deployment solutions (RDS).
- SAP Mobile App Protection by Mocana, a mobile application management solution (MAM), allows you to wrap individual mobile apps with layers of enterprise-grade, regulation-compliant security attributes, such as e.g. per-app VPN, encryption for data at rest, jailbreak and rooting detection, or passcode, EULA and expiration policies. Try it out and go live in the cloud or implement on premise using the rapid-deployment solution;
- Afaria, an award-winning mobile device management solution (MDM), securely connects iOS, Android, or Windows devices to the enterprise network. Try it out and subscribe in the cloud, or implement on premise using the rapid-deployment solution;
- SAP Mobile Documents, a mobile content management solution (MCM), securely mobilizes sensitive corporate content like e.g. product catalogs and prize lists for sales execs or repair manuals for field workers, with options to share or present content right from the device. Implement on premise or in a hybrid cloud/on-premise landscape using the rapid-deployment solution.

If you have acquired the licenses but not yet implemented Afaria, or Mobile Documents, or SAP Mobile App Protection by Mocana, don’t hesitate anymore. The rapid-deployment solution makes it really easy to install and configure the components, and set up the security policies for the apps and contents accessed by your employees, temp workers, consultants or consumers on their mobile devices.
We regularly ask our customers about the 3 foremost goals prompting them to opt for the SAP Mobile Secure RDS. One CIO of a well-known consumer products company, a Fortune 500 business, replied, “Security, Security, Security”. He got that with the Mobile Secure products, he said, and he appreciated the speed and quality of their configuration with the rapid-deployment solution. Another response highlighted the importance of the user experience for pervasive adoption: Mobile app users expect consumer-grade ease of use for all their apps.
App or device security policies may elevate the threshold for using an app, and hence they have to be applied and tested with care. Only when the end users of mobile apps really like using those apps, use them all the time and ask for more apps of the same quality, IT did a good job in defining a mobile strategy that works. Key to this strategy is a deep empathy with the mobile app user and a profound understanding of their app use behavior. The Mobile Secure RDS helps IT implement the highest levels of enterprise-grade mobile security, yet the end user who consumes these SAP-secured business apps or corporate content will barely perceive a difference to the consumer apps she is used to.
