Blue Hill Research recently published a Market Alert written by Tony Rizzo, an industry veteran and respected analyst in enterprise mobility. Tony wrote the paper about SAP partner Mocana, entitled “Mocana Taps Perfectly into the New Mobile Enterprise with its Atlas Platform”. He did a great job discussing the relevance of SAP Mobile Secure and the app wrapping solution that SAP resells known as SAP Mobile App Protection by Mocana.
Over the past two years mobility has become a deeper and far more serious concern for enterprises. The market has shifted to an end-user security focus, fundamentally shifting the perception companies’ take when it comes to enterprise security. Mocana and SAP have been partnering to solve the problem of simplifying the connectivity experience for users, aiming to delight them with a nicer experience, namely through a mobile app security capability. We’ve worked a lot on the how the connectivity offering dovetails with the key value proposition of SAP Fiori UX – creating delightful user experiences.
The whitepaper hilights some key reasons why users typically have problems with connected mobile apps including SAP Fiori. I’ve greatly simplified them for this summary, but if you’ve experienced any of these I encourage you to read the full paper and check out the joint solution.
- Users typically need to go through a VPN login process and authenticate themselves
- Prior to authenticating against a network, users may need to sign on to their devices for MDM/MAM
- Apps may have an additional login, and possibly a secure container login.
- Users may lose their network connections and risk losing access to the various networks and apps, requiring re-login process for single or multiple mobile apps
I’m sure you can relate to the pain of multiple logins and how they can negatively impact app adoption. Learn a bit more about how our joint solution addresses these complexities fir SAP Fiori and other apps by reading the full whitepaper here.
