'Good' news as mobility provider wins Aussie BYOD contract

27 Nov 13

Good Technology has revealed that Slater & Gordon Lawyers has deployed Good for Enterprise (GFE) to support the firm’s fleet of corporate and BYOD smartphones and tablets.

As a result of the agreement, the secure mobility provider replaces Microsoft's ActiveSync in connecting and configuring mobile devices across the Australian law firm.

Slater & Gordon’s IT department assessed the mobile solutions available on the market and from a shortlist of two, elected to trial GFE.

“Good’s secure container approach means that corporate and personal information is strictly separated on the device, which is an important distinction from an employee perspective when they are supplying their own phone,” Eric Yew, Infrastructure Manager, Slater & Gordon.

“We also liked the fact that GFE offers multi-platform support.”

GFE has been certified as Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 4 Augmented (EAL4+), which is the highest certification level recognised internationally under the Common Criteria program and is also the only solution to meet this level of certification on both iOS and Android operating systems.

The program is conducted regularly on products deployed within environments handling sensitive government data.

“Good for Enterprise is a very cost effective on-ramp for organisations either beginning or in the early stage of their mobile strategy, or what we call the ‘Run’ phase,” says Gavin Jones, VP Sales & GM ANZ, Good Technology.

“From there, organisations will typically move to the ‘Grow’ part of their mobile journey, which is mainly about enhanced productivity.

“The third and final stage of the mobile journey, and one that we are very excited about partnering with all our clients on, is the ‘Transform’ phase.

"This is where organisations are reengineering business processes, or creating entirely new processes, by leveraging the power of mobility.”
