Acquisition Brings Native Access to Microsoft SharePoint to the Fixmo SafeZone Secure Container for iOS and Android
STERLING, Va. & ALEXANDRIA, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Fixmo, the mobile risk management (MRM) company, today announced it has acquired the mobile product offering for secure access to Microsoft SharePoint from Virginia-based IT consulting firm Twin-Soft Corporation. As a result of the product acquisition, Fixmo will offer its customers secure and compliant access to Microsoft SharePoint from within the Fixmo SafeZone secure workspace. The fully integrated native application will offer defense-grade security and policy controls, highly optimized performance, and a best-in-class user experience for accessing Microsoft SharePoint documents, dashboards, forms, lists and workflow on the latest iOS and Android devices.
Twin-Soft has been delivering systems integration (SI) services for enterprise portals, content management systems and business intelligence solutions to Defense and Civilian Government clients for over a decade. With deep expertise and hands-on experience spanning the full lifecycle of Microsoft SharePoint deployments, they have developed a portfolio of services and products that help public and private sector organizations maximize returns on their Microsoft SharePoint investments without compromising security or compliance. The mobile product offering acquired by Fixmo enables native access to Microsoft SharePoint on smartphones and tablets while maintaining custom policy controls and access rights for users on mobile devices. It also provides the ability to enforce location-based policy controls and multi-factor authentication requirements – all without the need to open up full access to SharePoint Web Services.
As a result of the acquisition, Fixmo is now offering the industry's first fully-integrated secure container solution for smartphones and tablets with federated access to corporate email, calendaring, browsing, content management, document management, document sharing, enterprise workflow and custom applications through a single defense-grade secure container environment. Fixmo SafeZone keeps all business-related applications and data – including content from Microsoft SharePoint – password protected and completely separated from the personal side of the device. All corporate data is encrypted while at-rest and in-transit with FIPS 140-2 AES 256-bit encryption and can be easily locked or wiped without impacting the personal data on the device. With the addition of a native solution for Microsoft SharePoint, Fixmo SafeZone customers can now enjoy safe and compliant access to corporate documents, workflow and applications on the devices of their choice.
“Many organizations are now relying on Microsoft SharePoint for enterprise document management and workflow. But until now, it has been extremely difficult to enable access to these systems on mobile devices in a way that meets the security and compliance requirements of government agencies and organizations in regulated industries,” said Rick Segal, CEO at Fixmo. “With integrated support for Microsoft SharePoint, Fixmo SafeZone now delivers a whole new level of productivity for employees, ensuring they can access the information they need to get their jobs done anywhere, anytime without compromising corporate security or compliance.”
“Fixmo has emerged as a leader and innovator in the mobile security and compliance space, and we are thrilled that they have chosen Twin-Soft’s technology for delivering mobile access to Microsoft SharePoint to their growing client base,” said Jim Harrison, Principal and Co-Founder at Twin-Soft. “We will continue to expand our own IT consulting practices and look forward to offering best-in-class integration services around Fixmo’s powerful new offering for secure mobile access to Microsoft SharePoint.”
Fixmo will be showcasing Fixmo SafeZone and its new secure mobile solution for Microsoft SharePoint at the upcoming Gartner Symposium ITxpo in Orlando, FL from October 21 – 25 at booth #839.
