By Amanda Do

To help businesses support BYOD programs, Good Technology has announced that its Good for Enterprise suite now enables enterprise IT departments to deploy secure access for workers on Amazon's Kindle Fire. The solution allows organisations to better manage their applications and business data whilst safeguarding corporate data on Android-based mobile devices. As the proliferation of mobile devices continues to pose challenges to IT departments, with Good for (the) Enterprise, these challenges are addressed and the activation procedures are easier to deploy for IT administrators to allow secure mobile working.Good Technology combines award-winning enterprise-grade mobile security and control with an exceptional user experience, allowing enterprise and government employees to connect, communicate, and collaborate on iPads, iPhones, Android, Windows Phone and other leading smartphone platforms.

SYDNEY, 19 March, 2012: Good Technology, the leading provider of secure, managed enterprise mobility for a range of mobile devices, today announced that the Good for Enterpriseâ„¢ suite can now be deployed on Kindle Fire, allowing enterprise IT departments to securely and efficiently manage applications and business data on yet another widely-utilised, consumer tablet.

According to a January 2012 report from Infinite Research, there has been increasingly strong customer demand for enterprise tablets. Shipments are expected to increase from 13.69 million units in 2011 to 96.38 million units in 2016. The report goes on to say that, at a minimum, adoption levels will be in-line with the historical growth rates established by smartphones(1).

The growing enterprise use of tablet devices, compounded by customer demand and the fact that an estimated 4.5 million Kindle Fire devices have been sold since its November 2011 release, prompted Good Technology to invest in securing this popular new device.  Demand for Good for Enterprise on the Kindle Fire also exemplifies how the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend is impacting businesses today. In fact, a recent survey of Good's customers showed that over 70 percent of businesses are currently supporting BYOD programs.

"Our latest device activation report confirmed that the Android OS continued to be adopted and supported by the enterprise," said Jim Watson, Vice President and Corporate General Manager APAC. "By certifying Good for Enterprise for use on Kindle Fire, we are further enabling IT departments to support the Android OS without fear of data loss or corruption, as well as offering their customers more choice and effectively enabling bring-your-own-device programs."

The Good for Enterprise app for use on Kindle Fire is available now in the Amazon Appstore for Android. Use of Good for Enterprise for Kindle Fire requires a Good for Enterprise server and client access license (CAL). Mobile users should contact their IT administrator for activation procedures.
