Good Technology, the leader in multiplatform enterprise mobility, today released numbers which show that the financial services, technology and healthcare industries are seeing the greatest adoption of the iPad for business use. The data comes from an analysis of Good Technology’s user base, which includes over 4,000 enterprise customers, whose iPad deployments range from one to over 1,000 iPads. The company also released an update to its Good for Enterprise application in the App Store, which delivers a rich user experience tailored for the larger iPad screen and enhances IT’s ability to secure and manage iPads in the enterprise.
“We took a close look at our customers who have deployed iPad devices so far,” said John Herrema, senior vice president of corporate strategy at Good Technology. “We found that the financial services sector dominated, accounting for 36 percent of Good’s iPad activations to date. The technology sector came in second at 11 percent, followed closely by healthcare at 10 percent. We believe these industries are embracing the iPad because its unique design makes it easier to perform time-sensitive, mission-critical tasks. Good assures IT departments that those tasks are accomplished via secure access to corporate data and applications giving them full IT management and control.”
Good Technology customer Active Interest Media implemented Good on the iPad so employees can check out devices when traveling. “By running Good on the iPad, we’re giving our employees another device choice to easily perform their work from remote locations,” said Nelson Saenz, director of IT for Active Interest Media. “The new optimized version of Good For Enterprise is an excellent fit for the iPad format. It offers a great user experience, as well as the enterprise-class security and management Good is renowned for.”
The Good for Enterprise iPad App delivers secure real-time push synchronization of Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Domino email, calendar and contacts. Mobile users will enjoy an experience that is as intuitive and familiar as the desktop, minimizing IT intervention thereby reducing support costs. IT administrators can rest easy with the highest levels of security and management including separation of corporate and personal data, remote wipe of corporate data, on-device data encryption, and the ability to manage multiple devices from a single, web-based management console. To run the application, users need the necessary back-end software with a username and a password available from their IT administrator.
