Nutshell and IBM: Bringing the best in security
North East technology company Nutshell Apps partners with industry giant IBM to offer class-leading security for self-build mobile apps
We recently announced our partnership with IBM – together we’re providing our clients with the most comprehensive enterprise device management solution.
By expanding our portfolio to include MaaS360, we’re addressing the rapidly growing trend of employee smartphone and tablet use in the workplace, and our clients’ requirement to securely manage them.
Alex Nichol, our Product Director, commented: “The biggest question for most organisations when confronting the enormous challenge of enterprise mobility is how to build a suite of multi-platform mobile apps that deliver genuine value quickly, cost-efficiently and with minimal risk.”
As Nutshell Apps are the world’s only no-code mobile app development platform that enables non-technical people to build, test and deploy their own business apps without writing a single line of code, they’ve solved that problem by “allowing business analysts, operations managers and frontline staff to solve their own mobility challenges without bothering the IT department or burning cash on expensive developers.”
Mr Nichol continued: “For most SMEs, Nutshell’s built-in encryption and validation tools are everything they need. For larger enterprises, however, especially those in the government or healthcare sectors, security concerns extend well beyond the technology itself and into the prevention of misuse by employees”.
This partnership is providing a level of security and data integrity that would fit most enterprise-level clients. We are offering a single platform through which to manage corporate-issued devices and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) initiatives, with a suite of tools that allow companies to control how employees use their mobile devices and how they interact with sensitive data.
“We’re thrilled to have partnered with IBM as we continue to help organisations of all sizes drive genuine innovation. We’re right there on the frontline, as our clients prepare for the next evolution in enterprise mobility, which is an incredibly exciting place to be.” Martyn Cuthbert, MD Nutshell Apps.
