Armor5 and SoftBank Partner to Deliver Zero Touch Secure Mobile Cloud Service

Armor5 has formed a partnership with SoftBank Telecom Corp. to provide enterprises with an on-demand service that delivers secure access to cloud services, enterprise applications and intranet resources to any device on any network. Through this partnership, SoftBank becomes the first telecom to offer its customers a 'last mile cloud security' solution. The Armor5-SoftBank Secure Mobile Cloud offers enterprises complete device diversity without forcing a trade-off between security and privacy or sacrificing the user experience. This unique cloud service: Delivers Last Mile Security - Instantly prevents data loss from any cloud service by providing a highly secure on-demand cloud security layer which leaves zero data on the device and eliminates risk of data loss; Extends Policies to the Cloud - Easily enforce additional corporate policies (e.g. time fencing, geo fencing) on top of popular cloud services like Google Apps, Salesforce.com, Workday etc; Aggregates Cross-Cloud Analytics - Presents a comprehensive view into cloud service usage across multiple public and private cloud services including individual session duration, most frequently used services etc; Protects Employee Privacy - The service is only 'on' when users access corporate apps and data, relieving enterprises of privacy exposure during personal use. Corporations can also avoid privacy breaches resulting from remote wipes, which are unnecessary with Armor5 since data is not resident or cached on the device; Preserves the User Experience - Works with any internet-enabled device using a standard browser, without installs or configuration changes on the device or enterprise DMZ, while operating at a zero performance deficit. The Armor5-SoftBank service achieves high-velocity on-demand security by virtualizing the user's experience and placing the security function in the cloud, where it is isolated from the device and the network. Since the policy controls to cloud services and enterprise resources are contained in the cloud, they can be seamlessly extended to enforce access to any cloud service from any device, any network. The Armor5-SoftBank service lets users choose whether an online session is work-related or not. Non work-related activity is not tracked or monitored by the company and therefore the business is not responsible for the user's actions. But when a user accesses cloud services, enterprise applications, data or content, the online session is tracked and logged by the IT department.
