Alliance brings TigerText secure enterprise messaging to MobileIron AppConnect ecosystem.

Santa Monica, CA (November 12, 2014) – TigerText, the leader in secure real-time messaging for the enterprise, today announced it has officially joined the MobileIron AppConnect ecosystem. TigerText’s integration enables MobileIron customers to now securely text both within and outside their companies while enabling IT to enforce messaging policies that secure corporate data.

MobileIron, the leader in Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM), provides its AppConnect technology to third-party mobile app developers. With AppConnect-enabled apps, companies can provide employees with the native application experiences they want, while enabling auto-configuration, data containerization, and secure tunneling to protect corporate data.

“More and more enterprises are moving their employees’ work from PCs to mobile devices, which increases the need for fast, secure communication that can support a mobile workforce,” said Justin Nelson, Chief Sales Officer at TigerText. “Our integration with MobileIron gives IT confidence that sensitive data will not be lost or put at risk when accessed via mobile devices, while still enabling users to do their jobs more efficiently and effectively with TigerText’s secure messaging solution.”

Fully compliant with industry regulations, TigerText enables secure and compliant communication between employees, as well as between employees and customers, clients, and associates outside the company. Features include message delivery and read receipts, messages that permanently delete after a set period, message recall, group messaging, and more. In addition to security benefits, enterprises using TigerText see improved team collaboration, streamlined communication, and accelerated workflows.

By partnering with MobileIron, TigerText is well positioned to take its application, which is widely deployed in healthcare, and expand its reach across other industries. As part of MobileIron’s AppConnect ecosystem, IT departments can now instantly push the TigerText app to thousands of employees’ devices and manage access using MobileIron’s advanced console, while end users can begin securely texting colleagues in just a few easy steps.

“Our customers increasingly need app management around secure communication, particularly in highly regulated industries,” said John Spencer, Vice President of Ecosystem at MobileIron. “With this integration, we’re bringing together the power and security of the TigerText platform with the industry’s most powerful app management capabilities to help protect and safeguard our joint customers’ corporate data.”
