Cybersecurity expert Intercede today announced that it is teaming up with Citrix, a leader in mobile workspaces, to offer Intercede’s Citrix Ready® MyID technology to XenMobile customers. The MyID platform and XenMobile provide the credentials required to enable the secure signing and encryption of corporate email messages delivered by Citrix WorxMail. This allows customers to utilise the strongest level of security on mobile devices, which was traditionally only possible on a desktop PC with the use of a physical smart card.
Maintaining robust security measures for an increasingly mobile workforce is a growing concern for enterprises. Intercede’s MyID platform allows EMM vendors to bolster the security of enterprise applications and offer customers strong authentication solutions to meet the highest security standards.
Intercede and Citrix help customers meet government security standards, including FIPS 201-2 and SP800-157, a vital requirement for US Federal customers and those operating in associated industries.
Intercede CEO Richard Parris said: “Citrix is the latest high-profile EMM vendor to select Intercede to deliver secure credentials to meet the needs of its wide-ranging customer base. The work we are doing together demonstrates Intercede’s growing reputation as a market-leading mobile security specialist capable of large-scale deployments of its trusted solutions.
“Cyberattacks targeting enterprises are becoming increasingly frequent and the security of corporate data has become a top priority for businesses. Coupled with the move towards mobile workforces, it is vital that enterprises adopt EMM solutions with the highest levels of security to avoid falling victim to hackers.”
Rajiv Taori, VP Product Management at Citrix, said: “Intercede’s market leading credential management platform has enabled us to provide customers with more advanced levels of mobile security.”
