Webalo’s self-service enterprise mobility platform


Los Angeles, CA – Webalo, Inc., today announced that it is part of the MobileIron AppConnect ecosystem. Webalo provides employees with a cloud-based platform for quickly and easily configuring and deploying bi-directional, transactional, interactive enterprise-to-mobile capabilities for pennies an app and, integrated with MobileIron AppConnect, IT has the policy controls it needs to secure and manage corporate data.

"There are several options organizations can use for mobilizing corporate data and traditional desktop applications," said Eric Klein, Enterprise Mobility Software Analyst at VDC Research, "to date, however, many vendors have utilized a highly structured approach that relies on programming skills and that can lock an organization into using that approach. Webalo's automated approach to app development is both flexible and unique and is very synergistic with partners like MobileIron."

MobileIron, the leader in security and management for mobile apps, documents, and devices, provides its AppConnect technology to third party mobile app developers. With MobileIron AppConnect apps, companies can give their employees the best third-party application experiences with apps that have been enabled with auto-configuration, data containerization, and secure tunneling to protect corporate data.

As part of MobileIron’s trusted ecosystem of apps, Webalo provides MobileIron customers with an enterprise-ready solution that delivers a virtually instantaneous ROI and gives businesses a single enterprise mobility platform for confidently generating, securing, and managing apps and content on both iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.

"Keeping pace with changing mobile technology is difficult for any IT organization,” said Ojas Rege, VP Strategy, MobileIron. “The ability of Webalo to provide a quality mobile experience for existing enterprise services combined with the strong policy and security framework of MobileIron AppConnect allows customers to mobilize their most important business processes quickly and securely."

The integration of Webalo with MobileIron AppConnect delivers a seamless user experience for securely accessing and sharing enterprise applications and data on mobile devices while letting IT administrators manage content policies and access controls at the enterprise level. IT administrators can set policies for content security, including the ability to selectively wipe the app container and all its contents without affecting other device data.

"Making our enterprise mobility platform available through MobileIron’s AppConnect ecosystem will greatly expand customers’ mobile options,” said Peter Price, Co-Founder and CEO of Webalo. “The Webalo platform is easy for anyone to master, and its automation capabilities work out-of-the-box, as part of the MobileIron infrastructure, delivering enterprise mobility 100 times faster and at a fraction of the cost of traditional mobile application development tools."
