Sierraware releases VMI-in-a-Box

Sierraware said it has introduced VMI-in-a-Box, which allows small businesses to easily and affordably secure their mobile apps.

This new, consolidated solution makes it easy for organizations to securely host mobile apps in the cloud and keep sensitive data off of mobile devices. VMI-in-a-Box simplifies the deployment of SierraVMI Virtual Mobile Infrastructure by providing an integrated and tested hardware appliance or a virtual appliance for KVM, Xen, and VMware ESX hypervisors.

BYOD initiatives have created new opportunities for organizations, but they have also introduced security and application management challenges. Businesses must look for new ways to manage and update apps, support a wide array of different mobile device platforms, and protect data without touching users´ personal data. Virtual Mobile Infrastructure solves these challenges by allowing organizations to host mobile apps securely in a data center and streaming these apps to any device at any location.

VMI-in-a-Box offers all of the benefits of Virtual Mobile Infrastructure, but it also accelerates deployment and provides verified virtual and hardware appliances to optimize performance. It enables organizations to enforce strong authentication for mobile apps, reduce the risk of data loss from stolen devices, and satisfy regulatory requirements such as HIPAA compliance.

Sierraware is a leading provider of virtualization and security solutions that change the way applications are accessed and data is secured. Sierraware´s virtual mobile infrastructure (VMI) software empowers developers to support all mobile platforms with a single app and to protect data and monitor user activity.
