Added BYOD Security with Box for Aruba WorkSpace

By

Savvy business leaders know that securing new BYOD (“bring your own device”) programs means more than just locking down devices. Mobile apps are now under the scrutiny of security teams as potential sources of data leakage. The Box mobile apps already give you a ton of valuable security features, like device pinning, two-step login verification, the ability to set passcode locks and the choice to block saving content offline. But what if your company needs even more mobile management options?

That’s why Box partners with the best, including a new integration we’re announcing today with Aruba Networks. This summer, Box will be one of the key launch partners available on Aruba Workspace, a new component of Aruba’s ClearPass Access Management System that secures company data and reduces BYOD costs.

To help manage mobile deployments more easily, Aruba WorkSpace creates a separate, fully encrypted area on any iOS device for business applications and content. This gives IT full control over the corporate information in this encrypted space – including the content accessed, edited and shared with Box – but no visibility into personal areas of the device in order to protect employee privacy. Admins also have added functionality like remote wiping and device locking just in case a user forgets their phone while traveling or away from the office.

This combination of Box’s powerful iOS mobile app with Aruba’s app-centric approach to business content security will help the most security-conscious businesses harness the power of mobile productivity.
