Synchronoss and Goldman Sachs come together for enterprise mobility partnership
Cloud solutions provider Synchronoss Technologies has announced a new venture to develop mobile solutions leveraging technology from investment bank Goldman Sachs.
The move has come about with both parties expressing a significant market need and opportunity in mobile security. Goldman Sachs’ development team has already built Lagoon, a mobile app management (MAM) development framework built in a secure container designed to satisfy compliance requirements.
The venture also represents an added component of Synchronoss’ Enterprise Business Unit (EBU), which offers mobile content management, personal information management and mobile data protection for clients in the financial services, life sciences and healthcare industries.
At the time, Dave Schuette, executive vice president and president of the enterprise business unit at Synchronoss, explained: “The line between the enterprise and the consumer is blurring and companies need to adopt a realistic perspective on risk to ramp up productivity and help their business and their people operate in an uncompromised digital experience.”
Now, balancing the demand for increased mobile access and capabilities with the need to protect information assets is key. “Providing our clients and employees with secure access to data and applications, any time, any place, on the device of their choosing, is the basis of our mobile strategy,” commented Don Duet, global co-head of the technology division at Goldman Sachs.
He added: “We’ve worked hard to ensure that the container in which our applications and data reside is highly secure. At the same time, we believe in delivering well designed applications that are intuitive and deeply integrated to the enterprise.”
