Webalo Partners with Symantec to Protect Critical Enterprise Applications and Data Delivered in Minutes to Mobile Devices

LOS ANGELES --(Business Wire)--

Webalo, Inc., today announced a partnership with Symantec (News - Alert) Corp. to include Webalo's cloud-based, self-service enterprise mobility platform in the Symantec Sealed Program, which assures enterprise customers of Symantec App Center that the apps they buy are protected in a comprehensive data and mobile application security workspace providing enterprise-class security, authentication, encryption, and content controls.

Webalo's (News - Alert) technology, which uses a step-by-step, point-and-click configuration process to create and deploy enterprise-to-mobile capabilities in minutes, provides its own internal security, but as part of the Symantec Sealed Program, Webalo will integrate Symantec's security and management features, such as encryption, authentication, data loss prevention policies, app distribution and revocation, into its platform. As a Symantec Sealed partner, Webalo's technology is integrated and tested to work with Symantec App Center, providing a seamless and secure centralized mobile workforce productivity management console as part of the Symantec Mobile Management Suite.

As a Symantec Sealed app, Webalo will be visible to enterprise customers that are leveraging the Symantec App Center. Customers will then be able to use a single enterprise mobility platform for securing and managing apps, devices and content with confidence on both iOS and Android (News - Alert) smartphones and tablets. Webalo will distribute the "Symantec Sealed" version of its product on third-party platforms such as Apple's App Store and Google (News - Alert) Play.

"The integration of Webalo's enterprise mobility platform with Symantec's App Center will give corporate IT several things - the security they must have together with the speed and simplicity they didn't realize was possible for creating bi-directional, interactive mobile access to the enterprise," said Peter Price, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officerof Webalo. "This new channel will provide Symantec customers with an approach to enterprise mobility that's 100 times faster and a fraction of the cost of traditional mobile application development."

"The Symantec Sealed Program allows our partners to include Symantec's enterprise grade protection within their apps, giving IT organizations integrated and seamless controls over their data without compromising their user's experience on their mobile devices," said Chandra Rangan, Senior Director of Product Marketing, Enterprise Mobility Group, Symantec. "With Webalo as part of the Symantec Sealed Program, our customers will have access to an innovative approach to enterprise mobility to ensure a productive and agile mobile workforce. Symantec customers will be able to easily deploy Webalo, which has been integrated and pre-tested to work within their secure workspace with the Symantec Mobile Management Suite."
