The platform helps standardize resources, reduce IT costs and speed up the development of software.
-- The Mobile Secure Desktop: A virtual architecture that provides end users with quick and easy access to applications and data across devices, locations and networks. This solution streamlines and automates desktop management and provides IT with the ability to apply location-aware, policy-driven access to corporate resources to ensure higher levels of security and compliance.
