Fixmo Unveils New Enterprise Mobility Management Suite

Canadian security company Fixmo unveiled its next-generation mobile security and enterprise mobility management platform to protect sensitive data on enterprise networks.

Canadian security company Fixmo unveiled its next-generation mobile security and enterprise mobility management platform to protect sensitive data on enterprise networks.

The new Fixmo Enterprise Mobility Platform offers a full suite of modular services for protecting sensitive business data, managing a wide range of mobile devices and apps, and providing support for bring-your-own-device in the enterprise, Fixmo announced at CTIA Wireless in Las Vegas on Tuesday. FixmoEMP’s modular suite of mobility services can be deployed as a complete end-to-end enterprise-mobility-management platform or as individual services that extend existing mobile device management and mobile app management systems, the company said.

“It’s no longer about ‘bringing devices to work,’ it’s about ‘bringing work to devices’ in a secure and compliant manner,” said Rick Segal, CEO of Fixmo.

The new centralized management and administration platform offers modules for device integrity verification, data loss prevention, and enterprise gateway service, among other security features. Fixmo Sentinel is a device integrity verification module which ensures mobile devices are not tampered with. Fixmo SafeZone is a defense-grade secure workplace module which secures custom business applications with defense-grade data encryption and IT policy controls, and comes with its own software development kit (Fixmo SafeGuard SDK).

Launched earlier this month, Fixmo SharePlace is a government-grade DLP solution for Microsoft SharePoint documents and provides full control over which content can be accessed and stored on mobile devices. Fixmo Secure Gesture offers a gesture-based authentication technology which can be used authenticate users attempting to access sensitive business apps or data.

Fixmo SafeLock MDM is a complete mobile device management for iOS, Android and BlackBerry devices, and Fixmo Enterprise Data Connector is a gateway service located behind the enterprise firewall. It allows users to securely access the corporate intranet without requiring third party VPN software. And finally, Fixmo EMP Policy Engine allows organizations to define custom policies across different services, such as triggering a lock/wipe of Fixmo SafeZone based on a security violation detected by Fixmo Sentinel, the company said.

“Fixmo EMP brings our various industry-leading technologies together into a newly federated platform that is extremely flexible and customizable,” said Tyler Lessard, Chief Marketing Officer at Fixmo.

With Fixmo EMP, organizations will be able to meet complex security and compliance requirements they have to meet in regulated markets. It can be deployed either on-premise or as a cloud-based subscription service, the company said.

Fixmo recently won contracts with the National Security Agency, Central Intelligence Agency, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to provide security software. Fixmo primarily sells to government customers, such as the Department of Homeland Security and the US Air Force, although it has customers in the financial services and healthcare industries.

Fixmo’s mobile security products allow organizations to roll out BYOD policies that protect sensitive data and secure networks. Its product portfolio includes an encrypted sandbox, digital fingerprint technology to detect when the mobile operating system has been modified, and methods to detect compliance breaches.

The underlying software in Fixmo’s products was originally developed by the National Security Agency.
