Imagine, that during the set up of smartphones and tablets you would never have to enter a password again and you can ensure that only devices which are managed by AppTec, have access to your email server.

This is precisely what AppTec’s Universal Gateway secures.

This is an enormous advance in security and a powerful simplifying of your employees’ initial set up for mobile devices.

Advantages at a glance:

  • The user opens their email application; receives a message, without having to provide the corporate registration credentials. The submitting of passwords is not necessary and no complex certificate structure needs to be installed.
  • The end user changes their own corporate identifier. The smartphone does not need to be actualized and the phone can be used continually, without interruption.
  • A hostile party tries to gain access to the end user’s exchange account, by trying to guess the password. However, this attempt is futile, because the system is extremely secure with our three-factor-authentication. In this case, the device acts as a hardware-token.
  • Only those smartphones and tablets that are managed by AppTec´s Enterprise Mobility Management can establish a connection to the email server. Additionally, IT can also define a guest list.
  • During a roll-out, the mobile devices can initially be placed into a quarantine and once additional tests have been performed, the exchange-admin can release them.

Additional optional implementations

Depending on the scope of the add-on (KERBEROS-authentication), the effort for the implementation can require between a half to a full consulting day.

On the licensing side, the “Universal Gateway” is free. However, it is only made available, when AppTec is contracted to perform the implementation.

During the annual Mobile Enterprise Vendor Benchmark (Experton Quadrants), which is conducted by the Experton Group, the Swiss AppTec GmbH, on their first attempt, was awarded the “Rising Star 2015” designation as a leading technology. In the category of “Mobile Device Management Software Solutions for Smartphones and Tablets”, AppTec had to contend with such IT-heavyweights as IBM and Microsoft, as well as 18 additional providers.

During the annual Mobile Enterprise Vendor Benchmark (Experton Quadrants), which is conducted by the Experton Group, the Swiss AppTec GmbH, on their first attempt, was awarded the “Rising Star 2015” designation as a leading technology. In the category of “Mobile Device Management Software Solutions for Smartphones and Tablets”, AppTec had to contend with such IT-heavyweights as IBM and Microsoft, as well as 18 additional providers.

The analysts especially highlighted the highly flexible solutions portfolio, which easily adapts to the customer´s demands, as well as AppTec´s transparent strategy. The company operates successfully and goal oriented in the market segment of Mobile Device Management, which – according to the Experton Group – is growing in importance and which has garnered an ever increasing attention from the IT decision makers within large corporations.

The AppTec GmbH was founded 2011 in Basel. Even from their inception in 2011, the company has been able to secure more than 2500 customers, with their thin and easily accessible Enterprise Mobile Manager. The remote management solution for mobile user devices is especially attractive with its intuitively operated management console and numerous useful security functions. Within this solution, the customer is given the option to utilize their own in-house servers or the cloud based service offered by AppTec.

Especially in the area of pricing, the Swiss create a great impression. Comparably low monthly licensing fees and the free subscription plan for fewer than 25 devices, make the AppTec solutions attractive, even to smaller companies.

AppTec works with Samsung to deliver Mobility Management Solution in the retail industry Mobile devices are taking the retail industry by the storm! Retailers are increasingly embracing mobile services and applications to better engage with customers on the showroom floor and improve customer experience. Leading this trend, AppTec and Samsung worked together to bring an innovative solution for our enterprise customer.

AppTec, a SEAP Silver Partner, develops in-house and cloud-based mobile management solutions to manage application, configurations and ensure security of company data on smart phones and tablets. On top of their existing solution, AppTec integrated the Samsung KNOX APIs to provide extensive features for the best performance in a retail environment.

To stay ahead of the market, Dosenbach-Ochsner AG, a wholesale and retail distributor of sports footwear was looking for a kiosk solution to run advertisements and provide product information on a tablet.

Their main concern was device security, so that local users couldn´t jump out from their predefined URL and open unauthorized web pages. In addition, Dosenbach-Ochsner also addressed the need to automatically delete contents of data within a certain time interval.

After review of these requests, AppTec was able to develop an URL based Kiosk Mode with the KNOX Standard SDK – Kiosk API´s and provide extended features such as link jump control to prevent jump out from URL via hyperlink.

The enhanced solution was tested on Samsung´s sample devices before delivery. With the implementation of AppTec´s solution, Dosenbach-Ochsner is now able to remotely and securely manages their advertisements in retail stores while reducing the cost of their IT field services.
