Mocana today launched its Atlas™ extended enterprise platform, a first-of-its-kind solution that greatly simplifies the deployment of securely connected enterprise mobile apps, while improving the end-user experience. Mocana’s new scalable platform is based on a revolutionary architecture that will catalyze mass adoption of enterprise mobile apps.
Shipping now, the Mocana Atlas platform powers the tap-and-go simplicity and always-on ubiquity of the Mocana ON™ experience. Mocana Atlas combines ease of use and a true mobile app experience for end users with the stringent security and control requirements that IT demands, both prerequisites for the mainstream adoption of enterprise mobile apps.
“With Mocana Atlas, we are redefining currently accepted enterprise mobility practices and moving beyond the poorly designed, incumbent remote access solutions that belong to the era of laptops and PCs. Atlas is the first end-to-end platform that is purpose-built to bring a true mobile app experience to organizations at a fraction of today’s cost,” said Alan Panezic, vice president of products at Mocana. “We call this the Mocana ON experience, where end users can connect to organizations’ secure perimeters from enterprise mobile apps as quickly and effortlessly as they do with personal mobile apps. As a result, the Atlas platform empowers organizations to confidently expose their business and compliance-critical data to mobile apps through the edge of their networks.”
The Atlas extended enterprise platform is the first drop-in solution that delivers security at the true endpoint —the app itself, combined with secure connectivity, termination and contextual policy enforcement at the network edge—all requirements for large-scale enterprise mobile app adoption. The platform consists of the Mocana Atlas Appliance™, Mocana AtlasConnect, Mocana Mobile App Protection (MAP™) and Mocana Compass. Together, they provide:
- A complete, end-to-end solution for securing mobile apps and establishing secure per-app connectivity with enterprise and cloud network perimeters, while empowering IT’s control mandate and end users’ needs for a native mobile app user experience.
- A simple solution at the edge that delivers fine-grained access control and easy integration with existing enterprise systems of enforcement.
- Unmatched scalability and performance to meet mobility’s demands, driven by an increasing number of extended enterprise users and the per-app connectivity architecture that enterprises need for mobile.
- Persistent and seamless management of all users’ connectivity state at the edge, delivering an “always on” experience for all apps, across all supported device platforms.
- Dramatically lower enterprise mobile total cost of ownership.
“As corporate data is pulled to an increasing number of mobile devices, legacy laptop-era device and network-security tools fall short in BYOD deployments,” said Chris Hazelton, research director, enterprise mobility, at 451 Research. “Mobile application management with app-level VPNs allows IT to secure corporate data traffic. However, as an organization deploys a growing number of mobile apps, IT will need MAM offerings that can scale to support a large number of apps and users.”
Unique Features and Tools
The Atlas extended enterprise platform’s features and tools enable users to get connected and stay connected quickly and easily, while offering enterprises and developers the greatest flexibility in providing secure mobile access, including:
- Simple enrollment that eliminates the complexity associated with deploying certificate-based two-factor authentication and simple sign-on.
- The Mocana Atlas Appliance, which effortlessly authenticates and connects any app to back-end systems and data, while providing the control, simplicity and scale that are prerequisites for mainstream adoption of mobile apps.
- Mocana Mobile App Protection™ (MAP), Mocana’s market-leading Android™ and iOS mobile app-wrapping security technology, to secure new and existing apps in minutes.
- Mocana Compass™, a secure enterprise mobile browser, to securely access existing web workflow, corporate intranet sites, web apps and portals.
- AtlasConnect, a collection of security libraries and APIs that enables app and mobile end point container developers to tightly integrate with the Atlas platform.

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Bradley Holt, a Developer Advocate with IBM Cloud Data Services, discussed...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
