A big welcome to Nukona – customers, partners and employees! We officially announced this morning that Nukona, a provider of mobile application management (MAM), is now part of Symantec. This means that our two teams are officially working together to provide both Nukona and Symantec customers with the mobile solutions needed to protect and isolate corporate data and applications across both corporate owned and personally owned devices. We are very excited to welcome Nukona to the team and look forward to working together.

We have already begun work on incorporating Nukona’s solutions into Symantec’s enterprise mobility portfolio. Our goal is to provide Symantec customers access to enhanced mobile protection and management functionality and Nukona customers access to a broader set of integrated mobile solutions from one vendor – Symantec. Together we will help customers secure enterprise critical mobile apps and data while managing and protecting them with policies, including authenticating users, encrypting sensitive files, preventing data leakage and selectively wiping corporate data. 

With unprecedented growth rates surrounding the adoption of mobile devices and apps, our customers are faced with the daunting task of protecting and managing the native apps, data and environment of these devices. The acquisition of Nukona by Symantec will allow us to help customers address the core problem of corporate and personal data separation without limiting the end-user experience or application adoption. By adding MAM to our existing MDM capabilities, we can help organizations address the growing “Bring Your Own Device” trend by giving employees the ability to use the devices and apps of their choice.

While we will be working through some of the finer points of the addition of Nukona, our objective is to protect and enhance existing customer investments. We will continue to post updates and answer questions on our progression and expanded product portfolio here on the Symantec  Endpoint Management Community Blog.

My understanding is Nukona will provide the personal data and pro data separation, not available with Android currently, with Odyssey solution (SCCM based). That is less critical for iOS because of the integrated MDM feature already separate, as currently Managed MMS 7.1 (Altiris based).

Will surely need additionnal information and roadmap from Symantec all of these :)

Do you plan to integrate part of this for the next 7.5 ITMS + MMS releases this summer ?

Happy to see Symantec engage a lot in mobile management & cloud computing.
