SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Framehawk, Inc., an innovative start-up providing an application virtualization platform for mobile environments, today announced that it has become a technology partner in the AirWatch Marketplace.
Framehawk enables enterprises to mobilize their corporate applications without sacrificing performance or user experience, providing IT with the policy controls it needs to secure and manage corporate data for virtualized applications. By integrating with the AirWatch platform, Framehawk can apply relevant policies on mobile devices.
Framehawk's platform means existing applications of all types, including "thick" Windows client/server applications and web applications using any technology, can be quickly and easily mobilized without requirements for redevelopment or any changes to the applications. The applications are run in a secure container that can be deployed in the public cloud, private cloud or in a virtual appliance in an organization's data center.
Framehawk's app automatically supports many user experience enhancements to support touch and gestures without putting any data on the mobile device itself. The architecture also enables fast, secure delivery of new applications, such as the latest HTML5 web apps, without browser compatibility issues or requiring VPN to be deployed on the device.
"We are excited about our new partnership with AirWatch," said Peter Badger, co-founder and CEO of Framehawk. "With BYOD and the dramatic increase in mobile use within the enterprise, IT needs to minimize the risk of data leakage across their entire portfolio of applications. The combination of Framehawk and AirWatch allows just that."
"AirWatch customers continue to look for ways to enable increased productivity for their workforce and improve business processes through mobility," said Kevin Keith, director of business development, AirWatch. "AirWatch's advanced application management secures corporate content in mobile applications and our partnership with Framehawk's application virtualization platform will allow customers to mobilize existing enterprise applications based on their mobility strategy."
Framehawk is currently participating in the AirWatch Connect Atlanta 2013 in the Mobility Expo, Sept. 9-12.
AirWatch is the world's largest mobile security and enterprise mobility management provider with more than 8,000 customers and more than 1,400 global associates. The largest customer base, combined with the largest research and development team in the industry, allows AirWatch to provide the broadest functionality at the lowest cost. The AirWatch platform, featuring industry-leading mobile device management and application management, also incorporates the most secure content management solution, Secure Content Locker™. These solutions can be used stand-alone for unique BYOD requirements or as a comprehensive, highly scalable enterprise-grade mobility platform.
Framehawk provides a software platform that enables secure, high-performance application delivery to mobile devices. With Framehawk, organizations can immediately use corporate- or employee-owned iPads and other tablets without risking data leakage or compromising user experience.
To enable application mobilization, Framehawk uses a patented fast, secure, mobile-optimized protocol to communicate between applications and tablets, and an architecture that sends only pixels to the device, leaving the heavy-lifting processing behind the customer's firewall or in the cloud.
Framehawk's platform means existing applications of all types, including "thick" Windows applications, can be quickly and easily mobilized. Framehawk's secure mobile client supports touch and gestures without putting data on the tablet. The architecture also enables fast, secure delivery of new applications, including the latest HTML5 Web apps, with no browser incompatibility issues and without requiring secure containers or VPN to be deployed on the mobile device.
Framehawk was founded in 2008 and is headquartered in San Francisco, California. For more information on the company's application mobilization solution, go to www.framehawk.com or follow @Framehawk on Twitter.
