Financial conduct regulator mobilises with Good

FMA deploys vendor’s MDM and mobility platform

The Financial Markets Authority (FMA) has deployed Good Technology’s mobile device management (MDM) solution, Good for Enterprise, and the Good Dynamics Secure Mobility platform to mobilise both its business processes and workforce.

The FMA is an independent Crown entity established in 2011 to facilitate the development of fair, efficient, and transparent financial markets in NZ. It is responsible for the conduct and disclosure regulation of financial markets’ participants.

According to FMA head of finance and business operations, Dave Brady, the decision to implement Good solutions is consistent with FMA’s IT strategy to provide employees with the right tools to operate effectively both in and out of the office.

“Good’s use in government agencies and departments both within NZ and around the world gave us the confidence that we were looking for in a secure mobility solution,” Brady said.

FMA currently employs 110 mobile-enabled personnel using a mix of Android (4.2 or later) and iOS (6 or later) smartphones and tablets.

As a result, Good Dynamics will be used to fully mobilise FMA’s workflow to enable employees to securely record information on a mobile device.

The FMA will also look into using Good’s data container to secure its Microsoft Dynamics CRM mobile application.

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
