Plus for partners as AVG Technologies hands mobility control back to enterprise

“Mass ownership of personal mobile devices, the adoption of popular consumer cloud services and the impact of the Internet of Things have been the catalysts for true ‘business without walls’."

Online security firm AVG Technologies has announced the immediate availability of AVG Business Secure Sign-On (SSO), designed to hand the control of mobile devices back to IT providers and business owners.

Underpinned by technology from identity management provider, Centrify, AVG Business SSO works to provide AVG partners and business owners with a way to control company data on employees’ mobile devices and cloud applications.

AVG Business SSO allows AVG partners to offer help to small business customers who are struggling with the issues of bring your own device (BYOD) and password management.

“Mass ownership of personal mobile devices, the adoption of popular consumer cloud services like Skype and Dropbox for business purposes and the impact of the Internet of Things have been the catalysts for true ‘business without walls’," says Mike Foreman, General Manager, AVG Business.

“Business in a fully connected environment puts smaller firms at risk of data breaches.

"AVG Business SSO for the first time makes it simple for businesses without big budgets or in-house IT staff to keep company confidential data safe, private and within their control, even while it is shared with employee-owned mobile devices and externally hosted cloud services."

According to Foreman, Secure Sign-On capability is the "most significant" addition to the AVG Business portfolio.

Also AVG Business CloudCare features several updates including a new customer drop-down box that allows IT providers to adjust the settings of one or all their customers with a single click, a central, holistic view of sales alerts, support for HTML-5, and simpler access to customised reporting.

“In partnership with Centrify, AVG’s Secure Sign-On supports the most popular operating systems including Windows, Mac, iOS and Android in recognition of the multi-device world that small businesses have embraced today,” adds Shreyas Sadalgi, SVP of Business Development, Centrify.

“Our easy-to-use cloud-based authentication and mobile device management service, saves businesses time logging in and out of applications, cuts down on ‘shadow-IT’ and ensures regulatory compliance."
