Webalo Partners with Symantec to Protect Critical Enterprise Applications
and Data Delivered in Minutes to Mobile Devices
Webalo’s self-service platform to be included in the Symantec Sealed Program
which provides security and management for enterprise mobility apps
LOS ANGELES -- May 07, 2013
Webalo, Inc., today announced a partnership with Symantec Corp. to include
Webalo’s cloud-based, self-service enterprise mobility platform in the
Symantec Sealed Program, which assures enterprise customers of Symantec App
Center that the apps they buy are protected in a comprehensive data and mobile
application security workspace providing enterprise-class security,
authentication, encryption, and content controls.
Webalo’s technology, which uses a step-by-step, point-and-click configuration
process to create and deploy enterprise-to-mobile capabilities in minutes,
provides its own internal security, but as part of the Symantec Sealed
Program, Webalo will integrate Symantec’s security and management features,
such as encryption, authentication, data loss prevention policies, app
distribution and revocation, into its platform. As a Symantec Sealed partner,
Webalo’s technology is integrated and tested to work with Symantec App Center,
providing a seamless and secure centralized mobile workforce productivity
management console as part of the Symantec Mobile Management Suite.
As a Symantec Sealed app, Webalo will be visible to enterprise customers that
are leveraging the Symantec App Center. Customers will then be able to use a
single enterprise mobility platform for securing and managing apps, devices
and content with confidence on both iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.
Webalo will distribute the “Symantec Sealed” version of its product on
third-party platforms such as Apple’s App Store and Google Play.
“The integration of Webalo’s enterprise mobility platform with Symantec’s App
Center will give corporate IT several things – the security they must have
together with the speed and simplicity they didn’t realize was possible for
creating bi-directional, interactive mobile access to the enterprise,” said
Peter Price, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Webalo. “This new
channel will provide Symantec customers with an approach to enterprise
mobility that’s 100 times faster and a fraction of the cost of traditional
mobile application development.”
“The Symantec Sealed Program allows our partners to include Symantec’s
enterprise grade protection within their apps, giving IT organizations
integrated and seamless controls over their data without compromising their
user’s experience on their mobile devices,” said Chandra Rangan, Senior
Director of Product Marketing, Enterprise Mobility Group, Symantec. "With
Webalo as part of the Symantec Sealed Program, our customers will have access
to an innovative approach to enterprise mobility to ensure a productive and
agile mobile workforce. Symantec customers will be able to easily deploy
Webalo, which has been integrated and pre-tested to work within their secure
workspace with the Symantec Mobile Management Suite.”

Webalo is enterprise mobility the way it’s meant to be – easy, fast, and
affordable. It can be configured in minutes to deliver secure, interactive,
bi-directional, transactional mobile access to the enterprise applications,
data, and real-time operational intelligence employees rely on to do their
jobs – all for pennies an app. It’s 100x faster than traditional mobile
application development, a fraction of the cost, simple enough for anyone to
master, and powerful enough to let users take action directly from their
smartphones and tablets. Webalo reduces the burden on IT, lowers overhead (by
eliminating development software, coding, consultants, and technologies for
managing and distributing mobile apps), extends the value of enterprise
applications, and leverages the full computing power of smartphones and
tablets. Founded in 2000, Los Angeles-based Webalo is privately held.
