By Robert Vamosi | 4/11/13 10:27 PM

My guest today is Matthew Barnhart, senior product manager at Mocana. He's been working on Mobile App Protection or MAP. Earlier this week Mocana announced a new version, version 2.4.2. As Matthew will explain, MAP allows enterprises to wrap or shield individual apps with secure policies without the IT staff having access to the binary. Matthew describes the app wrapping process more and the features that have been added in this new release.

Robert Vamosi: Why don't you start by giving us an elevator pitch for the MAP product from Mocana?

Matthew Barnhart: Sure. Mobile app protection or MAP is a technology that allows you to take any app, one that you've developed in house, one that perhaps has been customized for you by an outside entity, and to add to it the security and usage policies you want, and it just takes seconds. What's great about it is that you don't have to have any expertise in implementing security, for example FIPS 140 2 level one grade security, and neither does your vendor or your consultants or anyone else. In a matter of seconds you can choose the whole set of fine grained security policies that you want. Click "apply," and it will apply it to your iOS or your Android app.
