London, UK – 12 February 2013 – The United Kingdom’s specialist aviation regulator, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has selected Good Technology™, the leader in secure enterprise mobility, to help increase staff productivity, efficiency and collaboration by enabling mobile workers to access emails, contacts and calendars securely on the go.
Good for Enterprise™ was chosen following CAA’s months-long review of its strategy for its growing mobile workforce, which included a comprehensive review of mobile working practices.
“Organisations like the CAA need staff to access information quickly and securely. This means giving remote workers easy access to the right information, whilst keeping it secure,” said Andrew Jacques, General Manager of International Business at Good Technology. “After reviewing Good for Enterprise and testing it in demanding conditions, the CAA is confident in our ability to support its far-reaching mobile working strategy.”
The CAA completed a successful pilot of Good for Enterprise across a number of devices and is now moving into full production. Starting immediately, staff will use either personally-owned or corporate-owned Android smartphones, iPads and iPhones with Good for Enterprise installed.
“At the start of this process, our aim was to satisfy employees' demand for use of newer devices by moving away from Blackberry, reduce our overall cost of ownership and increase functionality while not compromising security,” according to Darryl Sampson, CAA’s Head of Infrastructure. “The feedback on the Good Solution, from the group taking part in the pilot, has been very positive, particularly around how Good for Enterprise can work seamlessly across different operating systems and devices.”
Now one-third of its 1,000 strong workforce are able to work remotely; mobile workers including surveyors, inspectors and examiners require fast, efficient and secure access to corporate email. The CAA has offices at Gatwick Airport, Holborn in London and six additional locations throughout the United Kingdom.
Good for Enterprise provides companies with the following benefits:
- Streamlined management and support for a broader range of corporate and employee-owned mobile devices
- A simplified end-user experience
- Flexibility for employees to seamlessly integrate personal and work priorities
- Corporate data protection with rigorous mobile enterprise security across multiple platforms
