Joint panel highlights need for enhanced policy management capabilities to enable higher levels of security in app development and distribution

SAN FRANCISCO - RED HAT SUMMIT 2016 – JUNE 21, 2016 – Apperian® Inc., the mobile application management (MAM®) and security company, today announced that Caleb Mills, vice president of Operations, plans to speak at Red Hat Summit 2016, the industry’s premier open source technology event, alongside Red Hat and client organization, Electronic Arts (EA), a leading global interactive software company. They plan to present a collaborative solution developed with EA that provides enhanced mobile app lifecycle management to support the continuous development and greater security for deploying apps using Apperian and Red Hat technologies. Together, Red Hat and Apperian enable apps on mobile devices to more securely access data from traditional software applications with enhanced policy management capabilities. Additionally, the integrated solution enables simple as well as complex mobile security policies to be created and applied at the individual app level, without requiring management of the devices directly. Mobile apps can be distributed to an unlimited number of users more securely through a private-branded enterprise app store. These capabilities help address major pain points for the enterprise by providing an app development platform with more secure back-end integration and broad app distribution with integrated security features, policy governance and usage analytics. “Our top priority is to more securely distribute mobile apps to 100 percent of users, both inside and outside of an organization,” said Caleb Mills, vice president of Operations at Apperian. “Many enterprises face challenges in building a continuous volume of cross-platform apps and getting them in the hands of authorized users in a secure way. They’re also looking to become more agile with development. By integrating app development and mobile app management on a single platform, Apperian and Red Hat are tackling these challenges to help provide better apps, higher levels of mobile security, and greater reach of those apps for companies in all industries.” Apperian and Red Hat executives are scheduled to be joined by Bill Bendrot, senior manager, Services and Enterprise Mobile Development at Electronic Arts, on the Red Hat Summit panel as they discuss the use of a Mobile Application Platform (MAP) as an integration platform to enrich internal systems with enterprise mobility management platforms like MAM. As the Electronic Arts IT department continues its growth in the mobile space, it seeks a way to integrate its mobile apps and existing management systems with agile development approaches based on modern technology stacks. In addition to highlighting the integration of MAP and MAM platforms, this session will explore:
  • The history of Electronic Arts IT department’s expansion into the mobile space
  • Factors behind choosing a Node.js tech stack
  • Benefits of microservices throughout the integration process
  • The realities of development and deployment operations in a rapid development environment
  • Points to consider when evaluating service providers
  • An overview of their final technology stack and resulting successes
