Good Technology Partners With Westcon Solutions to Bring Secure Mobility to Philippine Market


Good Technology, the leader in secure mobility, today marked its entry into the Philippines market, following the signing of an Asia-wide master distributor agreement with Westcon Solutions, part of the Westcon Group, Inc. Apart from the Philippines, Westcon Solutions will distribute Good Technology’s solutions in other key Asian markets such as China (including Hong Kong), Taiwan and South East Asia.


Westcon Group is a value-added distributor of category-leading unified communications, network infrastructure, data center and security solutions with a global network of specialty resellers. Westcon works with leading vendors to provide a range of innovative and market leading solutions to channel partners, alongside extensive value-added services - from marketing assistance to expert technical support.
Good Technology transforms enterprises by mobilizing employees through secure, collaborative workflows. It empowers IT to protect and manage mobile applications, devices and enterprise data. Good’s Secure Collaboration solutions include Good’s applications for email, Personal Information Manager (PIM), browser, file sharing, instant messaging, as well as a broad ecosystem of third party applications. Good’s Enterprise Mobility Management Platform allows enterprises and ISVs to build, manage, analyze and secure mobile applications.


David Cockerham, APAC Channel Director at Good Technology, commented: “We are thrilled to take our collaboration with Westcon forward, and our entrance into the Philippine market would not have been possible without such a supportive partner. Philippines has enormous growth potential and we’re observing a strong trend where more businesses are adopting a mobile approach to further empower their workforce”.

Anthony Tian, Regional Director at Good Technology APAC, commented: “Organizations within the public and private sector in the Asia Pacific region, including the Philippines, are increasingly looking for solutions to support the consumerization of IT, including managing mobile data across numerous business needs such as Secure Email, MDM and Secure Applications. This demand is being driven not only from C-suite executives, but across the board from employees who want to stay productive, whilst bringing together their business and personal mobile experiences”.

Richard Salazar, Sales Manager at Westcon added, “Good Technology is the leader in secure mobility, and delivers high quality solutions to help organizations manage sensitive mobile information in transit, over the air or at rest on a device. In the cloud or via applications, Good Technology really is the only viable option currently available to comprehensively secure iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices. As mobility increasingly becomes a reality for many IT departments in Asia, a secure mobile platform is critical to ensure that sensitive business data is not compromised. With Good Technology, Westcon Solutions is well positioned to service the needs of government and enterprise customers in the Philippines.”

Good Technology already provides more than 5,000 customers worldwide with government grade security, that includes a FIPS 140-2-validated cryptographic module that utilizes AES-192 encryption for both data-at-rest as well as data-in-transit. In March this year, the Australian Government’s Defence Signals Directorate (DSD) endorsed Good for Enterprise to secure iOS devices up to and including ‘Protected’ level.

Customers in the Asia Pacific region include the likes of Bangkok Bank, Bank of New Zealand, Bank of Queensland, Bupa, Chio Lim Stone Forest, Corrs Chambers Westgarth and the Australian Government Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population & Communities.
