FREMONT, Calif. – November 17th, 2015– Foxit® Corporation, a leading software provider of fast, affordable, and secure PDF solutions, today announced it has integrated Microsoft Intune support into Foxit MobilePDF Business for iOS and Android, an enterprise mobile PDF solution for businesses of all sizes. Microsoft Corp., headquartered in Seattle, Washington, is an industry leader in software innovation and solutions.
Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Solutions, of which Intune is a part, currently have over 20,000 customers, indicating a strong adoption rate. Intune uniquely enables security and management across platforms utilizing Office Mobile apps.
Mobile security is a global concern, and Intune specifically tackles this concern with integrated Rights Management Services (RMS) support and Mobile Application Management (MAM). Application management is an integral ingredient in mobile-based cloud processes, and one that Microsoft aims to take advantage of with their Intune App SDK. Microsoft Intune’s App SDK allows Foxit to directly integrate our applications to enable IT to set management policies.
This, paired with Foxit Software’s commitment to providing reliable PDF solutions to everyone, forms the basis for being a pioneering alliance in “bring your own device” (BYOD) developments and adoption. Foxit MobilePDF Business for iOS and Android, now with Intune support, provides full-service PDF access and control, from PDF viewing, to annotation and shared review, password encryption, Microsoft Rights Management, and more.
Protecting company resources, intellectual property, and customer information is of paramount importance to both Microsoft and Foxit Software. What this means for MobilePDF Business users is increased security and functionality through a cloud-enabled solution. Information Technology departments can now keep corporate information more secure in BYOD environments by requiring stronger security across devices, restricting PDF file-access, restricting screenshots and copy/paste functionality on a per user basis, and remote data deletion when users are removed from organizations. Additionally, firms can manage data access rights and restrict PDF files from being shared or accessed by apps that are not Intune enabled.
“PDF file format is often used to store and share sensitive enterprise data, including business contracts, design specs, financial reports etc. Foxit MobilePDF Business with Microsoft Intune integration protects corporate data while giving user the convenience of working on confidential PDF documents on their mobile devices,” stated Jenny Li, Vice President of Product Management at Foxit Software. All of this is made possible by Microsoft Intune cloud-enabled integration with Foxit MobilePDF Business for iOS and Android.
“People are mobile, devices are intensely personal, and apps are moving to the cloud,” said Brad Anderson, Corporate Vice President, Enterprise Client & Mobility at Microsoft, indicating a great need for mobile solutions in an ever growing marketplace where everything is connected. “Using the Foxit MobilePDF reader, businesses can deliver an empowering work environment for their uses while protecting corporate data.”
