Learn What Application Containerization is and the Benefits of Using It

IT departments everywhere are working hard to keep corporate data safe and secure, which is becoming more difficult with BYOD practices. A secure container is one way to do that, but most people don’t know what they are, how to use them and when it’s appropriate to use them. At Comodo, we understand your ultimate goal is to allow employees to work from their personal devices, but also allow IT departments to separate play from work. Application containerization is a way to do that.

What It Does

A special area of the user’s mobile device is encrypted and authenticated and can be used to shield vital corporate information from the personal information already on the device. It is typically a third-party mobile app that can separate and secure some of the device storage to keep it safer and more secure.

The goal of application containerization is to keep the application away from everything else to prevent intruders, malware, other applications and system resources from interacting with it and the sensitive information it contains.

Already Built In

While most devices offer device security features like this one, their effectiveness can vary. Application containerization is available on:

  • iOS
  • Android
  • BlackBerry
  • Windows Phone
  • Toggle
  • Knox

Our product can be used alongside the built-in options to ensure safety and security of your most important sensitive data.

When to Use Them

Anytime applications and mobile devices are in use that you cannot completely control, you should use a secure container. Just as the enterprise consumerization is increasing, so is the data security risks and malware from hackers. Our product will help you disable certain apps or functions within apps, as well as isolate apps. You’ll also be able to wipe information inside the container without affecting personal data.
