CRANBURY, N.J., Oct. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Infragistics, a worldwide leader in developer tools and mobile business solutions, today announced that it is part of the MobileIron AppConnect ecosystem. Infragistics SharePlus integrated with MobileIron AppConnect ensures employees can securely deploy, connect and manage their mobile SharePoint solutions, while IT has the policy controls it needs to secure and manage corporate data.

MobileIron, the leader in security and management for mobile apps, documents, and devices, provides its AppConnect technology to third party mobile app developers. With MobileIron AppConnect apps, companies can give their employees the best third-party application experiences with apps that have been enabled with auto-configuration, data containerization, and secure tunneling to protect corporate data.

Using MobileIron's Enterprise App Storefront users can download SharePlus without ever having to enter their personal payment information. With AppConnect data transmitted through SharePlus can be protected using MobileIron's authentication, authorization and data loss prevention policies in order to prevent confidential data from being compromised. With MobileIron's AppTunnel, users can protect data in transit, authenticate the user/application/device, and control access to SharePoint resources using MobileIron.

"Integrating our SharePlus software with the security features of MobileIron has enabled our SharePlus users to use the product without fear of their data being compromised or mishandled," said Dean Guida, CEO of Infragistics.
