The Financial Markets Authority (FMA) has deployed Good Technology's mobile device management (MDM) solution, Good for Enterprise, and the Good Dynamics Secure Mobility platform to mobilise both its business processes and workforce.
The FMA is an independent Crown entity established in 2011 to facilitate the development of fair, efficient, and transparent financial markets in NZ. It is responsible for the conduct and disclosure regulation of financial markets' participants.
According to FMA head of finance and business operations, Dave Brady, the decision to implement Good solutions is consistent with FMA's IT strategy to provide employees with the right tools to operate effectively both in and out of the office.
"Good's use in government agencies and departments both within NZ and around the world gave us the confidence that we were looking for in a secure mobility solution," Brady said.
FMA currently employs 110 mobile-enabled personnel using a mix of Android (4.2 or later) and iOS (6 or later) smartphones and tablets.
As a result, Good Dynamics will be used to fully mobilise FMA's workflow to enable employees to securely record information on a mobile device.
The FMA will also look into using Good's data container to secure its Microsoft Dynamics CRM mobile application.
