Mobile risk management (MRM) is an emerging category of technologies that empower organizations to identify, mitigate and manage the risks associated with mobile devices in the workplace. MRM helps organizations go beyond traditional mobile device management (MDM) practices, which have primarily relied on risk avoidance or control tactics that limit how devices can be used by employees, to help them exercise the full potential of mobility while protecting corporate data and ensuring regulatory compliance. Using a “risk mitigation” philosophy, MRM solutions enable organizations to support a wide range of mobile devices and embrace the “bring your own device” (BYOD) trend by taking a holistic approach to Enterprise Mobility Management, including MDM, corporate data security, mobile application management (MAM), malware prevention, IT compliance reporting and more.

Fixmo Enterprise Mobility Platform (Fixmo EMP) provides a suite of defense-grade mobile security and device management services for enabling protected and compliant mobile computing in the workplace. Fixmo EMP is designed to help organizations identify, mitigate and manage the risks associated with deploying both corporate-liable and personal-liable (“bring your own device”) mobile devices.
Fixmo Sentinel provides a powerful integrity verification, compliance monitoring and enterprise reporting suite that helps organizations ensure their mobile devices and infrastructure start, and remain, in a known trusted state. By continuously monitoring device configurations and system integrity, Fixmo Sentinel can help organizations understand what their risk posture is at any given time and take action when necessary to ensure regulatory compliance. It also provides risk intelligence tools including analytics, alerting and enterprise reporting that ensures organizations have an audit trail of the integrity and compliance posture of their mobility environment.
Fixmo SafeZone provides a 256-bit AES encrypted “secure container” for iOS and Android devices that provides advanced encryption and access control for data in-transit and data at-rest including Email, PIM, documents, intranet-based web content and more. Organizations can also deploy custom applications into Fixmo SafeZone using the Fixmo SafeGuard SDK to leverage the same level of protection for in-house developed apps as well as third party apps. Fixmo SafeZone ensures that private corporate data remains protected within a secure and verified container on both personal-liable and corporate-liable devices, helping organizations mitigate the risk of data loss and maintain compliance.
Fixmo SharePlace is the first defense-grade data leakage prevention (DLP) solution enabling secure and compliant access to Microsoft SharePoint from Apple iOS and Android devices. It combines end-to-end FIPS 140-2 data encryption, on-device data containerization, multi-factor user authentication, mobile-specific access permissions and geo-location policy controls into a defense-grade mobile DLP solution that enables organizations to embrace SharePoint on mobile devices without compromising security, integrity or compliance. It provides mobile-specific access control policies that can prevent specific documents from being downloaded to mobile devices. Mobile access permissions can be restricted based on the sensitivity of the information, the user profile, or the current location of the device – all without changing the user’s permissions for desktop-based access.
Fixmo SafeLock is a comprehensive device (MDM) and application management (MAM) tool that allows administrators to centralize the management of iOS, BlackBerry, and Android devices. With Fixmo Safelock, IT can inventory and track device-related information, provision or white/blacklist applications, enable remote diagnostics, and apply advanced policies that control many device hardware and software capabilities, including the use of camera, Bluetooth, wifi, screen capture, etc. It will work stand-alone or integrate with other MDM / ITSM systems.
Fixmo AppZone is an app management platform that simplifies mobile app deployment through a fully customizable enterprise app store. It helps you accelerate the app development lifecycle with tools to deploy to testers, control versions and analyze an array of crash logs and performance metrics.
The individual Fixmo EMP services can work independently or as a federated solution for comprehensive mobile security and management enabling organizations to mitigate and manage different types of risks associated with BlackBerry, iOS and Android device deployments and report on their compliance.
Through the National Security Agency (NSA) Technology Transfer Program (TTP), Fixmo has commercialized and further advanced powerful MRM technologies initially developed by the U.S. Government’s National Security Agency. Through a Co-operative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the NSA/CSS (Central Security Service), Fixmo is actively engaged in various projects centered around mobile enterprise device management, mobile enterprise systems management, and mobile enterprise device security.
A growing number of organizations are embracing the BYOD trend, which enables employees to bring personal-liable mobile devices into the enterprise or government workplace. Allowing employees to bring consumer-grade mobile devices into the enterprise can offer a number of benefits and cost savings but can also introduce significant risk and concerns over data protection and regulatory compliance. Fixmo SafeZone is designed to help organizations manage the risk associated with the BYOD approach by ensuring corporate data is continuously protected on personal-liable devices within a separate contained environment that is fully encrypted, access-controlled and monitored for integrity verification. Fixmo SafeZone provides a secure container for iOS and Android devices, providing 256-bit AES encryption for data in-transit and data at-rest including email, PIM, documents, intranet-based web content and more. Organizations can also deploy custom applications using the Fixmo SafeGuard SDK to leverage the same level of protection for in-house developed apps as well as third party apps. Fixmo SafeZone enables employees to securely access their critical business content on their personal-liable devices without impacting the personal user experience of the device. And when an employee exits an organization, IT administrators can easily wipe the Fixmo SafeZone container along with all of the corporate data applications contained within in.
Through the National Security Agency Technology Transfer Program (TTP), Fixmo has driven the transition of AutoBerry, an NSA-designed solution for automating mobile device compliance auditing, from a government off-the-shelf (GOTS) product to a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) product called Fixmo Sentinel Desktop.
