Infragistics Adds New Security Features to SharePlus Apps for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch

Update also includes new social networking capabilities to deliver secure mobile SharePoint access anywhere, anytime

Uxbridge, UK & Cranbury, New Jersey, - June 19, 2012 - Infragistics, the design and user experience (UX) software company and a world leader in user interface (UI) development tools, today introduces enhanced security features and SharePoint social content to SharePlus Enterprise, SharePlus Pro and SharePlus Lite apps for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

With these updates, Infragistics augments already robust security features with the addition of Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) and Claims Based Authentication. ADFS provides SharePlus users with single sign-on access and authenticates using a set of user identity claims. Device data will also be 'wiped' after a specified number of attempts to unsuccessfully authenticate. Integration with Good Technology, a commonly used enterprise mobile security solution, and the ability to lock file formats to corporate sanctioned editing applications, ensure that company intelligence stays private.

"Enterprises understand the productivity gains with arming on-the-go employees with business apps accessed through mobile devices, and we understand that security is a barrier to effectively mobilising SharePoint," said Dean Guida, CEO of Infragistics. "With our laser-like focus on security features and enhancements, SharePlus is the only choice for enterprises who want to keep company intelligence protected and maintain a competitive advantage."

Infragistics further empowers enterprises and on-the-go employees with new SharePoint social networking functionality. SharePlus users can populate their work profiles, communicate progress on projects, areas of expertise, and share best practices with colleagues, whether connected or via the offline synchronisation feature. Meeting documents pinned to specific calendar dates and document 'tagging' provides for easy search and retrieval, while the ability to jump from a SharePoint web view to the SharePlus view with customised SharePoint document links encourages collaboration without restraint.

"People are the greatest sources of information within an organisation and keeping them productive while at a branch office, on the road or in the field taps into an organisation's ability to convert business intelligence into actionable insights. Combined with industry leading security, Infragistics delivers a secure, native mobile SharePoint app for employees on the go," added Guida.

Please see the SharePlus web page for a complete list of features in SharePlus Enterprise, SharePlus Pro and SharePlus Lite. To learn about "Three Barriers to Securely Mobilising SharePoint and How You Can Break Through" read Infragistics latest Whitepaper.
