By  Stephen McBride Published  April 8, 2013

HP Enterprise Services today announced a cloud-based management solution that it claims "delivers secure anytime, anywhere access to applications and data from any mobile device".

HP Enterprise Cloud Services Mobility is aimed at "balancing the responsibilities and requirements of IT with the challenges and expectations of users" said HP. The new solution sits within the company's Converged Cloud portfolio and is designed to allow deployment of tools and services for secure application access, file storage and sharing via multiple mobile platforms and all types of devices, including tablets and mobile phones.

IT organisations are provided the tools to set appropriate security policies and the access controls to protect corporate assets, applications and data. The solution also allows users to download approved enterprise applications from a secure storefront, upload files to for the purposes of collaboration and synchronise files between the HP cloud infrastructure and any mobile device.

Mobile data is encrypted in transit and at rest, with the aim of covering the device as well as the cloud infrastructure. HP also highlighted the capability of configuring cloud file storage that can scale up and down, and the ability of local storage options to address data sovereignty and compliance requirements, as additional benefits.

"Mobility in the workplace continues to be a key focus and concern for IT executives," said Bassem Bouzid, regional vice president & general manager, Enterprise Services HP Middle East, Mediterranean and Africa (MEMA).

"HP Enterprise Cloud Services Mobility leverages HP's strong cloud portfolio by providing clients with a mobility service that provides the highest level of user experience and productivity while minimising risk for IT."

HP Enterprise Cloud Services Mobility integrates technologies from vendors such as Citrix and SAP, which are managed and maintained by HP. The solution is available globally.
