SAP Extends SAP Mobile Secure Portfolio with Cloud-Based Mobile Application Management

SAP SE has expanded the SAP Mobile Secure portfolio with the addition of mobile application management, a secure enterprise app store that allows companies to push their mobile apps into the hands of employees, business partners and consumers. The Mobile Place feature delivers apps, services and content to both managed and unmanaged mobile devices. For managed users, it identifies when their device is out of compliance and directs them to download the appropriate mobile device management (MDM) solution, regardless of the MDM vendor, before they are able to install any apps.

“With the expansion of the SAP Mobile Secure portfolio on both managed and unmanaged devices, we are delivering the best mobile experience for our customers for consuming enterprise apps,” said Senthil Krishnapillai, vice president, SAP Mobile Secure. “For example, a large beverage company will use mobile place to make their mobile apps easily accessible to distributors, and a healthcare provider can provide a single mobile app to authorized patients. The discovery features of mobile place help ensure any corporate developed or licensed apps can be easily configured.”

Mobile Place provides a secure, multi-channel central hub that offers self-service capabilities to serve employees, business partners and consumers while reducing IT support costs, to bring the management of content, apps and devices together in a seamless workflow for IT admins, application developers and end users.

The Mobile Place feature is included at no additional cost with the purchase of SAP Mobile Secure portfolio, and companies can sign up for a free 30-day trial of SAP Mobile Secure at,  For more information, go here.
