Locog selects Good Technology for mobile device management

The Olympics organisers have selected Good Technology's Good for Enterprise to secure its extensive mobile workforce during London 2012.

The London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Locog) selected the technology for 14,000 personal and sponsor-provided mobile devices.

Locog said that it chose Good for Enterprise to provide its team with secure access to email services, calendar, contacts and applications, while safeguarding against lost or stolen mobile devices. 

Gerry Pennell, Locog's CIO, said: “London 2012 will be the first Games to be impacted by the consumerisation of technology, our team expect IT services that work around them. Good Technology's secure, containerised solution means we don't have to compromise on devices or security – we were impressed that in just four hours it integrated into our wider corporate IT infrastructure and gave us exactly what we wanted.”

Andrew Jacques, general manager EMEA at Good Technology, said: “Being part of such an important event is an honour and something the whole team is proud of. Staging the Games is a huge challenge and we are delighted to be supporting Locog by securing its team of mobile workers.”
