Mobile security solution provider Blue Cedar has announced a strategic partnership with Neptune Software, maker of a market-leading UX (user experience) platform that helps SAP customers reduce the time and cost to design, build, deploy and maintain enterprise apps across desktop, mobile and offline environments.
Joint customers will benefit from Blue Cedar’s patented injectable mobile app security technology and Neptune’s UX platform for rapid mobile app development (RMAD), enabling faster time to market and lower cost for highly secure enterprise mobile apps.
Neptune Software specialises in RMAD and rapid app development (RAD) for SAP environments, which employ low-code programming tools to speed up the process of creating applications.
Customers of Neptune Software use RAD and RMAD to address specific business issues by quickly building and managing customer and internal apps. Blue Cedar’s code-injection technology adds an extra layer of consistent security, without requiring customers to write code to implement the solution.
“This is all about simplicity—in the security, seamless user experience and speed to market that both our companies provide,” said Blue Cedar CEO John Aisien.
“The time-to-market factor is critical. Our injectable security enables customers to roll out mobile app security very quickly. Equally, Neptune’s UX Platform enables rapid mobile app development with very attractive time-to-market results.
“Working together gives our customers the best of both worlds—without sacrificing quality.
“Security is always integral to mobility in any organization,” said Neptune CEO Andreas G. Sulejewski. “The Neptune UX Platform includes robust security measures, and it allows customers to deploy additional security layers defined by their business needs. This synergy with Blue Cedar will open new doors and possibilities to the benefit of our customers.”
Blue Cedar’s solution will help Neptune’s customers comply with GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), the pan-European data-protection law slated to take effect in May 2018. GDPR applies to European Union residents and organisations worldwide collecting or processing EU citizens’ personal data.
It will require mobile enterprises to show that data is gathered with explicit user consent, and that there are suitable data security controls in place around this data.
Neptune Software is a global company dedicated to helping organisations accelerate their enterprise application development projects and the adoption of SAP’s Fiori UX Design—all to increase employee satisfaction, productivity, and business efficiencies.
Neptune Software and its SAP Certified Neptune User Experience Platform provides the fastest, most cost-effective, and secure way to develop and make any SAP application functionality seamlessly available across mobile, desktop and offline—bringing powerful SAP ABAP and Fiori UX capabilities to life today with its low-code, Rapid Application Development Platform (RAD)—so businesses can solve their strategic business and mobile challenges.
