The Good Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) Suite by Good Technology has received exciting additions following a partnership with Microsoft.

Good Technology has released the industry’s first secure enterprise productivity solution for the Windows 8.1 platform which enables IT to increase productivity and security on tablets.

The new addition makes the EMM Suites ideal for businesses and companies who want to establish multiple mobility models such as bring your own device (BYOD) and corporate owned personally enabled (COPE), as well as kiosk solutions.

This isn’t the only way Good Technology is making mobility models more accessible. On October 6th they released an announcement that launched Good Work and Good Secure Mobile Productivity Suite.
