Blue Cedar Enforce Launches on the Microsoft Azure Cloud Platform; Available through the VAR Channel

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 13, 2017 – Blue Cedar today introduced Enforce, a mobile app security solution that is tailor-made for the cloud. Blue Cedar Enforce enables customers to secure existing mobile apps automatically using in-app embedded controls that enforce a broad range of security policies, including those governing mobile access, data encryption, and attestation, among others. Additionally, users can now enjoy the benefits of greater modularity and the nimbleness of cloud-native architecture. The service will launch Dec. 13, initially on the Microsoft Azure Cloud.

“Corporate workloads are moving en masse to the cloud and—true to our philosophy of security following the app everywhere it is used and connected—we are now offering our core functionality as a native cloud service,” said Blue Cedar CEO John Aisien. “We’re very excited about this release, which serves as the foundation for deeper integration between Blue Cedar and the Microsoft cloud stack over time.”

Enforce comprises a subset of the functionality in Blue Cedar’s flagship Enterprise solution. Building upon Blue Cedar’s industry-leading code injection technology, the new cloud-based Enforce solution includes data-at-rest encryption, local app authentication, and integrity verification to ensure that its in-app security controls are not modified after deployment. The more modularized client also enables incremental Blue Cedar cloud services, such as dynamic policies, encryption key management, and codeless custom screen modification and does not require an SDK. “Think of Enforce as the iPod Nano of mobile app security solutions—with all the power of our incumbent solution but with more flexibility, agility, and elasticity,” said Aisien.

Healthcare is one of many industries where Enforce will be especially useful. The rapid proliferation of digital health mobile and IoT apps is critical to patient telehealth service delivery, management of medical devices for chronic conditions, managing the efficacy of patient clinical trials, personal health management, and numerous other use cases that improve healthcare outcomes and efficiency. Healthcare organizations are acutely aware of the risks that insecure apps can pose to patient and clinical data. 

“We look forward to working with Blue Cedar to deliver a unique service to Microsoft’s public cloud customers, especially in the healthcare space,” said Hector Rodriguez, Microsoft’s Worldwide Health CISO. “Enforce can play a key role in providing secure use of the processing power and data storage capacity of modern smartphones and tablets—which is essential to improving healthcare outcomes and aligns with Microsoft’s healthcare digital transformation pillars.”

The cloud-based Enforce solution will be sold primarily through value-added resellers (VARs). Blue Cedar plans to move more functionality to the cloud, in keeping with the larger industry trend that has seen everything from application, platform, and data services workloads migrate to public clouds. The company’s current offering, Blue Cedar Enterprise, will continue to be available through the company’s direct sales organization. Visit this page for more information about Enforce.

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Blue Cedar today announced support for Apple’s new Face ID—the revolutionary facial recognition technology that allows iPhone X users to unlock their phones with a quick glance at the screen. Blue Cedar’s innovative authentication code enables customers to use Face ID to securely log into a Blue Cedar-protected app or group of apps on iPhone X—including many popular apps that pre-date the iPhone X. This new capability extends an even greater level of convenience than Blue Cedar’s current biometric technology, which helps users securely access apps via fingerprint per the Touch ID technology introduced with Apple’s iPhone 6.

“We’re excited to offer the innovative capability of integrating Face ID authentication into any app secured by Blue Cedar’s technology, without the need for any code changes by developers,” said Kevin Fox, co-founder and CTO at Blue Cedar. “Our configurable Local App Authentication policy now allows any enterprise mobile app to be unlocked with the same ease and convenience that iPhone X owners use to access their phones. Blue Cedar’s technology allows us to intercept and encrypt network and data-at-rest operations, and when coupled with Face ID, is completely transparent to the user. We are proud to deliver such a critical feature that ultimately offers zero compromise between security and ease-of-use.”


Magic Under the Hood

While the user experience itself is seamless, there is nothing simple about the technological innovation under the hood to achieve this essential security feat. Just as Blue Cedar offered fingerprint access to apps via the APIs (application programming interfaces) in Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS, the company now also offers Face ID support via those APIs for any app on supported hardware through its revolutionary code injection technology.

Face ID uses a variety of sophisticated technologies, including facial mapping that analyzes more than 30,000 points on the user’s face, to create a detailed depth map that enables the iPhone to recognize the user even with glasses, facial hair, or a hat. Neural network technology safeguards against spoofing by masks or other techniques, and infrared sensors ensure that Face ID works in the dark. Blue Cedar customers benefit from these same technologies in accessing their protected apps.

Additionally, Blue Cedar’s new authentication code can be injected into older apps that were built before Face ID technology became available, allowing users to log into these apps with just their face and without requiring developers to go back to update the apps.
