Milja Gillespie is the Director of Product Marketing for SAP Mobile Security. I met her on the show floor at TechEd where she was explaining mobile security to a crowd of SAPers eager to try everything out on the iPads provided for them. She agreed to take a break and talk to me about SAP’s latest announcements in the world of mobile security and what they mean.

Tell me about the big mobile announcements.

What we actually announced this morning [10/22/13] were some pretty significant enhancements to the SAP Mobile portfolio. So, we have three key products as a part of this portfolio around managing and securing devices, apps, and content. With each of these three technologies we’ve done significant enhancements that we just announced. The first one is around securing devices. We just announced support for – this is the SAP Afaria product – Samsung Knox. This is something a lot of customers have been asking for. Knox is a container-based dual persona-type device and we can now manage about one hundred and eighty features within that capability and support for iOS 7 and all their new MDM capabilities that Apple released September 10th.
