Verivo Adds Support for Windows Phone 8, Windows RT, and Windows 8 Devices in Latest Release of Akula Platform

Release offers developers wider device support and more secure and manageable cross-platform enterprise app capabilities

WALTHAM, Mass., November 14, 2013 – Verivo Software, the enterprise mobility company, today announced the release of Verivo Akula 1.5. Following on their commitment to work with and listen to the needs of the enterprise, today’s release is focused on expanding support to a wider range of mobile devices, increasing the level of data security associated with apps built on Akula, and enhancing the control that app owners have over policy and property management after deployment.

With this new release, businesses are granted the out-of-the-box ability to build, secure and control enterprise-grade apps designed to run on Windows-based mobile phones, tablets and computers. Windows 8 support joins already supported iOS and Android, as well as Akula’s support for HTML5 and hybrid app development. Akula Version 1.5 also delivers full on-device encryption for apps built using Akula Cordova for iOS and Android, as well as an enhanced caching service, a ready-to-use sync and login rules, and other features and certifications.

“We see, first hand, the diversity of devices being used within the enterprise,” said Marc Rosenbaum, director of product marketing, Verivo Software. “This release is focused on enabling true cross-device app support through the delivery of a platform that powers apps that run on all of today’s leading devices.”

The release of Akula 1.5 empowers companies to deliver custom, native and hybrid apps for the enterprise with access to many new features including:

Support for Windows Phone 8, Windows RT and Windows 8 on Cordova, which strengthens the cross-platform reach of Apache Cordova/PhoneGap -based Akula apps beyond the previously supported Android and iOS platforms.

Encryption for Cordova iOS / Android app data is available and at parity with the native iOS and Android Akula SDKs.

Sync and Login rules. All Akula client SDKs (native iOS, native Android, JavaScript-only, Cordova iOS, Cordova Android, Cordova Windows RT, Cordova Windows Phone 8) implement a client side rules engine that enforces rules configured on the server.

…and many more features and enhancements.
