• Completes integration of combined organization and establishes  expanded product vision and deliverables
• Delivers Good Works–a new, comprehensive set of products targeting enterprises, government and the consumer markets

CTIA Wireless 2009, Las Vegas, NV, April 1, 2009--Good Technology, a leading global provider of mobility solutions formerly doing business as VISTO™, announced today that following VISTO’s recent acquisition of Good Technology (February 24 2009), the Company has successfully completed its integrated product plans and future deliverables, its organizational structure and management team, all culminating in the creation of a new, larger and broader market leader. The Company today also debuts Good Works™, Good’s new initiative to deliver on the possibilities of mobility in the business, government and consumer market segments.

“The new Good Technology will stand for innovation, quality, security and openness and is backed by an experienced global organization, passionate about our contributions to the industry and to individuals communicating, collaborating and sharing, securely on the device of their choice.  We are the world’s leading alternative to closed, single dimensional mobility solutions and will build on the past achievements and milestones of both organizations in a new and unified platform that will provide our partners and customers with choice and flexibility on the most proven set of mobility tools and applications available anywhere in the world,” said Brian A. Bogosian, chairman, president and CEO of Good Technology. “Good Works will deliver and the world will work better.”

Good Works
Good Works opens new possibilities for enterprises, government, and individuals to maximize their business and personal productivity by securely and easily giving them instant mobile access to the data, applications, and services they use every day on their device of choice.

Good Works products available from Good Technology starting today include:

Good for Enterprise
Good for Enterprise™ provides business users with securely managed mobile access to messaging and the other enterprise applications and data they need to maximize their productivity.  For IT administrators, Good for Enterprise™ provides the tools they need to securely manage and control all of their mobile devices and applications, no matter what device their end users choose.

Good for Enterprise is based on three components:

• Good Mobile Messaging™
• Good Mobile Access™
• Good Mobile Control™

Deployed by market leaders including a large percentage of the Fortune 50, Good for Enterprise is the choice for enterprises to maximize the business and personal productivity of their employees, while maintaining security and control over an increasingly diverse range of mobile applications and devices.

“Specialized is in the business of bicycle racing and Good makes our business go faster,” said Ray Dzek, Network Operations Manager, Specialized Bicycles.  “Just like the sport we live and breathe, our business is every bit as competitive.  We often go head-to-head with larger, more established companies who would like to see us at the back of the pack.  Good gives us the edge we need to compete and win.”

Good for Government
Good for Government™ provides government agencies the same benefits as Good for Enterprise, but with the added security of S/MIME messaging and Common Access Card support.  

Deployed by government agencies including the Government of the District of Columbia, Cleveland Metropolitan School District, the Office of the Oregon State Treasurer and with U.S. Army Authority to Operate (ATO) certification, Good for Government™ is the choice for local, state and federal government agencies.  

Good for You
Good for You™ provides individuals with instant, easy-to-use, mobile access to their personal messaging, address book, calendaring, social networking, and media sharing applications and services.

• Good Mobile Mail™
• Good Mobile Social Networking™
• Good Mobile Portal™
• Good Mobile Exchange Access™

For mobile operators, device makers, and other service provider partners, Good for You is available as a hosted, customizable and brandable solution that can be tightly integrated with the partner’s existing services and/or hardware solutions to deliver truly differentiated and value add user experiences and offerings.

Says Anders Wasterlid, Good’s CTO, “There is an enormous amount of complex technology underlying Good Works. Our engineering goal is to demonstrate an elegant user interface and simplicity of operation at every level, from the technical side of corporate IT to the user side. We believe we’ve delivered on this goal.”

Added John Herrema, VP & CMO of Good Technology, “Good Works will give you what Microsoft or RIM can’t or won’t: device choice with a consistent and exceptional user experience across a fractured smartphone market and with world class security and control. That is why Good Works will be the choice of smart organizations and individuals who demand openness and flexibility.”

In addition to Good Works, Good is also announcing Good for Enterprise and Good Mobile Control support for the iPhone.

In addition, Good Mobile Access provides a managed mobile virtual private network (VPN) service that gives employees secure, always-on access to corporate applications behind the firewall without requiring IT to invest time or money in proprietary SDK development.
