Lua Joins App Configuration for Enterprise (ACE) Program

The secure mobile messaging platform provider Lua has announced it has joined the App Configuration for Enterprise (ACE) program. The ACE program was recently launched to create a standard approach to configuring and securing apps in the enterprise.

ACE has developed an operating framework incorporating APIs from operating system platforms such as Android and Apple iOS. By using the framework, developers can create new, secure apps with minimal effort. Lua has joined founding members Cisco, Salesforce, Workday, Box, Xamarin, and AirWatch in the program. The Lua platform has also been made available on the AirWatch Marketplace.

The new ACE integration allows all organizations running the EMM solution to easily administer Lua as a managed application.

“As a member of ACE we are able to offer customers mobile messaging in a secure, easy-to-manage EMM environment,” said Brian Feller, Vice President of Corporate Development at Lua. “Executives across all industries are concerned with security and amplifying their employees’ productivity. Secure mobile messaging is the cornerstone of a complete mobile strategy.”

Lua will be showcasing its ACE solution at the June 16, 2015 VMWare Business Mobility Summit. “VMware is delighted to have Lua, a leader in mobile collaboration, join ACE to help drive mobile adoption in business,” said Mimi Spier, senior director of strategic business development at VMWare and ACE program leader. “Instant communication from any device in industries like healthcare, education and hospitality is critical to productive teams.”
