At its SenchaCon2013 development conference, HTML5 development tool provider Sencha unveiled a new tool called Sencha Space that aims to remove some of the headaches of mobile development and deployment in BYOD environments.
To end users, Sencha Space appears like any other app on their smartphones or tablets, but it will house all of their work-related apps. Enterprise IT can manage all of the apps within Space without interfering with employees' personal data. "All applications are managed separately on a user's device and are perfectly safe for IT," explained Sencha's Paul Kopacki. "Everything running within Sencha Space is encrypted."
