Sencha has released version 1.3 of its Space app management platform, which lets companies install and secure applications on to all manner of devices, from laptops to tablets and smartphones.

There are four major new features and alterations in version 1.3, the main one being offline support. Here, IT departments can develop and install apps designed to work offline or with poor connectivity, whilst remaining secure. Apps can also be written in HTML5, and then given corporate branding for a completely native experience.

In Space 1.3, administrators get a further level of control over how users gain access to secure apps, and can install a final stage of authorization before a new device is added to the system. Finally, the SDK has been upgraded with a new suite of APIs, all of which are compatible with any web app, regardless of which it was originally written using.

Sencha’s Space still provides two primary parts: An app, and an admin console. The app is downloaded and installed on the device, while the admin console deals with everything from deployment of secure apps to support for the end user. Sencha’s system is a convenient way for companies to ensure business apps stay secure on mobile devices, without the need to purchase specially designed hardware.

Sencha released version 1.2 of Space back in October 2014.
