Smartphones have now ingrained itself into people’s everyday lives, so much so that employees have demanded support for a growing list of new ways to leverage this technology and enterprises are looking for ways to make it happen. While the adoption seems simple, we are also faced with the reality that organisations struggle to find a balance between empowering mobile employees to increase productivity and protecting their sensitive information in a dynamic ever-changing mobile workplace. Ideally, they would like to accomplish both without incurring the expense and time of deploying multiple new applications.
Mobile Endpoint Security makes it easy to get visibility into the entire spectrum of mobile risk, apply policies to measurably reduce that risk, and integrate into your existing security and mobile management solutions.
IT does not have a choice; it needs to address several enterprise mobility-related challenges and risks. Here are a few of them.
Fortification against app-based threats
Apps are the largest way that sensitive data is accessed on mobile devices, with risks spanning across both iOS and Android. An Application Analysis Technology that is powered by intelligence from various iOS and Android apps can give in-depth visibility into app-based risks such as:
Shield from device-based risks
When a device is compromised with software vulnerabilities, the built-in security of the operating system is bypassed. Enterprise Mobile Security can create a fingerprint of each mobile device and compare it against other devices using the security platform to identify anomalies and risks, such as:
Security from network-based risks
Network threats are typically executed by spoofing a Wi-Fi hotspot to intercept network traffic and decrypt sensitive data, often in the form of man-in-the-middle attacks. A mobile security solution analyses network connections from its global sensor network to effectively mitigate false positives while detecting high impact threats, including:
Securing corporate data
Access to corporate data should be granted based on an assumption of zero trust and the continuous assessment of an endpoint’s health. Till the time a user remains connected to the enterprise, their endpoint should be monitored dynamically. Only trusted devices should be allowed to connect to enterprise infrastructure and data, for both managed and unmanaged deployments.
