SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Lookout ,
the leader in securing the post-perimeter world, announced today that
. Lookout Endpoint
Security provides comprehensive and continuous assessment of risk across
iOS and Android devices to secure against app, device and network-based
Mobile Threat Defense solutions have graduated to become an important
part of an enterprise’s security architecture. Enterprises are embracing
cloud solutions to perform central work tasks. These solutions house
sensitive corporate data, which employees can access from any endpoint,
including mobile devices, from any network. A corporation’s traditional
perimeter security, in this new world of work, no longer applies.
Enterprises have a new mandate to protect data from threats and risks
that are unique to this work-from-anywhere environment.
According to Gartner, “Mobile threat defense (MTD) solutions have
matured and can provide value to organizations looking to strengthen
their mobile security. Security and risk management leaders should
leverage MTD to address evolving mobile security needs.” Lookout 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
“We believe our inclusion in the 2018 Gartner Market Guide for Mobile
Threat Defense validates our vision of a security architecture that
protect enterprises in today’s perimeter-less, cloud-delivered, and
privacy-focused world,” said Jim Dolce, CEO, Lookout. “As our customers
and partners are faced with the rapid rise of a mobile-first workforce
and sophisticated attacks that take advantage of this perimeter-less
world, they need security that connects endpoint protection, access to
cloud services, and identity, across managed and unmanaged devices.”
As the proven leader in the Mobile Threat Defense market, Lookout Mobile
Endpoint Security is uniquely positioned to deliver post-perimeter
security. Centered on the continuous protection of corporate data when
accessed by devices outside the corporate perimeter, Lookout:
- Enables continuous conditional access to their corporate data, from
any device. With Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security, enterprises have
the opportunity to select, based on their risk tolerance, policies
that help ensure devices stay compliant with internal and external
mandates. If a device exceeds the acceptable level of risk, as defined
by the enterprise, Lookout will send a remediation message to the
employee, flag the issue to the admin in the Lookout Mobile Endpoint
Security console, and log the employee out of any corporate resources.
- Moves security to the endpoint. Lookout Phishing and Content
Protection lives on the device, monitoring for phishing attacks across
many vectors including social media apps, messaging apps, SMS, and any
app that makes a network connection.
Lookout combines cloud-based detection informed by millions of endpoints
with leading on-device security to deliver continuous risk assessment of
an endpoint. Whether connected or off line, Lookout provides the ability
to detect and remediate threats using a hybrid approach to cloud and
device based security. Lookout’s ability to dynamically allow or block
access gives organizations the ability to build policies that define how
users connect to the enterprise on devices that are often beyond the
reach of IT.
