With mobile users increasingly demanding the ability to use their own mobile devices to access work-related resources, or business users looking to use personal applications on their corporate devices, IT teams have never had more challenges to address when it comes to end-user technology decisions and data security. And, with GDPR regulations now resulting in significant penalties for breaches, this challenge is only set to grow.
Working with global leading mobile security specialists Lookout, Utelize can assist your business to rapidly address these challenges with this simple to deploy and manage service.
Many organizations are now embracing the use of smartphones and tablets to increase productivity, and as more sensitive data goes mobile, your organization’s security policies must extend to your mobile endpoint devices.
Lookout’s Mobile Endpoint Security (MES) makes it simple 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.
Utelize can help you to integrate Lookout’s Mobile Endpoint Security into your Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution and tailor your Mobile Threat Defence (MTD) policies based on the needs of your business and the different profiles of your users; providing a wide range of benefits:
Easy to deploy and maintain – Lookout MES integrates with all major UEM / MDM platforms (including MS Intune, AirWatch, MobileIron, MaaS360 and BES12)
Gain visibility into mobile incidents – provides real-time visibility via an online dashboard into security threats and incidents on mobile devices, so you can respond quickly and effectively
Secure access to Office 365 and G-Suite – continuous conditional access requires device health to be verified before devices can access corporate O365 and G-Suite services
Supports unmanaged devices – with on-device remediation of threats, policy enforcement is available for both managed and unmanaged devices, offering protection where end-user devices cannot be enrolled into UEM/MDM platforms
Enabling productive and secure mobile working has never been more relevant and important than it is today. However; IT decision makers are facing a wide range of new challenges when it comes to managing their remote workforce and mobile IT:
Ensuring that corporate data and mobile devices remain protected at all times from malware, phishing and network-based attacks
Providing secure remote access to company resources, servers and data without compromising end user productivity
Delivering high quality and consistent connectivity and support for remote workers and users across many different locations
Making sure that mobile costs and usage don’t spiral out of control, at a time when budgets simply have to be met and controlled
Experienced IT leaders recognise that the migration to remote and mobile working is changing the way that businesses need to view device and data security and manage network connectivity. Whilst locking down corporate devices and preventing access from personal devices is one option, it materially impacts productivity, can increase costs and delivers a poor end user experience.
By partnering with Utelize and Lookout, you’ll be able to find the right balance. Supporting trusted access to corporate data, whilst keeping your employees’ devices and personal information secure.
