On the 2018 partner conference held by Lookout, mobco won the partner award for its achievements in securing mobile devices! Lookout continues to invest in mobile intelligence to detect and counter attacks on mobile devices. This intelligence is used by mobco to further secure and protect data on mobile devices.
As stated by Mike Murray, VP at Lookout, the mobile device is ‘the’ place where malicious attacks take place these days. The device contains both all your personal and business data, logins and passwords. “You use your mobile device for two factor authentication”, clearly an interesting target for someone who wants to break into the services or network you use!
Many, if not all, of attacks on mobile are actually user initiated, without them knowing: phishing! This remains one of the toughest question in the industry: how can we counter this without channeling all traffic back to our traditional network? As one of mobco’s design principles is to see the mobile device always on an outside network, it’s impossible to inspect every bit that’s being consumed by the mobile device.
Lookout is working on the next level of pro-active mobile protection against phishing to solve this. A welcome addition to our portfolio and yet another service that will help us protect your data and better secure your business!
Another interesting fact: 3 awards were won by members of the Enterprise Mobility Expert Alliance!
