One of the key features of the solution is protection against web-based attacks and sophisticated attacks that are typically not tracked or prevented by traditional solutions.
Additional benefits of an integrated Ivanti/Lookout solution include:
• Detect and Mitigate Cyber Threats Targeting Mobile Devices: The mobile ecosystem presents unique risks to businesses that are beyond the capabilities of traditional endpoint security solutions. From the design of operating systems to the way phishing attacks are delivered, mobile is a blind spot for any organization if smartphones and tablets are not properly secured. Lookout enables organizations to detect and mitigate cyber threats from one of the most difficult vectors to protect, one of the largest computer networks.
• Gain insight and control over mobile devices to meet privacy and compliance requirements: Ivanti customers can reduce security risks and meet compliance requirements by extending vulnerability management across all mobile devices.
• Simplify cloud adoption with secure access to SaaS applications from mobile devices: Ivanti customers can only allow trusted, uncompromised mobile devices to connect to SaaS applications. This reduces the risk of data breach from an infected mobile device introducing malware into the authentication control environment. By continuously monitoring mobile device risk posture, Lookout applies Zero Trust access controls to ensure that only healthy devices and users have access to corporate data stored in cloud applications.
• Enable a hybrid workforce to work securely from any mobile device: With the global adoption of BYOD (bring your own device), it’s important to be able to secure all iOS, Android or ChromeOS devices that can access sensitive devices. corporate information. The combined Ivanti/Lookout solution provides customers with the best possible protection against phishing attacks, malware, compromised devices and risky network connections that traditional endpoint security solutions miss.
