SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 18, 2012) - EdgeWave, Inc. today announced the launch of EdgeWave Mobile Security, a complete, cloud-based Web and Social Media Security solution for mobile devices. EdgeWave Mobile Security offers fully featured Mobile Device Management (MDM) and a Secure Browser to provide organizations with the most flexible options for deploying web and social media security across mobile platforms including iPhone, iPad, Android phones, Android tablets -- including Amazon Kindle Fire, Google Nexus, and Samsung Galaxy devices -- as well as Mac and Windows laptops.
This new product line enables organizations to quickly and easily extend the award-winning iPrism Web Security and Social Media Security solutions to cover all mobile devices, everywhere, including on an organization's network, on a mobile carrier's network, or on Wi-Fi.
"The ongoing proliferation of both personal devices in the workplace, commonly known as BYOD or bring your own device, and mobile devices provided by employers makes cost effective security a top priority for everyone," said Steve Kelley, SVP Corporate Development and Product Strategy at EdgeWave. "Our new EdgeWave Mobile Security empowers organizations to embrace mobile proliferation to increase productivity and communication while mitigating security risks such as inadvertent disclosure of confidential information, loss or theft of proprietary information, web and social media borne malware, and other threats."
EdgeWave Mobile Security includes EdgeWave MDM and Edgewave Secure Browser. Edgewave MDM is a full-featured cloud-based solution that includes device provisioning, separation of personal and work data, and policy distribution. Edgewave Secure Browser for mobile devices provides web security and social media security regardless of location or connection type.
Because EdgeWave Mobile Security is also fully integrated with EdgeWave Social Media Security solutions, organizations can, for the first time, effectively manage social media activity, assuring Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) enforcement, risk management and regulatory compliance. Social media filtering options are deployed from the EdgeWave management console making policies highly flexible and easy to modify.
