iboss Network Security Announces Industry's First Unified Mobile Device Management and Web Security Solution

MobileEther Delivers Advanced Security Features and Compliance-Ready Reporting for a Holistic Approach to Managing Mobile Devices

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 25, 2014) - iboss Network Security today announced the availability of MobileEther, the industry's first mobile device management (MDM) solution to extend beyond traditional mobile management, providing organizations with robust security and compliance capabilities.

MobileEther is the only mobile security solution to combine traditional MDM, such as data loss prevention, with advanced Web and mobile malware protection, detailed reporting and directory-based user authentication. In combination, these features empower organizations to capitalize on the benefits of a mobile workforce, while still adhering to the strictest security and compliance standards.

"Smartphones and tablets are considered essential across almost every workforce. However, the need for these devices to meet regulatory compliance is eroding the effectiveness of traditional mobile device management solutions," said Paul Martini, CEO, iboss. "Many organizations resort to deploying two solutions to meet security and compliance needs. MobileEther solves this challenge by providing a unified approach to managing and securing mobile devices in the enterprise."

MobileEther delivers direct business benefits to organizations. For example, the solution's unified reporting improves employee productivity significantly. MobileEther also shortens the response time to remediation, which can decrease the financial impact of lost, stolen or compromised device.

MobileEther ensures that mobile devices in the workplace adhere to CIPA, HIPAA, PCI and FISMA regulations, among others, along with acceptable use policies. Key benefits include:

  • HTTP/S Web filtering with flexible user access and directory integration
  • Traffic scanning and identification of embedded threats (malware, botnets, new / unknown threats)
  • Identification and securing of unencrypted, sensitive data transmissions (credit card information, social security numbers)
  • Sophisticated signature and heuristic-based intrusion prevention and detection
  • Cloud based email security scans to detect viruses, malware, data loss, and protect against DoS attacks

The iboss MobileEther platform is available now. For a demo, please contact sales@iboss.com.
