Lacoon Announces Integration With MobileIron Technology Alliance

Lacoon Integration Brings Enhanced Security Capabilities to MobileIron Ecosystem

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 23, 2014) - Lacoon Mobile Security, a leading provider of advanced mobile cyber security solutions, today announced that it has joined MobileIron's Technology Alliance Partner ecosystem. Lacoon's integration with MobileIron's leading enterprise mobility management (EMM) software adds an additional layer of security with a platform to assess, detect and mitigate risk.

The Lacoon Mobile Threat Management Platform is a powerful SaaS solution that accurately detects advanced mobile threats, mitigates risks and assesses vulnerabilities, protecting corporate data and assets accessed by mobile devices. The integration with MobileIron allows users to strengthen mobile device policy management and enforcement, simplify the roll out of advanced mobile security and lower operational costs.

With Lacoon and MobileIron, users can:

  • Strengthen Mobile Device Policy Management and Enforcement: Once a compromised device is detected, Lacoon can trigger a series of enforcement activities to mitigate the effect of the malware on the infected device and corporate assets. These include:
    • Threat-Based Mitigation Actions: Instructing MobileIron to remove or block access to applications/content from the device.
    • Active Protection: Adding a layer of protection from Lacoon that blocks the communication between the attacker and the infected device to prevent any data exfiltration until full remediation can be done by the IT team.

  • Simplify the Roll out of Advanced Mobile Security: The integrated solution simplifies ongoing management and maintenance of your mobility initiatives, enabling users to quickly and easily:
    • Add Devices: New devices will be automatically protected by Lacoon as soon as they are in active mode within the MobileIron system. When a new device is added, an email is automatically sent to the user with registration instructions that detail how to install and activate the Lacoon client.
    • Remove Devices: Devices will also be automatically deleted from Lacoon's protection once they have been removed or retired from MobileIron.
    • Keep Policies Up to Date: The system will periodically check for device updates with MobileIron and update Lacoon devices according to policy enforcement across the enterprise.
    • Enforce Security Measures: MobileIron can be configured to enforce enrolled devices to install the Lacoon client by setting it as a required application. If the Lacoon client is not installed, the device is blocked from accessing corporate resources. This ensures a consistent security stance across devices and supports enterprise compliance requirements.

  • Lower Ongoing Operational Costs: Lacoon enables customers using MobileIron's platform to automatically synchronize MobileIron devices with Lacoon's management dashboard to automate device management and reduce operational costs and overhead.

"As mobile devices become indispensible in the enterprise, mobile threats are now more sophisticated and create additional risk for data loss. A layered approach to mobile security is a critical component to an organization's comprehensive security strategy," said John Spencer, Vice President of Ecosystem, MobileIron. "This partnership delivers the advanced mobile threat protection and mitigation capabilities needed for strong mobile policy enforcement."
