Lacoon Collaborates With AirWatch to Manage and Reduce the Risks iOS and Android Devices Pose to Enterprises

Lacoon Provides Additional Layers of Security for Customers Through a Platform to Assess, Detect and Mitigate Risk

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 8, 2014) - Lacoon Mobile Security, a leading provider of advanced mobile cyber security solutions, announced today an integration with AirWatch® by VMware, the leading enterprise mobility management (EMM) provider, enabling enterprises to securely manage and mitigate the risks posed by BYOD and other mobility initiatives. Together, Lacoon and AirWatch give companies the ability to protect corporate assets from mobile cyber attacks, including zero-day and advanced persistent threats (APTs).

The Lacoon Mobile Threat Management Platform is a powerful SaaS solution that accurately assesses mobile security vulnerabilities, detects advanced threats and mitigates the risks that iOS and Android devices and applications pose to corporate resources. The integration with AirWatch provides organizations with additional mobile device management (MDM) policies and enforcements to reflect real-time risk levels, simplify the roll out of advanced mobile security and lower operational costs.

"As cyber attacks become more sophisticated, it's important that organizations recognize the importance of having a comprehensive mobile security strategy that ties into their broader security infrastructure," said John Marshall, senior vice president and general manager, AirWatch by VMware. "This collaboration can deliver adaptive and advanced mobile threat protection capabilities needed for strong and effective mobile policy enforcement."

Key features -

  • Unparalleled Threat Detection Capabilities - The unique ability to correlate findings from proprietary behavioral algorithms, with real-time information on device activity and network connections, enables Lacoon to detect attacks.
  • Comprehensive Vulnerability and Threat Assessment Capabilities - Lacoon looks at all the different threat vectors attackers can try to exploit on devices, in applications and in the network, to determine the risks introduced by an enterprise's mobility.
  • Risk-Based Mitigation - Enterprises can choose how best to manage and mitigate their risks, with remediation options on the device or through the integration, with the ability to remove or block an AirWatch profile from the device, thus preventing the risk of accessing corporate resources until the threat is eliminated. 
  • Real-Time Risk Profiles - Based on ongoing threat assessments, Lacoon assigns a real-time risk score (low, medium or high) representing the threat-level of each device.
  • Enterprise-Ready Solution - The integration enables customers to quickly and easily roll out Lacoon's security measures while keeping operational costs low. The integration makes it easy to add, remove, update and enforce corporate security policies.
  • Minimal User Impact - The non-intrusive, easily deployable solution provides security without impacting the end user's experience or privacy.

"The sophistication of today's iOS and Android threats can come from a variety of angles -- on the device, in applications or in the network," stated Michael Shaulov, co-founder and CEO, Lacoon. "Lacoon augments MDM solutions, providing the additional management and mitigation capabilities that enterprises need to accurately identify and stop mobile threats to protect their corporate assets."
