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) -- 09/08/14 -- 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."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
