IBM & Wandera Introduce Mobile
November 23, 2018
Security will offer Wandera’s mobile security and policy to its
customers as a seamlessly integrated solution.
The joint solution will enable IBM’s enterprise customers to benefit
from mobile threat defense and web filtering for iOS, Android and
Windows 10 devices, providing best in class protection against the full
spectrum of known and zero-day threats as well as complete visibility
and control over mobile data usage.
Mobile data is growing exponentially and the security risk is tangible.
Mobile attacks are increasingly sophisticated and widespread across all
the major platforms, with hackers able to eavesdrop or monitor user
interactions from compromised devices and secretly funnel data to
command and control servers around the globe. Over the past year
enterprises have witnessed a mobile phishing wave that targets
distracted mobile users in an attempt to steal credentials as a launch
pad for new attacks.
Wandera’s pioneering cloud gateway approach is uniquely positioned to
defend against such zero-day attacks. Award winning machine learning
engine MI:RIAM processes billions of daily data inputs from the world’s
largest mobile dataset. Wandera scans more than 1,600,000 unique apps
and blocks over 17 million threats on behalf of its customers each year.
These insights into mobile data can then be used to identify threats,
and in addition help businesses to tackle issues like non-compliant
activity, shadow IT and rising data costs by enforcing fully
customizable, real-time policy controls.
“We’re excited to partner with IBM to introduce our mobile security and
data management solution into its portfolio of enterprise security
services. We’ve been working with a laser focus to optimize our
integration with MaaS360 so that IBM customers can now enjoy a zero
touch experience with the complementary offerings coming together
seamlessly, offering enterprises the very best mobile security available
today” said Roy Tuvey, President and Founder of Wandera.
really impressed with the solution offered by Wandera. In a crowded
security marketplace, Wandera stood out as the clear choice for
enterprises that want the same visibility and peace of mind for the
protection of their mobile fleets as they currently enjoy for their
desktops and networks. Wandera’s use of insights for mobile security and
data management and integration with IBM MaaS360 fits well with IBM’s
strategy for Cognitive Unified Endpoint Management.” said Ravi
Srinivasan, Vice President, Product Management at IBM Security.
Key features of the joint offering include: zero-touch deployment, web
content filtering, granular policy controls to block traffic to apps and
websites, the ability to block traffic in real-time based on the network
used whether it’s roaming, cellular, Wi-Fi or tethering and deeper
app-based risk assessments.
The Wandera security and data management services will be available to
