In a new video, Skycure CTO and co-founder, Yair Amit, discusses the holistic, context-aware security that Skycure adds to AirWatch by VMware’s enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution.
Skycure gives increased peace-of-mind to AirWatch customers as attackers turn to new strategies including malware, application and network-based attacks, masque and wirelurker threats, and exploiting a potential sleeping giant of an iOS vulnerability: malicious profiles. Malware attacks have also become more sophisticated and prevalent, demanding that enterprise mobility management and mobile device management services evolve with the new breed of mobile security threats.
Proactive Mobile Security: Eliminating Latency
Time is tissue. Used by medical professionals referring to how every second following a heart attack costs new dead tissue, the aphorism holds true in mobile security where delays in remediation can wreak exponential pain. In enterprise mobility management, everything is connected and viral: eliminating latency must be top-of-mind or pain can spread like wildfire. While Skycure delivers automated remediation supported by easy-to-understand explanations and recommended responses to events, Skycure emphasizes the importance of proactive security. After all, avoiding events is the fastest way to eliminate latency (and avoid unnecessary high costs).
“[With Skycure,] we recognize that a layered approach to security is best for mobile solutions,” says John Marshall, senior vice president and general manager at AirWatch by VMware.
The most effective way to deliver proactive mobile security to enterprises and organizations handling highly sensitive information on mobile devices (including BYOD) involves a holistic security framework that encompasses the entire mobile user experience.
Only Skycure/AirWatch’s holistic approach to mobile security extends across the whole mobile user experience—from easing user adoption of Skycure with a friendly, non-disruptive publicly available apps (free to download on both iOS and Android) to leveraging sophisticated intelligence tools that can proactively extract insights about potential threats based on the mobile operating system, apps on a device, user behavior, network behavior and crowd intelligence. Skycure leverages the largest mobile security community in the world to maximize the power of crowd-based security. Each device with Skycure is also a sensor contributing non-sensitive insightful information about potential threats to the multiple layers of the whole mobile user experience. If attacks can be viral, Skycure ensures that mobile security and automated remediation are also viral in agility—eliminating latency faster than pain can spread.
