We are pleased to announce the general availability of Skycure’s integration with Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS). Read the Microsoft Intune announcement blog.
Skycure recently announced its partnership with EMS to defend against advanced mobile threats and protect enterprise resources from malicious attackers, and the integration is now available. Microsoft customers and partners now have the option to add Skycure Mobile Threat Defense to their existing EMS deployments. Skycure customers will also see Intune as an option for EMM integration in the Skycure Console.
Skycure is integrated with Microsoft’s Enterprise Mobility + Security and synchronizes with Microsoft Intune, which is included in EMS, to provide risk-based and compliance-based conditional access to corporate resources. Skycure delivers automated protection in real time and communicates the risk status of the device to Intune. Once a threat is detected, Skycure instantly activates on-device protections and notifies Intune to trigger conditional access controls to ensure that corporate data stays protected.
This type of conditional access is critical in today’s business environment, as users are regularly accessing sensitive corporate information from mobile devices outside of the corporate firewall. Given the environment of aggressive mobile attackers, intent on breaching mobile devices to steal and manipulate corporate data, it is critical to be able to block access from high risk and compromised mobile devices. EMS is designed to provide those controls through its rich conditional access capabilities, and Skycure can now supply critical real-time status of each mobile device to help trigger those actions.
We have already gotten great customer validation that this integration delivers on that vision, as seen at Private Advisors, LLC, a subsidiary of NYL. Jamie Hammock, Vice President IT Infrastructure & Business Continuity, stated “We’ve been searching for a solution that provides both management and security for mobile so we were very pleased at the simple and smooth integration of Skycure’s Microsoft integration.” He then added, “Plus, our employees love it.”
