Skycure mobile user experiences are painless, providing continuous defense without compromising user privacy or adding extra burden to IT.

Skycure Solution Advantages

Skycure Mobile Threat Defense includes:

Malware Defense

Skycure uses a multi-layered approach to detect malware based on parameters such as signatures, user behavioral, static/dynamic analysis, source origin, structure and permissions. Many available blacklists of malicious applications are also leveraged in the analysis. All this allows organizations to:

  • Defend against malicious repackaged apps
  • Monitor, analyze and detect anomalies in both new and already installed apps
  • Receive a Skycure Risk Score for the apps and integrate it with existing risk management solutions
  • Enact guided incident responses against mobile malware and spyware.

Network Defense

Network-based mobile attacks are the biggest threat to any organization today. Mobile devices connect to networks ten times more often than other endpoints. Skycure utilizes its patented Active Honeypot approach to proactively secure mobile devices against network-based attacks. Benefits include:

  • Helping with detection, blocking and remediation of malicious iOS profiles
  • Safeguarding corporate credentials from networks performing Man-in-the-Middle (MitM) attacks and traffic decryption or redirection
  • Securely tunneling traffic through Skycure VPN when under active threat
  • Integrating with corporate VPN (such as Check Point) to block access to sensitive assets while a device is connected to a high-risk network.

Vulnerability Defense

Attackers take advantage of very specific security holes in mobile applications, software libraries and mobile operating systems to replace normal software functionality with malicious functionality. Discovering all vulnerabilities may require a great amount of time, effort and deep research. Dedicated Skycure research teams focus on staying ahead of attackers and providing enterprises with the most comprehensive protection by:

  • Detecting exploited vulnerabilities from unknown vulnerabilities
  • Uncovering zero-day vulnerabilities (such as Invisible Malicious Profiles) in apps and operating systems while also informing the respective vendors
  • Detecting exploited vulnerabilities from known vulnerabilities such as the Heartbleed bug and HTTP Request Hijacking
  • Educating and alerting users about pending security fixes and notifying IT security staff.

Physical Defense

Skycure can either integrate with an existing corporate Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution (such as AirWatch or MobileIron) or provide native MDM functionality, including:

  • Remote wipe in case a device is lost or compromised
  • Passcode lock to protect corporate information
  • Detection and protection for USB Debugging, jailbroken/rooted devices
  • Comprehensive reporting on devices, users and groups

Mobile Threat Intelligence: Predict, Detect, Prevent

Predictive intelligence and analytics that can instantly extract insights from big data have been pivotal to business success. Why not leverage the same powerful capabilities to greatly enhance mobile security? Skycure is a pioneer and sole provider of mobile threat intelligence data. Information on threats and attacks are publicly shared by Skycure at https://maps.skycure.com. Skycure protects businesses 24/7, by predicting, detecting and preventing attacks before they can intrude along the full range of mobile attack vectors.

Crowd Wisdom Combined With Machine Learning

Skycure protects against zero-day attacks leveraging the most effective mobile security community in the world. Skycure transforms devices into sensors via publicly available iOS and Android apps, which feed non-private information to the Skycure Threats Analysis Engine, constantly improving the security posture of all Skycure customers.

Benefits for IT

Proactive Multi-Vector Defense

Skycure can stand-alone or integrate with existing MDM to upgrade reactive mobile security into proactive, multi-vector defense. Portable with users anywhere in the world, Skycure apps actively identify and protect against threats and vulnerabilities along all mobile attack vectors. Containerization and VPN tunneling are reactive approaches to mobile security. On its own, MDM is also a reactive approach that cannot proactively remediate without somehow being fed insights about the active threats that can pose problems to mobile devices on a daily basis.

Skycure is easy-to-deploy and can linearly scale to protect any number of mobile devices.

Real-Time Visibility and Reporting

The Skycure security dashboard provides complete visibility and reporting into the following:

  • Affected devices and users
  • Compliance policy violations
  • Suspicious networks and applications
  • Incidents based on geographical locations
  • OS versions and vulnerabilities
  • Device health status (including detection of jailbroken/rooted devices)
Enterprise Integrations

Skycure can be deployed in the cloud or on-premises within minutes, integrating, if desired, with existing MDM, VPN, Exchange, SIEM and other enterprise systems. Whether via integration or stand-alone, Skycure solutions cover all of the bases of enterprise mobile security.

Benefits For Employees

Easy Deployment

Skycure is simple to download and does not change a device or how the device is used. Users can continue to enjoy their favorite apps and access information in the same familiar way. In a way, Skycure acts like a 24×7 digital “guardian angel” that protects private and company data from hackers.

Non-Invasive User Experiences

Users can run Skycure in the background without draining battery power or disrupting productivity. BYOD users prefer Skycure over exposing private information to legacy mobile security measures (e.g., VPN tunneling) or impacting their user experience by solutions that require a change in their behavior (e.g. containerization).
