Business Issues -> Security & Risk
Released: 24th June 2014
Lindon, Utah, London, UK – June 24, 2014, AccessData, the leader in incident resolution solutions, has bridged the security gap between prevention-focused mobile device management (MDM) solutions and mobile threat detection and response, by adding mobile device support in the ResolutionOne Platform. ResolutionOne integrates network, endpoint and malware analysis, threat intelligence, end-to-end e-discovery and remediation technologies into a single, scalable platform.
The explosive growth of BYOD and mobile devices provides increasingly attractive entry points through which cyber criminals are penetrating corporate networks. The rapid growth of advanced attacks, in the form of mobile malware, data leakage and insider threats, is escalating as information security teams struggle to rapidly detect and respond to these security incidents. Add to that the challenges of deploying threat detection and remediation capabilities across a company’s networks and endpoints – including thousands of mobile devices housing enormous amounts of sensitive data – and the cybersecurity situation seems insurmountable for many corporations.
In a technology first, the mobile device support provides comprehensive, real-time visibility, intelligence and resolution capabilities across iOS and Android devices on or off corporate networks. The platform is the first to incorporate current MDM and MAM mobile device policies with real-time proactive mobile device monitoring to discover, analyse, respond to and resolve mobile threats at an enterprise scale.
“Organisations face growing challenges with multiple niche point products that are unable to provide the complete picture on incidents of all types,” said Lee Reiber, Vice President Mobile Solutions at AccessData. “They rely on MDM and MAM solutions to handle their mobile security. This represents a false sense of security as the software is not equipped to deliver incident detection, response, and remediation. To address this need, we incorporated our advanced mobile forensics capabilities into the ResolutionOne Platform to extend rapid threat detection, analysis and resolution across iOS and Android devices.”
The mobile endpoint monitoring feature operates in a similar fashion to the desktop version. The mobile agent is delivered silently to iOS and Android devices which are connected to the enterprise’s network via a MDM or MAM application catalogue. The devices are then monitored by the ResolutionOne Platform where processes, network communications and mobile device data are captured at predefined intervals. The data is auto-correlated with the ThreatBridge engine’s integrated, customisable threat intelligence library, to identify any known threats such as malicious IP addresses and known malware. It also detects unknown threats by providing visibility into network communications and running processes, so anomalous activities can be identified and remediated.
The ResolutionOne Platform with the mobile agent capabilities improves information security and business processes with actionable intelligence to quickly identify and resolve security incidents.
