The frequency of mobile attacks is growing - and no-one is immune.
Business is carried out more and more on mobile devices, dramatically
increasing the likelihood of a network attack or infection. A recent
report by Dimensional Research found that two out of 10 enterprises
have already experienced a mobile cyberattack, with an even larger
number totally unaware they have been breached.
Mobile Threat Protection
Based on Check Point Sandblast Mobile
technology, Mobile Threat Protection is an Orange managed service. It
embeds an easy-to-deploy app that runs in the background of the user's
device. It protects the device with accurate threat detection and alerts
to attacks, without impacting device performance or battery life. The
service runs on both iOS and Android (News - Alert) platforms and is not tied to any
specific carrier. An admin dashboard gives a global outlook of the fleet
security and provides detailed threat analysis.
Mobile Threat Protection can detect next-generation malware together
with vulnerabilities in networks, operating systems and apps, as well as
SMS phishing. It defends mobile devices from a wide range of attacks,
including malware infected apps, man-in-the-middle attacks on
compromised public Wi-Fi and Bluetooth networks,operating system
exploits and the fast-expanding trend for sending malicious links
Orange Mobile Threat Protection can be used as a standalone managed
service to highlight threat visibility, letting companies adapt security
policies accordingly, or integrated directly into mobile device
management solutions to automate threat remediation and shorten risk
exposure. This includes Orange Device Management Premium, an EMM managed
service which enables enterprises to manage mobile deployments and
enforce corporate data security policies using a granular compliance
engine. Both services are supported by Orange mobile experts who provide
24/7 support and ongoing training to improve end-users awareness in
securely managing sensitive data.
"As attacks become more frequent and sophisticated our customers are
looking to shore up their mobile security. Our Mobile Threat Protection
managed service provides a comprehensive and easy-to deploy solution to
help secure mobile devices from advanced cyber threats now - and in the
future," said Michel Van Den Berghe, CEO of Orange Cyberdefense.
"We are excited to collaborate with Orange Business Services to deliver
this level of cyber protection to mobile users," said Nathan Shuchami,
Vice President of Emerging Products at Check Point Software (News - Alert)
Technologies. "As a direct result of the close relationship between our
companies, we are empowering enterprises to adopt mobile technology
without the worry of data loss or breach."
