Sophos Mobile Control EMM Platform Offers Web Protection
The platform also provides integration with the company’s unified threat management solutions, Checkpoint and Cisco to provide network access control.Mobile security specialist Sophos announced Sophos Mobile Control (SMC) 4.0, an enterprise mobility management (EMM) platform that includes individual file encryption, integrated antivirus (AV) protection and Web filtering. In addition to file-level encryption, which gates access to each file, to protect the data in the office and on the go, SMC 4.0 also offers integrated security against malware and malicious Websites for Android devices, which are disproportionately prone to Web threats. With Web protection for Android, IT administrators can select Website categories to control access and block data-stealing or inappropriate Web pages. The platform also provides integration with the company’s unified threat management (UTM) solutions, Checkpoint and Cisco to provide network access control.
"SMC 4.0 extends the Sophos commitment to delivering comprehensive data protection, offering solutions to manage, secure and protect not just the mobile devices themselves, but also the content and applications on those devices," Dan Schiappa, senior vice president and general manager of Sophos’ end-user security group, said in a statement. "SMC 4.0 takes data protection beyond the office door by ensuring persistent mobile encryption on devices. Additional network access control based on device compliance status makes mobile device management, content management and mobile security simple and effective."
