Check Point Launches Mobile Threat Prevention Platform
The platform helps businesses with bring-your-own-device (BYOD) programs protect against mobile security threats.Security specialist Check Point Software Technologies announced the release of Mobile Threat Prevention, a mobile security platform that allows enterprises to combat the mobile threat environment. The platform offers a set of tools for stopping mobile threats on iOS and Android, and delivers real-time threat intelligence and visibility for extension into existing security and mobility infrastructures. Key features include malicious application detection, network threat detection and operating system threat detection, as well as a cloud-based dashboard for managing supported devices and controlling mobile threats. "Businesses are unfamiliar with today's threat landscape. The first step organizations need to take is to put a strategy in place for mobile security so that they know what they're up against, and from there identify the best solutions for protecting against those threats," Avi Bashan, mobile technology leader at Check Point, told eWEEK. "We created Mobile Threat Prevention with the users in mind and designed a tool that gives simple, actionable intelligence for protecting users and networks against mobile threats."
The platform also integrates with an organization's mobile device management (MDM) or enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution to make delivering advanced security for mobile devices easier.
