Iboss MobileEther Brings Mobile Device Management to SMBs
The platform shortens the response time to remediation, which can decrease the financial impact of lost, stolen or compromised devices.Web security solutions specialist Iboss Network Security announced the availability of MobileEther, a mobile device management (MDM) solution to extend beyond traditional mobile management and provide organizations with security and compliance capabilities. Features include HTTP/S Web filtering with flexible user access and directory integration; traffic scanning and identification of embedded threats, such as malware, botnets, and new and unknown threats; and identification and securing of unencrypted, sensitive data transmissions like credit card information and Social Security numbers. Rounding out the feature set is sophisticated signature and heuristic-based intrusion prevention and detection and cloud-based email security scans to detect viruses, malware and data loss, and to protect against denial-of-service (DoS) attacks. The platform also shortens the response time to remediation, which can decrease the financial impact of lost, stolen or compromised devices, and ensures that mobile devices in the workplace adhere to Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Payment Card Industry (PCI) and Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) regulations, among others, along with acceptable use policies.
"Smartphones and tablets are considered essential across almost every workforce. However, the need for these devices to meet regulatory compliance is eroding the effectiveness of traditional mobile device management solutions," Paul Martini, CEO of Iboss, said in a statement. "Many organizations resort to deploying two solutions to meet security and compliance needs. MobileEther solves this challenge by providing a unified approach to managing and securing mobile devices in the enterprise."
