MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- MobileIron (NASDAQ:MOBL), the security backbone for the digital enterprise, announced today that MobileIron Access has been shortlisted by the National Technology Awards for the Security Product of the Year.
MobileIron Access is the critical security link between the mobile app and the cloud service. Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) alone can't prevent users from accessing cloud services via unmanaged apps or browsers. Neither Identity Access Managers (IAMs) nor Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASBs) have the ability to allow or deny access to a cloud service based on the state of the mobile app or device (e.g. what OS-version is it running, is it jailbroken or rooted).
Here are common security risks that MobileIron Access solves:
- Jailbroken phone: An employee uses Office 365 mobile app to access business data on a jailbroken smartphone. Business data is now on a hacked device.
- Unmanaged device: A salesperson downloads Salesforce1 app to their spouse's iPad. Business data is now on an unsecured device.
- Parasite app: A salesperson downloads one of the dozens of apps that use APIs to connect to the salesforce.com cloud service. Business data is now in an unauthorized mobile app.
In each of these risky scenarios, the cloud service does not know if the device or app is non-compliant but MobileIron Access does, and it ensures that only trusted apps on trusted devices can access Microsoft Office 365, Salesforce, and other business cloud services.
The National Technology Awards, hosted by FStech Magazine, are the showcase for the leaders of technology. The National Technology Awards were created to allow the technology sector to shine, celebrating the pioneers of new technology and to help drive standards and encourage excellence.
The winners will be determined by an independent judging panel and announced at the National Technology Awards Gala and Dinner on 17 May 2017 at the Millennium Hotel London Mayfair.
