MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- MobileIron (NASDAQ:MOBL), the security backbone for the multi-cloud enterprise, today announced that MobileIron Access has been selected as winner of the Mobile Security "Application Security Solution of the Year" award from CyberSecurity Breakthrough, an independent organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies, and products in the global information security market today.
There are a variety of security risks that exist between devices and apps and the services to which they connect. For example:
- Jailbroken device: An employee uses Office 365 mobile app to access business data from a jailbroken device. Business data is now on a hacked device.
- Unauthorized Mac or PC: An employee syncs Google Drive files to a personal computer. Business data is now on an unsecured device.
- Unauthorized cloud 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 unsecured mobile app.
The critical link between the mobile app and the cloud service, MobileIron Access solves these security risks by acting as a gate on the authentication path between the user and the cloud data. With MobileIron Access, only trusted users on trusted devices using trusted applications can get to that data. Untrusted users, apps, and devices are blocked.
"We believe we are the first to solve this problem and are proud to see MobileIron Access recognized by CyberSecurity Breakthrough," said Barry Mainz, President and CEO, MobileIron. "Identity solutions and cloud gateways alone are insufficient because they lack visibility and control over the security posture of mobile devices and apps. MobileIron Access is the next generation of cloud security and lets our customers confidently expand their use of cloud services."
The mission of the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of information security categories, including Cloud Security, Threat Detection, Risk Management, Fraud Prevention, Mobile Security, Email Security and many more. This year's program attracted more than 2,000 nominations from over 12 different countries throughout the world.
