SAN FRANCISCO, CA, November 13, 2018 – Wandera, a leading provider of mobile security and IBM MaaS360 with Watson, a global leader in unified endpoint management (UEM), today announced that IBM Security will offer Wandera’s mobile security and policy to its customers as a seamlessly integrated solution.
The joint solution will enable IBM’s enterprise customers to benefit from mobile threat defense and web filtering for iOS, Android and Windows 10 devices, providing best in class protection against the full spectrum of known and zero-day threats as well as complete visibility and control over mobile data usage.
Mobile data is growing exponentially and the security risk is tangible. Mobile attacks are increasingly sophisticated and widespread across all the major platforms, with hackers able to eavesdrop or monitor user interactions from compromised devices and secretly funnel data to command and control servers around the globe. Over the past year enterprises have witnessed a mobile phishing wave that targets distracted mobile users in an attempt to steal credentials as a launch pad for new attacks.
Wandera’s pioneering cloud gateway approach is uniquely positioned to defend against such zero-day attacks. Award winning machine learning engine MI:RIAM processes billions of daily data inputs from the world’s largest mobile dataset. Wandera scans more than 1,600,000 unique apps and blocks over 17 million threats on behalf of its customers each year. These insights into mobile data can then be used to identify threats, and in addition help businesses to tackle issues like non-compliant activity, shadow IT and rising data costs by enforcing fully customizable, real-time policy controls.
“We’re excited to partner with IBM to introduce our mobile security and data management solution into its portfolio of enterprise security services. We’ve been working with a laser focus to optimize our integration with MaaS360 so that IBM customers can now enjoy a zero touch experience with the complementary offerings coming together seamlessly, offering enterprises the very best mobile security available today” said Roy Tuvey, President and Founder of Wandera.
“We’re really impressed with the solution offered by Wandera. In a crowded security marketplace, Wandera stood out as the clear choice for enterprises that want the same visibility and peace of mind for the protection of their mobile fleets as they currently enjoy for their desktops and networks. Wandera’s use of insights for mobile security and data management and integration with IBM MaaS360 fits well with IBM’s strategy for Cognitive Unified Endpoint Management.” said Ravi Srinivasan, Vice President, Product Management at IBM Security.
Key features of the joint offering include: zero-touch deployment, web content filtering, granular policy controls to block traffic to apps and websites, the ability to block traffic in real-time based on the network used whether it’s roaming, cellular, Wi-Fi or tethering and deeper app-based risk assessments.
The Wandera security and data management services will be available to all IBM Security customers. For more information about Wandera and IBM’s partnership, visit https://www.wandera.com/about-wandera/wandera-in-the-media/press-archive/ibm-and-wandera/.
