SAN FRANCISCO, November 07, 2018 – Wandera, a leading mobile security company, is pleased to be included in the latest Gartner Market Guide for Mobile Threat Defense, published on October 30, 2018. This is the third year in a row Wandera has been acknowledged in Gartner’s report, which is designed to help security and risk management leaders to better understand the mobile threat defense market and assess solutions to address their organization’s specific needs.

This year, Gartner’s research states “Mobile threat defense (MTD) solutions have matured and can provide value to organizations looking to strengthen their mobile security. Security and risk management leaders should leverage MTD to address evolving mobile security needs”.

The Market Guide notes four use cases for MTD, which we feel are now driving strategic discussions around mobile security. These use cases are mobile phishing, unmanaged devices, app vetting, and compliance.

The report identifies a set of capabilities that establish a common baseline of MTD functionality. Wandera was evaluated for the following additional 11 capabilities among vendors listed in the report:

  • Device vulnerability management
  • App vetting
  • Anti-mobile phishing
  • Device attack protection
  • Content filtering
  • Cellular network attack protection
  • Secure transport enforcement
  • UAM/MAM integration
  • SIEM integration
  • Deployment method (app, SDK, proxy)
  • On-premises option

“60% of enterprises surveyed believe mobile malware incidences are underreported.” according to a Gartner survey.

Wandera supports three distinct MTD deployment models, including (1) the stand-alone Wandera MTD endpoint app; (2) Wandera MTD with Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) integration; and (3) Wandera MTD with network threat prevention. Wandera’s unique architecture provides a number of advantages which help it to keep pace with emerging use cases, including zero-day mobile phishing protection and failsafe encryption.
