Lookout announced yesterday that they will be partnering with Microsoft to integrate Lookout Mobile Threat Protection with the Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS). With the new integration of the two mobile platforms, these two companies aim to give enterprises an easier way to protect and manage sensitive data.
Mobile devices are an essential part of modern day communications, transactions and production. They are one of the target surfaces for hackers today and the threat of exploiting mobile devices poses risks to organizations including data loss, and disruption of business services.
Miercom recently tested Lookout’s consumer product, Lookout Personal for Android, against other leading solutions, and the detection and performance features of their consumer product met or exceeded expectations earning it the Miercom Certified Secure certification. Lookouts ability in this test to detect 100% of Android malware samples delivered via FTP, USB, email, Bluetooth, HTTP/HTTPS and TeamViewer gives us confidence that Microsoft has made a wise choice in their mobile security partnership with Lookout.
Lookout and Microsoft hope to make the lives of IT and security leaders easier with this new partnership, as Michael McBride SVP of Worldwide Field Operations wrote on the Lookout blog: “The Microsoft and Lookout integration will give business customers peace of mind: employees will benefit from the freedom and flexibility of mobile productivity, and mobility teams will get the comfort of knowing those devices are comprehensively secure.”
