While the market of mobile apps is booming, problems for companies and their employees associated with cyber security are growing. There are innovative businesses that support them in their security and management of mobility. Today, Pradeo announced it has joined forces with MobileIron to work hand in hand to strengthen the security of corporate mobile device fleets.
Pradeo and MobileIron offer better user protection
The MobileIron platform was built to secure and manage modern operating systems in a world of mixed-use devices. It incorporates identity, context, and privacy enforcement to set the appropriate level of access to enterprise data and services. MobileIron secures data-at-rest on the device, in apps, and in cloud storage, and secures data-in-motion as it moves between the corporate network, devices, and storage repositories. With MobileIron, IT can secure corporate information wherever it lives while preserving employee privacy.
With the Pradeo partnership, MobileIron customers can benefit from a particularly innovative anti-malware protection service to conduct security checks on the mobile applications installed on their fleet. This service, which is pre-integrated into the platform, is easy for the clients to use: they deploy Pradeo’s CheckMyApps Service (available in SaaS mode), then create an account and define their target security policy regarding mobile applications. The CheckMyApps platform automatically connects to the MobileIron server in order to launch a live download of all the applications installed on the fleet’s mobile devices, assess their security and ensuring devices meet the customer’s predetermined security parameters.
More than a partnership, a real synergy
MobileIron’s partnership with Pradeo compliments its security and management capabilities.
“We are committed to bringing our customers innovations to power their strategic mobility initiatives. By joining forces with Pradeo, we will be able to better serve companies battling new malware,” said John Spencer, vice president of Ecosystem, MobileIron. “Security is a crucial issue for enterprises today, and we support them in securing corporate information wherever it lives while preserving employee privacy.”
For Pradeo, founded in Montpellier in the South of France, this partnership is a major step in their development: this agreement reinforces the importance of securing and managing mobile devices.
Stéphane Saad, co-founder of Pradeo, underlines: “This partnership validates our strategy and confirms our convictions: behavioural analysis of mobile apps is the solution of the future, which was missing on the market up until today, in order to efficiently protect mobile devices from threats inherent to mobile apps. This opens up access to new markets, and confirms our decision of opening an office in San Francisco.”
