Sophos and Check Point Software Technologies Ltd Partner to Protect Corporate Networks from Non-Compliant Mobile Devices
Aug 26 14
Sophos and Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. announced a partnership to provide integration between Sophos' Enterprise Mobility Management solution, Sophos Mobile Control 4.0, and Check Point's Mobile VPN. The partnership means users of Sophos Mobile Control 4.0 and Check Point Mobile VPN can link the two solutions to provide network access control for any mobile devices attempting to use the corporate network. Non-compliant devices are isolated from the network, protecting the organization from unauthorized mobile devices. This ensures that only managed devices that meet an organization's security policy may connect and use business resources. Mobile devices continue to multiply rapidly in the workplace and today's flexible working styles mean that, increasingly, employees are requiring and gaining access to the corporate network wherever they are. As a result of this surge in mobility, effectively securing both corporate data and networks has become an enormous challenge for IT and security managers. Much of an IT administrator's day can be spent provisioning, securing, locating, managing and updating these mobile devices. Sophos Mobile Control continually assesses the compliance status of each mobile device detecting jailbreaks, blacklisted apps or insecure settings. Via a simple out-of-the-box interface with Check Point's Mobile VPN, it blocks any non-compliant device from accessing the corporate network through VPN, proactively reducing the risk of data breaches.
