Mobile Endpoint Security delivers

Many organisations are now embracing the use of smartphones and tablets to increase productivity in the workplace, and as more sensitive data goes mobile, your organisation’s security policies must extend to your mobile endpoint devices. Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security makes it easy to get visibility into the entire spectrum of mobile risk, apply policies to measurably reduce that risk, and integrate into your existing security and mobile management solutions.

The success of Lookout’s personal and enterprise mobile endpoint products has given us visibility into over 100 million mobile devices worldwide. This unparalleled visibility into mobile apps, networks, and OS firmware allows us to implement machine learning to detect emerging threats with high fidelity.

Protection from app-based risks

Apps are the predominant way that sensitive data is accessed on mobile devices, with risks spanning across both iOS and Android. Lookout’s app analysis technology is powered by intelligence from over 40 million iOS and Android apps, giving you visibility into app-based risks such as:

  • Trojans and spyware that can exfiltrate data from the device
  • Vulnerabilities in app data transfer and storage
  • Risky app behaviours that pose a compliance risk
  • Sideloaded apps that bypass official app stores

Protection from web and content threats

Phishing is the most common way attackers lure users to malicious websites to deliver drive-by downloads or inject code onto a device. The mobile device opens up new routes attackers can use to gain access to users’ credentials beyond corporate email.

Lookout alerts users to phishing attempts from any source on a mobile device including:

  • Phishing emails on personal or corporate accounts
  • Text messages with shortened links to malicious websites
  • Browser URL addresses that are obscured
  • Apps containing URLs that download malicious plug-ins

Protection from device-based risks

If the device is compromised with software vulnerabilities, the built-in security of the operating system can be bypassed. Lookout creates a fingerprint of each mobile device and compares it against the 100 million devices in our security platform to identify anomalies and risks, such as:

Lookout detects device level threats, including:

  • Behavioural anomalies
  • Advanced root or jailbreak
  • Out-of-date operating systems
  • Device configuration risks

Protection from network-based risks

Often taking the form of a man-in-the-middle attack, these network threats are typically executed by spoofing a Wi-Fi hotspot to intercept network traffic and decrypt sensitive data. By analysing network connections from our global sensor network, we effectively mitigate false positives while detecting high impact threats, including:

  • Man-in-the-middle attacks
  • Host certificate hijacking
  • SSLStrip attacks
  • TLS protocol downgrades
