Effective protection against cyberattacks

Mobile devices are a lucrative target for hackers: they provide access to sensitive data, which can cause considerable financial damage if it gets into the wrong hands, and such devices are comparatively easy to hack. As has always been the case, far too many businesses take inadequate security precautions, even though the quality of attacks and the number of access points are steadily rising. Hence why the number of cyberattacks is on the up. The risk looks set to continue to rise in the future, not least because mobile devices are being used more and more in the digital workplace and now represent an integral part of work processes. If a device is attacked, the integral security mechanism offered by the operating system can be bypassed and a great deal of damage caused in the process. This is precisely why it is crucial that you provide effective protection for mobile devices used in your business.

Intelligent threat recognition

Lookout constantly monitors the system status, identity, and background of your devices and is able to identify anomalies and risks. This solution is based on information built up from 170 million mobile devices, which enables it to accurately recognize and defend against known and unknown threats, risky device configurations, and weak spots as soon as they arise.

Protection from phishing attacks

Phishing attacks are one of the greatest dangers for mobile devices. In such attacks, the perpetrators send an e-mail or message to the user in an attempt to get them to click on a malicious link. This then either causes malware to be installed on the user’s computer, or leads to a seemingly legitimate, but fraudulent landing page from which sensitive user data can be harvested. Phishing attacks are becoming increasingly professional, which makes them very difficult to detect. Lookout can protect your employees from phishing attacks by monitoring all outgoing links from a device and blocking access to doctored links. In other words, Lookout offers real-time protection and prevents attacks on user data, as well as preventing malware from being installed on your devices.

Customer data security

Lookout offers you a Software Development Kit (SDK) so that you can add an additional layer of security to your own apps. Once an app has this extra security layer, it can no longer be used if a risk is detected on the customer’s device. This allows you to protect your customers’ data proactively, even if the user in question doesn’t have security software on their mobile device. This kind of protection is a valuable asset, especially for apps used to transfer sensitive data.
