Deploying, managing and securing your mobile IT environment need not be complicated or expensive. Mobile Device Management (MDM) makes the secure confi guration of mobile devices painless and straightforward, while a mobile agent is installed on the device to provide the protection you need against today’s threats — even on employee-owned devices!
Many employees use their own devices for both personal and corporate tasks. In fact, some organizations encourage workers to choose their preferred smartphone or tablet from a retailer, and IT adds email and corporate access to the employee-owned device.
There are savings and productivity benefits, but BYOD can also open the organization to security risks. Corporate data, improperly secured and potentially co-mingled with personal items, can be easily exploited. Often these devices are also used by family members with no regard for application security. Some are even rooted or jailbroken.
Kaspersky Security for Mobile solves these problems by enabling secure configuration and deployment of smartphones and tablets using the same console as your network security. IT administrators can be confident that user devices are configured with the correct settings and can be secured in the event of loss, theft or user abuse.
Unlike other solutions, Kaspersky Lab allows administrators to use only one console to manage the security of mobile devices, physical endpoints, virtual systems, encryption and policy enforcement tools.
Administrators publish a corporate portal that contains links to approved applications. Users can be limited to only these applications.
Secures phones remotely by sending either an email or SMS containing a link to the corporate portal where users can download the profile and applications you’ve approved. Access to data won’t be granted until the user has accepted.
Ensures hardware and software integrity by enabling rooting and jailbreak detection. Other security settings include ‘camera disable’, forced password and more.
Application control allows the monitoring and control of application usage on the device including ‘Default Deny’ and ‘Default Allow’ support.
Data in motion is protected via transparent full-disk and file level data encryption which can also be applied to a container.
Administrators can remotely perform a full or selective device wipe, pinpoint the location of a missing device using GPS “Find” and receive notifi cation if a SIM card is removed or swapped.
Kaspersky Lab’s anti-malware engine features multiple layers of detection including cloud-assisted protection, and combines with a safe browser and powerful anti-spam to ensure the device is not compromised by malicious software.
In support of an employee-owned device scenario, corporate data and applications can be placed in isolated “containers”. This provides maximum security for corporate data, and optimal integrity for personal content.
In the event a device is misplaced, Remote Lock can be engaged. Corporate data within a container on the device can be secured, encrypted, remotely managed and wiped independently of personal data on the device.
