Marble is defining a new emerging mobile
security category, mobile security management, which goes beyond
MAM and MDM with advanced features like app scanning, secure
browsing and real-time analytics.
"If you look at where the industry stands in
mobile and BYOD security, there is a stack of necessary
functionality with mobile security management at the top supported
by MAM and MDM underneath," said Marble Security Founder and CTO
mobile security research showing that one in five Internet
users has had an account hacked--one in four for young
adults--greater BYOD security is an imperative for enterprise
network security. (1)
"The hacking risks to individuals are bad
enough, but the real problem for IT teams is that these new,
tech-savvy 'millennia' users are heavy BYOD and social media users.
That 25 percent with hacked accounts are connecting to corporate
networks with their devices too, exposing their employers' networks
and data to new mobile attack vectors. MDM and MAM are necessary
but not sufficient protection from the threats," said Jevans.
Marble's MAM now enables companies to:
•Set up and manage an app store/catalog for employees and contractors•Push apps to mobile devices•Check that versions are up to date•Pull the apps from the device if required
But Marble's greatest value lies in its mobile
security management capabilities, like its secure virtual private
network (VPN), browser and its app scanning for all of the apps on
the mobile device, not just those coming from the corporate app
store. Only companies like Marble Security with dedicated
security research labs can find those apps that contain malware and
protect the end user and their organization.
"If you let people use their own devices, they
will put things on there you do not control. Only Marble scans all
of the apps on the mobile device and can block users that have
downloaded mobile malware from connecting to the network and alert
the end user to the problem," said Jevans.
