Lumension Launches Mobile Device Management on Endpoint Management and Security Suite

June 2, 2014



Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) June 02, 2014

Concern over risk brought by mobile devices continue to keep IT security pros up at night – 75 percent of respondents to the fifth annual State of the Endpoint study by the Ponemon Institute say it's now their top risk, an increase of 733 percent from 2010. To address growing mobile risk, Lumension®, a global leader in endpoint management and security, today announced the release of Lumension Endpoint Management and Security Suite with Mobile Device Management (MDM).

With the integration of MDM, L.E.M.S.S. enables today's enterprise to support Bring Your Own Device (B.Y.O.D.) initiatives. MDM empowers organizations to securely embrace the productivity gains of mobility through central management of mobile devices, both employee and corporate owned, in tandem with traditional endpoints.

Lumension MDM integrates numerous important mobile security features with other endpoint security solutions at low overall impact to both IT and users, including remote lock, full remote wipe, device feature control, device encryption enforcement, root/jailbreak detection, configuration management and more for Apple iOS and Google Android phones and tablets.

"As cybercriminals move from traditional malware to targeted, advanced persistent threats, the security industry must evolve its approach in how it equips IT security professionals in the fight against those threats," said C. Edward Brice, senior vice president, worldwide marketing, Lumension. "Lumension has made a number of significant enhancements to the L.E.M.S.S. platform and by integrating MDM with the other on-platform solutions customers experience improved security under a single pane of glass."

Designed to help companies quickly deploy a defense-in-depth solution strategy across a wide variety of endpoints, L.E.M.S.S. is offered as a single unified solution and delivered in two packaged offerings. L.E.M.S.S. Enterprise offers added protection against targeted attacks and includes patch management, anti-virus, application control, device control, content wizard, power management, security configuration management and mobile device management. L.E.M.S.S. is ideal for businesses that seek greater security, improved visibility and increased operational efficiencies at the endpoint. This solution includes patch management, anti-virus, device control, content wizard, and power management. Both are available as subscription and perpetual licenses.

"Our MDM beta customers continuously told us that L.E.M.S.S centralized management for endpoints, including mobile endpoints, has the advantage of lower administrative effort and cost," said Brice. "That is critical to today's already pressured IT teams."
