Check Point has announced Mobile Threat Prevention, the only mobile security solution that detects threats on the device at application and in-network levels, and allows immediate detection and removal of mobile threats, enabling users to stay securely connected without compromise.

Mobile Threat Prevention delivers the most complete platform for stopping mobile threats on iOS and Android, and delivers real-time threat intelligence and visibility for integration into existing security and mobility infrastructures. It has the industry’s highest mobile threat catch rate, preventing compromised devices from accessing organisations’ networks, mitigating the risks of BYOD and protecting employees and corporate assets from threats.

It is able to detect threats such as the Certifi-gate vulnerability which affects hundreds of millions of Android devices worldwide, malicious apps, man-in-the-middle attacks and more.

Mobile devices increasingly represent one of the biggest threats to businesses. According to Check Point’s 2015 Security Report, in an organisation with more than 2,000 mobile devices on its network, there is a 50% chance that there will be at least 6 infected or targeted devices on their network. Most organisations are unprepared to deal with the threats that these devices present to their networks because of a lack of tools that provide the right visibility and actionable intelligence.

Key features of Check Point Mobile Threat Prevention include:

• Comprehensive advanced mobile threat protection including malicious application detection, network threat detection, and OS threat detection. Dynamic threat response prevents compromised devices from accessing company networks, and allows setting of adaptive policy controls for mitigation and elimination of threats on the device.

• Full mobile threat visibility and intelligence allows security and mobility teams to understand the quantity and types of mobile threats that could impact their business. Real-time threat intelligence is pushed to Check Point SmartEvent and Check Point ThreatCloud, as well as other security management or incident response systems for broader intelligence and monitoring of security events and for correlation with attacks on internal networks.

• Seamless deployment and adoption: Check Point Mobile Threat Prevention integrates with an organisation’s Mobile Device Management (MDM) or Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution to make delivering advanced security for mobile devices effortless. Users continue to have a transparent user experience that maintains privacy and device performance. When a threat is found, users can quickly and easily remove the threat to stay protected.

• Cloud-based dashboard makes managing supported devices and controlling mobile threats fast and easy, and the solution is highly scalable, enabling mobile security to be managed within a broader security infrastructure.

“Mobile devices are entering the enterprise at a faster rate than ever before, yet most organisations have failed to protect them or their users,” said Dorit Dor, vice president, products, Check Point Software Technologies. “Providing protection and preventing data leakage in a way that BYOD users easily accept is critical for success. With Check Point Mobile Threat Prevention, we’re not only providing enterprises with the most complete mobile security solution for stopping mobile threats on iOS and Android, but also delivering real-time threat intelligence to better understand their overall security posture”
