SAN FRANCISCO, June 21, 2016 – Lookout, the global leader in securing mobility, today expanded Mobile Threat Protection with the introduction of Network Protection, an automatic on-device analysis of network connections to defend against man-in-the-middle attacks and ensure information is being securely transmitted. Unlike mobile threat solutions that overload admins with irrelevant network alerts, Lookout’s approach focuses on the risks that are the most relevant to enterprises, namely attempts to intercept, and decrypt data in transit. This minimizes false positives, enabling users to stay connected and productive on the go, while providing admins with tools to remediate network-based threats immediately. Network Protection is the latest security layer within Lookout Mobile Threat Protection, representing Lookout’s continued commitment to delivering superior mobile security to large enterprises.
