MobileIron has announced that its FedRAMP Authorised MobileIron Cloud offering now includes MobileIron Threat Defense (MTD). This means federal agencies can build upon MobileIron Cloud with MTD for mobile threat detection and remediation.
FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides a standardised approach to security assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. The purpose of the program is to accelerate the adoption of software-as-a-service (SaaS) technologies by saving individual agencies the time and money required to do their own information assurance assessment.
“Federal agencies can now build upon MobileIron Cloud with MobileIron Threat Defense to improve their mobile security,” said Bill Harrod, federal CTO at MobileIron. “This is critical as mobile threats are reaching new levels of sophistication and impact every day. Federal agencies can block mobile threats and stop attacks by implementing a layered security strategy with MobileIron Threat Defense. With one app, federal agencies can detect and remediate both known and zero-day attacks on the mobile device, without disruption to user productivity.”
MTD offers immediate, on-device threat protection. It detects and remediates mobile threats such as device, network, app and phishing attacks, even when the device is offline. MTD also helps protect against Android threats and iOS vulnerabilities with continuous protection against mobile device threats that exploit user behavior and security gaps. In addition to protecting federal data from mobile attacks, MTD enables federal agencies to comply with regulatory requirements, reduce total cost of ownership, and drive business innovation with secure mobile devices, apps, and cloud services.
