Websense released the new TRITON Mobile Security solution, a cloud-based security service for iOS devices on wireless mobile networks. It combines four key elements for effective unified mobile security: content-aware data security, industry-leading web security, malicious app protection and mobile device management (MDM).
“When an employee uses a mobile device, the corporate data that resides on or passes through that device is at great risk of loss,” said Jeff Wilson, principle security analyst for Infonetics. “Websense TRITON Mobile Security is the latest example of Websense innovation. It extends the company’s expertise in web, email, and data security solutions to handheld devices to protect corporate data.”
The solution provides protection for data-in-motion wherever employees use their devices. The data-aware defenses protect against data loss and the theft of intellectual property. This cloud-based security service, with an on-demand VPN tunnel, analyzes inbound and outbound data communications.
Administrators can roll out Websense TRITON Mobile Security by installing a profile to iOS devices and choosing the appropriate policy for company-owned or personal mobile devices to keep them secure. Within a few minutes, customers can extend their existing web security policies to mobile devices.
Integrated MDM features enable organizations to control mobile devices to keep them secure, minimize risk and maintain compliance. Users also have real-time contextual security provided by Websense ACE (Advanced Classification Engine), the technology that powers security defenses in all Websense TRITON security solutions.
