Mojave Networks unveils offering to protect mobile devices

Mojave Networks announced the availability of its cloud-based, enterprise-grade offerings to protect mobile devices starting at the network level. Using this approach, enterprises have visibility into their mobile devices, allowing them to secure sensitive data, evaluate mobile applications and block advanced threats.

“As mobile threats continue to grow in commonality and sophistication, enterprises must re-evaluate how they combat mobile threats,” said David Monahan, Research Director, Enterprise Management Associates. “Looking beyond traditional MDM and antivirus solutions, by looking more holistically at the device, the applications and their threats is key to gaining full visibility into devices on an organization’s network. It’s great to see companies like Mojave Networks launch to market with innovative approaches to solving this ever-evolving problem.”

Key features of Mojave Networks include:

Web and network security: Analyzes data from the device, apps and network to identify web malware, malicious apps, phishing attempts and advanced persistent threats (APTs).

Data Loss Prevention: Scans content (including SSL) for sensitive information using robust data loss prevention (DLP) tools. Helps organizations abide by regulations and stay in compliance.

Mobile application security and control: Allows IT administrators to whitelist and blacklist application access from the device and network. Offers full visibility into what applications are running on the network to assess usage patterns, anomalies, and identify potential risks or malicious threats.

BYOD and privacy: Provides granular settings to give end users the privacy they require while protecting company data. Privacy settings are fully transparent to the end users.

Reporting and analytics: Features more than 30 customizable dashboards. Reports include information on bandwidth consumed, Android malware, phishing attempts, web malware and potential data leakages.

The company has closed a $5 million round of funding led by Bessemer Venture Partners (BVP) with participation from Sequoia Capital. They already brought on team members from other security leaders including Symantec, McAfee, Palo Alto Networks and Lookout.
