iScan Online Announces Free Mobile Security Scanning Apps and SDK

Cloud Based Security Scanning Now Available for Android and Apple iOS Devices

iScan Online, pioneers of BYOD security scanning from the cloud to any device, anytime, anywhere, today announced an updated and enhanced suite of security scanning services, including the following:

  • The availability of iScan Online Mobile for iOS;
  • Major updates to its Android security scanning app; and
  • The availability of Software Development Kit (SDK) for organizations that wish to embed mobile security scanning into their applications.

These initiatives build on iScan Online's previous capability of scanning Android, Windows and Mac devices, which give administrators insight and confidence regarding all of the devices that have access to their organizations' networks, applications and data.

The announcement was made as the IT Nation Conference gets underway in Orlando, Fla. iScan Online has partnered with McAfee and Intel, and will be promoting free security scanning during the conference at the McAfee Intel booth #502 November 13-15th.

"Most smartphone and tablet users are unaware that their devices contain vulnerabilities, sometimes direct from the factory," said Carl Banzhof, CEO of iScan Online. "With the latest release of our mobile technology our goal is to help educate the market by providing free self service vulnerability scanning and remediation guidance."

iScan Online Mobile for iOS -- This app provides security scanning for iPhone and iPad smartphones and tablets by leveraging the power of the cloud and a native mobile app. iScan Online Mobile for iOS can provide rich detailed analysis and reporting of vulnerabilities, configuration issues and data discovery on Apple iOS devices.

iScan Online for Android -- iScan Online has enhanced this app, rated 4.8 stars by users on Google Play, to improve the user interface. It is now easier to use and provides the user with more detailed information about security scanning results and step-by-step instructions for remediating vulnerabilities discovered during the security scan.

Software Development Kit (SDK) - Organizations that wish to embed mobile security scanning into their applications now can do so using the iScan Online SDK. This offering is primarily for developers of banking and financial applications interested in adding enhanced security and protection to their apps.

"As a developer of mobile technology we are keenly aware of the risks that can be found on users mobile devices," said Andrew Levi, CTO and Founder Blue Calypso, Inc. (BCYP). "We believe that the iScan Online Mobile technology is a unique and innovative approach to helping users, companies and service providers address the growing security concerns raised by mobile devices and BYOD."

Prior to iScan Online, ensuring BYOD devices were secure had been a near impossible task. While servers and desktops are relatively static, today's organizations are comprised of transient users in many locations, using a plethora of devices and resources. These devices make up the "dark matter" of today's networks. Managing these devices, and gaining visibility for regulatory compliance such as PCI and HIPAA, are all required tasks, but difficult to accomplish. In addition, scanning for traditional vulnerabilities or for specific data, such as unencrypted credit card data (PAN) and social security numbers, has never been addressed for mobile devices.

Users can download the iScan Online mobile app for free from iTunes or the Google Play Store and scan their device for operating system and application vulnerabilities without registration. An iScan Online subscription is required for full functionality including data discovery, compliance and MDM features.

The iScan Online solution is designed to scan thousands of devices simultaneously. Results are sent securely to the cloud where iScan Online can deliver per device scan results as well as organization-wide reporting through the iScan Cloud Console. Pricing is based on a per device model which includes the iScan Cloud Console.

You're looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you're concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies. What do you do?
