Enhanced Protection for Mobile Devices: gateprotect upgrades Complete Security suite

Hamburg, January 8th 2014 - The German IT security specialist gateprotect is now offering an upgrade for its endpoint solution. "Complete Security - Mobile Protection" provides even better protection against evolving threats, malware and malicious applications on mobile devices. New features include unified management access for controlling both mobile devices and PCs; an application level password and lockout function; a SecureWeb browsing functionality for Android browsers and Google Chrome; as well as more targeted user group management functionality.

A recent survey on mobile security shows: 83 percent of the interviewed decision-makers believe that mobile devices create a high security risk within the corporate environment.* gateprotect firmly believes that the Security threat through mobile devices will continue to become more prevalent which is why we continue to offer our customers with solutions to provide Complete Security.

"Cybercriminals are increasingly targeting employees to gain access to a company's intellectual property", says gateprotect CEO Dr. Peter Smeets. "Because it is common for there to be a lot of confidential corporate data stored on the mobile devices of Executives, businesses must supplement their security parameters with a coherent but simple BYOD protection strategy."

Unified Management for IT Administrators
gateprotect "Complete Security - Mobile Protection" is particularly easy to operate. Both the mobile devices and the PCs connected to the network may be administered quickly via one single interface.

IT administrators have the possibility to create policies that can be updated and duplicated within the console, and create user groups to facilitate the management of end users. Administrators can easily drag-and-drop users into a group, and user devices will automatically pick up the policies associated with that group.

Employees will only be able to change those settings on their mobile devices that are in line with the company policy. If the device password, lock screen timeout, or device administrator access do not meet policy requirements, alerts are sent directly to the console.

The SecureWeb™ browsing feature has been expanded as well to support Google Chrome in addition to the stock Android browser. In addition, the upgrade of "Complete Security - Mobile Protection" includes an enhanced device scanning engine for Android that detects threats in real time and speeds up scans.

Key features of Complete Security - Mobile Protection at a glance:

  • Device and group level policies for Android and iOS devices

  • Alerts sent up to management console for devices out of policy

  • Cloud scanning enhancements powered by Webroot® Intelligence Network™ (WIN™) services

  • User group management

  • Single point of control for mobile devices and PCs

  • New application level password and lockout features

  • SecureWeb browsing functionality for stock Android browser and Google Chrome

  • Increased efficacy with cloud-powered scanning

  • Lower CPU, memory, bandwidth, and battery utilization
