AirPatrol Announces Support for AirWatch Enterprise Mobility Management Platform
|By Business Wire
|August 13, 2014 09:03 AM EDT
AirPatrol Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sysorex Global
Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: SYRX), today announced a new add-in for its
ZoneDefense® 5 mobile device security platform that will allow
organizations using the Enterprise Mobility Management suite from
VMware’s AirWatch® to automatically switch security policies of
smartphones and tablets based on the device’s owner and location.
AirPatrol’s ZoneDefense 5 for AirWatch allows systems administrators to
create “hot zones” that can change the features, apps and content
available on an AirWatch-managed device when it enters the area. The hot
zones can be as large as an entire building or as small as an office
“A mobile device is a lot more than just a handheld computer. It’s a
phone, a camera, a game console, a social tool and much more. What role
it serves is based in large part on who the user is, where they are and
when they are there,” said AirPatrol CEO Cleve Adams. “With ZoneDefense
for AirWatch, organizations can shift from the ‘one device, one policy’
model inherited from the PC and laptop era in favor of a ‘the right
policy at the right place’ paradigm much more suited to the mobile
The ability to automatically change device policies based on zone makes
it simple for organizations to manage areas that have differing security
levels, such as a building lobby versus the corporate boardroom. As a
mobile device enters a zone, a new security policy can be triggered that
prevents unauthorized activities such as file transfers, use of a camera
or recording device, or accessing certain apps. Once the device exits
the zone, the more stringent security policy is replaced with the
standard one and mobile device activities return to normal.
Beyond the ability to automatically manage device security based on
location, ZoneDefense for AirWatch also gives systems and security
personnel a more complete view of the mobile devices operating within
the organization. Capable of detecting and locating all cellular and
WiFi devices, whether managed by AirWatch or not, ZoneDefense offers
administrators the ability to identify, monitor and report on rogue
smartphones and tablets that would otherwise operate “under the radar.”
“Most people are surprised to learn just how many mobile devices are
roaming freely about their organization doing who-knows-what,” Adams
said. “With ZoneDefense for AirWatch, companies will have a handle on
all of them, both known and unknown.”
AirPatrol’s ZoneDefense for AirWatch is now available from AirPatrol and
AirPatrol authorized resellers. The company will be demonstrating
ZoneDefense at AirWatch’s Connect event in Atlanta, September 8 – 11,

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos.
In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
