Enhanced enterprise security available through new AirWatch & Intel alliance
As the EMM sector evolves, AirWatch continues to expand its offerings and improve its services through acquisitions and collaborations. This month, VMware announced an expansion of its collaboration with Intel Security to include joint solutions for customers using the AirWatch EMM solution. The two companies have partnered on two initiatives to enable technology integrations that will help enterprises meet todayâ€™s complex mobile security challenges more effectively and efficiently. Below is a summary of the partnership from AirWatchâ€™s blog January 5.
The complex mobile threat defense lifecycle is about to get a lot shorter, thanks to a new partnershipÂ announced todayÂ between AirWatch and Intel Security. By entering into each otherâ€™s security programsâ€”the Intel Security Innovation Allianceâ„˘ and the AirWatch Mobile Security Alliance (MSA)â€”mutual customers have the ability to respond to security threats faster and with more comprehensive intelligence.
Through the McAfeeÂ® Data Exchange Layer, companies can now access both AirWatch and Intel Security mobility data so they can take swift action to protect data and better prevent future attacks. Now, mobile data can freely flow across devices, operating systems, networks and clouds, shining a light on â€śmobile blind spotsâ€ť and eliminating places threats can hide. The advanced, joint security capabilities also help businesses save money and help them maximize the ROI of existing security investments.
As organizations increasingly migrate to cloud-based solutions and take up more mobile initiatives, new security threats will continue to arise and evolve. In 2014 alone, 1,023,108,267 records were breached, 1-in-5 Android users experienced a mobile threat and cybercrimes cost industries millions of dollars, according to AirWatch infographicÂ The Haunting Reality of Mobile Security.
The AirWatch-Intel alliance speeds up response time to mobile threats and simplifies security defense by bridging the gap in intelligence across applications. The result is a complete mobile security solution that enables businesses to better control assets across their mobile fleet, Noah Wasmer said in a press release today.
