Lookout Announces the Industry’s Only Endpoint to Cloud Security Platform
The Lookout Cloud Security Platform consolidates endpoint security with cloud security, mitigating risk and providing a unified threat response across any mobile endpoint, app or data
Lookout, Inc., the endpoint to cloud security company, announced increased functionality and feature enhancements to its award-winning Lookout Cloud Security Platform – the industry’s only endpoint to cloud security solution. The cloud-native platform now incorporates a unified policy framework for management and enforcement across all mobile devices, in addition to cloud, internet and private apps. New platform enhancements also include a unified agent and a single control plane for both mobile and cloud security services, delivering a cost-effective, simplified management experience for IT and security leaders.
According to a recent Gartner survey, 60% of knowledge workers are remote. In addition, a report released by Zippia highlights that 75% of employees use their personal cell phones for work.As organizations continue to enable their employees to work remotely, either 100% of the time or in a hybrid model, the use of mobile devices to access corporate applications, regardless of user or location, is on the rise. Workers based outside of the traditional perimeter of the data center who are accessing apps that are in the cloud, and using devices not managed by corporate IT, accelerates the need for a security solution designed for the flexible workforce that “follows” and protects corporate data wherever it flows or resides.
“Point solutions result in management chaos, security gaps and poor end user experience which affects productivity for the hybrid workforce,” said Chris Rodriquez, research director, IDC. “The Lookout Cloud Security Platform addresses these issues, creating a unified solution that not only delivers a comprehensive security approach from endpoint to cloud, but provides peace of mind for IT and security leaders.”
The Lookout Cloud Security Platform converges security service edge (SSE) and endpoint security to protect users and data wherever they reside. It continuously monitors the risk posture of users and devices to provide dynamic and granular zero trust access based on the sensitivity level of apps and data, enabling organizations to protect its workers, their devices, applications and data from unauthorized access as well as from modern day internet based threats. The expanded platform provides customers the ability to leverage the threat intelligence from mobile endpoints to make more informed decisions for cloud security services.
“Digital transformation and the significant adoption of the cloud have accelerated remote work and the use of mobile and unmanaged devices, which in turn exposes organizations to new security gaps that are ripe for exploitation from bad actors,” said Jim Dolce, Lookout CEO. “Lookout’s mission is to secure and empower the digital future where mobility and cloud are essential to all that we do for work and play; our endpoint to cloud security platform ensures that your data is protected – regardless of device, user or location.”
