Spire Solutions and Lookout partner to bolster mobile security
Lookout signs Middle East distribution agreement with Spire Solutions to tackle mobile threats
Spire Solutions has signed a partnership agreement with Lookout to address customer challenges related to mobile endpoint security. Through continuous conditional access, Lookout enables enterprises to constantly assess device health and allow employees to authenticate to corporate resources over any network.
“Mobile threat vectors are particularly dangerous, and we regularly hear news about compromised mobile applications. By partnering with Lookout, we aim to increase awareness of mobile device security in the region, and help customers achieve resilience across their endpoint infrastructure.”, commented Sapan Agarwal, deputy vice president - Product Management, at Spire Solutions.
Mobile security issues are growing in both volume and importance, even though Apple and Google constantly add security features. Thus, according to Gartner Market Guide for Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) 2018, nearly one out of five business and industry apps leaks personally identifiable information while every year, 42 million mobile malware attacks take place. Gartner predicts that “by 2020, 30% of organizations will have MTD in place, an increase from less than 10% in 2018”.
IDC MarketScape report has recognised Lookout as a Leader with the size, focus, and expertise to advance innovation in post-perimeter security, for the second year in a row.
“Securing data in the post-perimeter world requires organizations to move critical security capabilities to mobile devices so that employees have the ability to browse to any site and download any app without worrying about being tracked or being infected. As we seek to accelerate our growth in the Middle East, partnering with Spire Solutions will enable us to leverage their regional coverage and top-notch technical expertise”, said Bahaa Hudairi, regional sales Director META, at Lookout.
