Check Point upgrades mobile security solution ‘SandBlast Mobile 3.0’
SandBlast Mobile 3, one of the leading mobile threat defence solutions owned by Israeli firm Check Point, has been enhanced with some on-device technology that prevents malicious malware, botnets, and phishing attacks on all mobile applications.
The solution has established a benchmark in terms of new mobile security with on-device network threat prevention.
SandBlast Mobile has been upgraded with important features that now prevent phishing attacks on applications, keeps away from browsing to malicious sites where devices may become infected, and block infected devices from sending sensitive data to botnets.
Check Point's technology defends against threats to the OS, apps and network, scoring the industry’s highest threat catch rate without impacting performance or user experience.
SandBlast Mobile 3.0 allows employees to safely conduct business using their mobile devices.
Itai Greenberg, VP of Product Management at Check Point Software Technologies, said:
“Mobile devices are a key part of the IT ecosystem of businesses globally. However, in most organisations, they are not protected anywhere near the level they need to be, in relation to the value of the corporate assets they store and process.
Enterprises need to use consistent, comprehensive threat prevention across their mobile fleets, to stop these devices being the weak point in their security defences. The new capabilities for SandBlast Mobile extend our best-in-class threat prevention technology to mobile, delivering fully-integrated protection across enterprise networks, endpoints, cloud and mobile deployments.”
The SandBlast Mobile achieved the highest threat catch rate of all tested vendors in Miercom’s independent Mobile Threat Defense Industry Assessment.
As part of Check Point’s Infinity security architecture, this comprehensive solution protects from known malware, network and OS exploits, to now include zero-day malware, mobile cryptomining, SMS attacks and Bluetooth exploits.
The Check Point Infinity seamlessly shares indicators between network appliances, PC endpoints, cloud, and mobile.
