Mobile Device Enablement
Mobile computing is one of the most disruptive forces in information technology. It is revolutionizing how and where employees work, and the tools that they use to perform their jobs. Mobile devices are not just ways to access existing applications such as corporate email, but the platform for opening up entirely new ways of doing business.
Organizations must take steps to manage the risks that mobile devices face. In order to fully realize all of mobility’s benefits and safely enable mobile devices, enterprises must:
Protect the Device
Protect the mobile device from exploits and malware. Protecting the device also plays an important role for protecting the data as well, because data is not safe on a compromised device.
Control the Data
Control access to data and control the movement of data between applications. Establish policies that define who can access sensitive applications, and the particular devices that can be used.
n-Telliguard GlobalProtect, powered by Palo Alto Networks, safely enables mobile devices for business use by providing a unique solution to manage the device, protect the device and control the data. It blends together the necessary technology and intelligence to provide a comprehensive solution for mobile security, enabling the organization to stop mobile threats, enforce security policies, and protect networks from compromised and non-compliant mobile devices.
GlobalProtect has two primary components:
- GlobalProtect Gateway: Delivers mobile threat prevention and policy enforcement based on apps, users, content, device and device state. Extends a VPN tunnel to mobile devices with GlobalProtect App. Integrates with n-Telliguard Advanced Persistent Threat Prevention for preventing new malware.
- GlobalProtect App: Enables device management, provides device state information, and establishes secure connectivity. Connects to the GlobalProtect Gateway to access applications and data in accordance to policy. Exchanges device configuration and device state with the GlobalProtect Mobile Security Manager.
