Cloud Distribution partners with Lookout to enable Post-Perimeter Security
As security issues continue to occur outside of the corporate network, Cloud Distribution’s new partnership with Lookout brings a huge partner opportunity to secure the modern mobile workforce.
Reading, UK – 20th February 2019 – The “Cloud First” Next-generation value added distributor (VAD) Cloud Distribution, specialists in Cyber Security, Networking and Data Protection Solutions has partnered with Lookout, the leader in securing the post-perimeter world, to provide end-point protection for the Mobile First Enterprise.
With the digital world becoming increasingly perimeter-less, and workforces going mobile, traditional office spaces no longer exist. Long gone are the days of working in one office, on one computer. Now, employees work from anywhere and access sensitive corporate data on multiple devices and on multiple networks. A moving asset is harder to protect and the growth in mobile and remote working has now made protecting devices and data harder to achieve.
Reseller partners now need to work with their customers on a complete Mobile First Solution from UEM to MFA, to a full robust mobile Security.
Featured in Forbes Cloud 100 top companies for 2018, Lookout enables post-perimeter security by monitoring risk at the endpoint, including phishing threats, to provide continuous conditional access to corporate resources. This happens only when there is an acceptable level of risk, and the device is in compliance with policy. Powered by the largest dataset of mobile code in existence, the Lookout Security Cloud provides visibility into the entire spectrum of mobile risk.
Lookout has partnered with major MDMs (including BlackBerry, one of Cloud’s Mobile Security Vendors) to ensure the protection of data on mobile devices allowing users to create security policies and provide comprehensive risk management.
Jamie Andrews, EMEA Partner Director, Lookout, commented, “Today, many organisations are now embracing the use of smartphones and tablets to increase productivity in the workplace, and as more sensitive data goes mobile, organisation’s security policies must extend to all endpoint devices. With Cloud Distributions expertise in the cybersecurity market, we are excited to partner with them to enable post-perimeter security for customers. Their dynamic and proactive approach is perfectly aligned to support Lookout as we grow over the next few years.”
Adam Davison, Sales & Marketing Director for Cloud Distribution commented: “As employees continuously operate outside of the corporate network, we acknowledged the challenge that this poses to organisations and saw the great opportunity to provide a robust solution that not only helps protect end-points but helps to reduce the risk that often comes with mobility. Lookout are a perfect fit to our next-generation cybersecurity portfolio, in particular as it integrates seamlessly into BlackBerry’s Enterprise UEM, fulfilling the demand from our BlackBerry partners. Lookout is a great addition to our ever-growing Mobile Security Stack that provides solutions like UEM, MFA, 2FA, secure work spaces, and crisis management.”
