SandBlast Mobile keeps corporate data safe by securing employees’ mobile devices across all attack vectors, such as apps networks and OS. Designed to reduce admins’ overhead and increase user adoption, Sandblast mobile fits into existing mobile environments, deploys and scales quickly, and protects devices without impacting user experience nor privacy.

“We are honoured to be recognised as a leader by the IDC MarketScape for the third consecutive year,” said Itai Greenberg, VP of Product Management at Check Point Software Technologies. “As we rely more on our personal mobile devices to stay connected, protecting work-from-home (WFH) employees has become a top priority for us. With real-time threat intelligence and visibility into mobile threats, Check Point’s SandBlast Mobile, part of Check Point’s Infinity architecture, provides unmatched security for remote employees, imperative with COVID-19.”

Mobile security has become a top concern for every company in these challenging times. As workforces become remote, employees are increasingly accessing corporate assets from their smartphones, opening up new attack surfaces for sophisticated cyber-attacks. Over the past few months, researchers at Check Point have been observing a rise in the number of mobile-related attacks as well as entirely new attack methods such as sophisticated mobile ransomware, and Mobile Device Management (MDM) getting weaponised to attack organisations. 

Mobile Threat Management (MTM) technology enables organisations to protect, detect, analyse, and remediate mobile device–based threats. IDC MarketPlace provides an assessment of ten different MTM software vendors based on an in-depth study. It analyses and rates the vendors across a broad range of capability and strategy-focused criteria, considering both quantitative and qualitative characteristics. 

“As the threat landscape continues to evolve, enterprises need to adopt MTM technology that can seamlessly protect unmanaged devices from advance cyber threats,” said Phil Hochmuth, Program Vice President for Enterprise Mobility at IDC. “Check Point continues to be a leader in an MTM solution that organisations can seamlessly adopt and scale without impacting user experience or privacy. SandBlast Mobile offers a strong set of third-party and portfolio integration capabilities, as well as full support in multiple deployment scenarios for both BYOD and managed devices.”
