Mobile security specialists, Lookout Inc. has announced it now has an expanded partnership with Google Cloud to provide endpoint-to-cloud security to organisations around the world. The new partnership will see Lookout deliver BeyondCorp Alliance product integrations and debuted its Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security solution on Google Cloud Marketplace. Lookout will reportedly bring additional choice of security capabilities for customers on Google Workspace, helping them mitigate the risk of endpoints compromising corporate data.
In early 2019, Lookout joined the BeyondCorp Alliance, a group of Google Cloud partners that share its Zero Trust vision. Lookout delivers essential requirements of the BeyondCorp security model, including device inventory, state and security posture. These are essential to making context-aware Zero Trust access decisions.
The customer benefits include The Lookout BeyondCorp Alliance Integration with Google Workspace and Google Cloud BeyondCorp Enterprise Solution to Deliver Zero Trust Security From Endpoint to Cloud.
For an organization to fully protect its data, it must assume that no endpoint is trustworthy until its security posture is verified. Failing to verify and continuously assess an endpoint’s security posture can lead to corporate data leaks and breaches.
“Our strategic partnership with Google Cloud will deliver industry-leading endpoint-to-cloud security,” said David Richardson, Vice President of Product, Lookout. “Enabling productivity from any endpoint in any location is critical in today’s remote-work environment. We are proud to deliver on the BeyondCorp mission to accelerate and simplify the adoption of a Zero Trust model that enables organizations to stay secure, agile and productive.”
“We’re committed to providing customers with the technology, support, and partner solutions they need to ensure they have choice when it comes to security,” said Manvinder Singh, Director of Technology Partnerships at Google Cloud. “We’re delighted that Lookout will expand its integrations with Google Cloud and make its Mobile Endpoint Security solution available on Google Cloud Marketplace, bringing customers additional choice and security capabilities as they expand their cloud footprints.”
The Lookout and Google relationship began in 2008 when Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security became available on the Google Play store. In 2019, Lookout became a member of the Google App Defense Alliance to protect users from potentially harmful applications by stopping them before they ever make it onto the Google Play Store.
