The partnership between Ivanti and Lookout, Inc is to be extended in a new announcement made today which will see Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security continue to be part of the Ivanti Neurons automation platform. The combined solution, which also includes Ivanti Go and Ivanti Neurons for Modern Device Management, allows Ivanti customers to deploy a mobile strategy to secure the hybrid workforce while reducing overall risk to the organisation.
This cloud-based solution is now available as an integrated add-on to Ivanti Neurons for Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) and the new add-on is fully embedded into the current UEM client, allowing customers to activate the add-on easily and seamlessly without creating friction for their end users.
This latest announcement comes after Ivanti and Lookout recently joined forces to help organisations accelerate cloud adoption and mature their Zero Trust security posture in the “Everywhere Workplace.” The joint solution – which includes Ivanti Neurons for Zero Trust Access (ZTA), Lookout Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) and Lookout Secure Web Gateway (SWG) – helps customers achieve complete threat prevention and data security both on-premises and in the cloud, inside and outside the network, while following Zero Trust Access security principles.
The two companies are expanding their strategic partnership to now include Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security, powered by the Lookout Cloud Security Platform, which provides advanced mobile security for Android, iOS and Chrome OS devices. The solution embeds Lookout functionality into the Ivanti Go app, consolidating endpoint management and security functions for simple and seamless deployment and administration. Management functions such as locating lost devices, remotely wiping data and applying access control policies now sit alongside security that protects corporate data and credentials from compromise, resulting from mobile phishing attacks, device-level exploits, application malware and network threats.
Together, the joint Ivanti/Lookout solution enables companies to proactively protect all devices – PCs, mobile devices and cloud workloads – from vulnerabilities and attacks. One of the key features of the solution includes protection from web-based and sophisticated attacks that are typically unmonitored and unprotected by traditional solutions.
Key benefits outlines from the Ivanti+Lookout partnership include:
- Enhanced detection and mitigation of cyber threats targeting mobile devices
- More insight and control into mobile devices to meet privacy and compliance requirements
- Simplified cloud adoption with secure access to SaaS apps from mobile devices
- The ability to allow the hybrid workforce to work securely from any mobile device
“We are thrilled to partner with Lookout to provide more options for our customers as they secure an increasingly mobile workforce,” said Srinivas Mukkamala, chief product officer at Ivanti. “With Ivanti Neurons for MTD, machine learning algorithms provide immediate and ongoing visibility into malicious threats across all protected devices. The combination of unified endpoint management and mobile threat defense enables organisations to proactively manage and secure mobile devices against the broadest array of attacks and defend against web-based and sophisticated attacks.”
“Our partnership with Ivanti continues to go from strength to strength – we couldn’t be prouder of our collective commitment to help customers simplify their cloud adoption and secure their hybrid workforce from anywhere, at any time, from any device,” said Jim Dolce, Lookout CEO. “Regardless of an organisation’s access or hosting method, our joint solution addresses the challenges and realities of data protection today, ensuring that CISOs and CIOs have the most seamless, robust solution for securing their data, regardless of where it flows and where it resides.”
