Global leader in cyber security solutions, Fortinet, has announced the launch of a new mobile security subscription service designed to protect mobile devices from cyber threats. FortiGuard Mobile Security helps enterprises in managing any unwelcome threats to mobile devices, particularly within BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) environments, including mobile application control and mobile malware protection across Android and Apple iOS systems.
This latest addition to Fortinet’s range of mobile security solutions strengthens and reinforces their commitment to helping enterprises deploy, manage and secure wireless networks. The new FortiGuard Mobile Security service, deployable with Fortinet’s industry-leading FortiGate integrated security appliances, can be purchased individually or as part of their Full Coverage Enterprise Protection subscription service and will include all services such as intrusion prevention, anti-virus, web filtering and web spam, application control and cloud-based advanced threat protection (ATP) within the FortiGuard UTM bundle.
John Maddison, VP Marketing Products at Fortinet, said: “IT infrastructure is evolving constantly with BYOD, cloud, SDN, hybrid WAN and secure WLAN, making the enterprise more flexible yet, at the same time, exposing new points of etry for the malicious attacks.” He added, “Our new mobile application control and mobile malware protection service integrated into the network, and particularly WLAN, providing enterprises globally with the visibility and control they need over mobile devices to protect their corporate assets, especially in BYOD environments.”
