AccessData solution helps organisations deal with today’s security complexities

- Mobile threat detection and response for iOS and Android devices
- Fully integrated with the ResolutionOne Platform
INCIDENT resolution solutions specialist AccessData said it is bridging the security gap between prevention-focused mobile device management (MDM) solutions and mobile threat detection and response with its ResolutionOne Platform.
ResolutionOne integrates network, endpoint and malware analysis, threat intelligence, end-to-end e-discovery and remediation technologies into a single, scalable platform, the company said in a statement.
Citing a study it commissioned that was conducted by GigaOm, AccessData said the explosive growth of the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend provides increasingly attractive entry points through which cybercriminals are penetrating corporate networks.
The rapid growth of advanced attacks, in the form of mobile malware, data leakage and insider threats, is escalating as information security teams struggle to rapidly detect and respond to these security incidents.
Add to that the challenges of deploying threat detection and remediation capabilities across a company’s networks and endpoints – including thousands of mobile devices housing enormous amounts of sensitive data – and the cybersecurity situation seems insurmountable for many corporations.
Claiming a technology first, AccessData said its mobile device support on ResolutionOne provides comprehensive, real-time visibility, intelligence and resolution capabilities across iOS and Android devices – on or off corporate networks.
“Organisations face growing challenges with multiple niche point products that are unable to provide the complete picture on incidents of all types,” said Lee Reiber, vice president of Mobile Solutions at AccessData.
“They rely on MDM and MAM (mobile application management) solutions to handle their mobile security. This represents a false sense of security as the software is not equipped to deliver incident detection, response, and remediation.
“To address this need, we incorporated our advanced mobile forensics capabilities into the ResolutionOne Platform to extend rapid threat detection, analysis and resolution across iOS and Android devices,” he added.
The mobile endpoint monitoring feature operates in a similar fashion as the desktop version. The mobile agent is delivered to iOS and Android devices which are connected to the enterprise’s network via a MDM or MAM application catalogue.
The devices are then monitored by the ResolutionOne Platform where processes, network communications and mobile device data are captured at predefined intervals.
The data is auto-correlated with the integrated, customisable ThreatBridge engine’s threat intelligence library to identify any known threats such as malicious IP (Internet Protocol) addresses and known malware.
It also detects unknown threats by providing visibility into network communications and running processes, so anomalous activities can be identified and remediated, AccessData claimed.
