Lookout is a leading mobile cybersecurity company and an Appurity partner. They recently announced the industry’s first mobile endpoint detection and response (EDR) solution.
EDR is an industry game-changer that provides the same tools that Lookout’s security researchers use to hunt for novel threats. Now organisations can use the same tools to investigate cyberattacks themselves.
Right now, with so many employees working away from the office, businesses are increasingly reliant on mobility solutions to increase productivity. That’s why EDR is so important. It provides visibility across all your mobile endpoints.
The main challenge EDR is designed to resolve is to detect low and slow targeted cyberattacks and prevent data breaches.
Lookout have revealed that cybercriminals are developing campaigns targeting tablets, smartphones and Chromebooks as well as desktops and laptops. It’s becoming the norm for criminals to use the same infrastructure to deliver attacks on mobile and traditional endpoints simultaneously.
The big question for security professionals is: how do I prevent an incident from affecting the rest of my users and my organisation? EDR is all about providing an all-encompassing solution to protect your organisation’s information and infrastructure. Increasingly, your mobile endpoints have access to the same data as your desktops and laptops.
