Mobolize Continues Technology Partnership with Akamai to Expand Zero Trust Network Access Capabilities on Mobile Devices
The Akamai Zero Trust Network Access mobile client will be “Powered by Mobolize”
Los Altos, Calif. – June 1, 2021 – Mobolize, the leading provider of the on-device Data Management Engine that delivers security and connectivity solutions for mobile devices, today announced the continuation of its partnership with Akamai, the world’s most trusted solution for protecting and delivering digital experiences, to further extend Zero Trust capabilities to mobile devices. In addition to the mobile client in Akamai’s Enterprise Threat Protector Secure Web Gateway (SWG) solution, the future Akamai Zero Trust Network Access mobile client also will be “Powered by Mobolize.”
Zero Trust is the strict and continuously verified process that allows only authenticated and authorized users on non-compromised devices to access corporate apps and data. Mobolize’s patented Data Management Engine extends Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) policy to mobile devices through smart fine grain routing and control over all data traffic on the device. The engine is delivered as an application for iOS, Android and Chrome OS devices.
“Traditional ‘trust but verify’ strategies are no longer an option for protection against today’s targeted, advanced security threats,” said Philip Mustain, Mobolize CEO and Co-Founder. “Based on the experience with other solutions, our partners recognized the power of our mobile innovation technology to extend Zero Trust network access to the modern workforce on mobile devices.”
“We are excited to continue our partnership with Mobolize as we’ve seen the success of the mobile security solutions with Akamai’s Enterprise Threat Protector mobile client,” said John Arledge, Akamai Vice President of Product Management, Security Technology Group. “The expansion of Zero Trust security to mobile devices is the future and provides our customers fast and secure app access regardless of where the mobile users and devices are located.”
According to Forrester Research, Inc., Zero Trust is becoming the “security model of choice for enterprises and governments alike.” It can also help improve the employee experience by providing “security and productivity which are fundamental necessities for the modern enterprise.”
