Mobile Industry Eye: Mobolize expands Zero Trust Network on mobile devices
Mobolize, a company that provides on-device security and connectivity solutions, is continuing its partnership with Akamai, 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 grained routing and control over all data traffic on the device. The engine is delivered as an application for iOS, Android and Chrome OS devices.
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.”
“Traditional ‘trust but verify’ strategies are no longer an option for protection against today’s targeted, advanced security threats. 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.” &mdash Philip Mustain, CEO, Mobolize
