Cloud Computing Magazine: Google Cloud Picks Mobolize for Zero-Trust Device Security
Today, mobile and smart devices are plentiful, and are often used interchangeably to complete tasks in the office and remotely. While beneficial for productivity, security is a major question mark, and business leaders are taking note.
This week, Google (News – Alert) Cloud selected security and connectivity solutions developer Mobolize to bring zero trust security to enterprise mobile applications. Google Cloud intends to integrate Mobolize’s Data Management Engine into BeyondCorp Enterprise (Google’s own zero-trust solution) to enable secure access to essential applications from any device.
“Google Cloud recognized that delivering a high-performance zero trust security solution to the wide range of mobile devices used by employees today is a complex job that requires deep mobile expertise,” said Philip Mustain, Mobolize CEO. “With more than a decade of focusing on computer and mobile technology, Mobolize is well positioned to enable zero trust security from mobile devices for Google Cloud.”
The Data Management Engine developed by Mobolize is a useful IT security resource, offering intelligent data traffic management with the support of SmartVPN®. By integrating this support, employees can work from any location with full assurance devices won’t be compromised by unauthorized users.
“Google Cloud understands that a hybrid workplace is here to stay and enabling zero trust access regardless of location and device is an imperative for all enterprises,” said Tim Knudsen, Director of Zero Trust Products at Google Cloud. “Integrating with Mobolize’s Data Management Engine will make this easy and enable us to give the enterprise flexible, seamlessly integrated access options depending on the application use case.”
