New mobile security solution with on-device technology prevents malicious malware, botnets and phishing attacks on all apps.

The latest additions to SandBlast Mobile will now prevent phishing attacks on all applications.

Check Point Software Technologies has recently announced new capabilities for its mobile threat defence solution, SandBlast Mobile. SandBlast Mobile 3.0 is claimed as the only solution in the category to offer threat prevention technology for the enterprise, allowing employees to safely conduct business using their mobile devices.

The new Sandblast Mobile 3.0 establishes a new mobile security paradigm with on-device network threat prevention. The latest additions to SandBlast Mobile will now prevent phishing attacks on all applications. The service will now also prevent browsing to malicious sites where devices may become infected. SandBlast will now also block infected devices from sending sensitive data to botnets. It will also keep infected devices from accessing corporate applications and data. Additionally, the service will mitigate threats without relying on user action or mobile management platforms

“Mobile devices are a key part of the IT ecosystem of businesses globally.  However, in most organisations, they are not protected anywhere near the level they need to be, in relation to the value of the corporate assets they store and process,” said Itai Greenberg, VP of Product Management at Check Point Software Technologies.  “Enterprises need to use consistent, comprehensive threat prevention across their mobile fleets, to stop these devices from being the weak point in their security defences.  The new capabilities for SandBlast Mobile extend our best-in-class threat prevention technology to mobile, delivering fully-integrated protection across enterprise networks, endpoints, cloud and mobile deployments.”

SandBlast Mobile is the most complete threat defence solution to prevent advanced cyber attacks. Its technology protects against threats to the OS, apps and network, scoring the industry’s highest threat catch rate without impacting performance or user experience.

In Miercom’s independent Mobile Threat Defense Industry Assessment, SandBlast Mobile achieved the highest threat catch rate of all tested vendors. Check Point has seen the attack vectors on mobile devices expand from just known malware, network and OS exploits, to now include zero-day malware, mobile crypto mining, SMS attacks and Bluetooth exploits. To address this, the company offers a complete solution to enterprise customers, part of Check Point’s Infinity security architecture. Infinity shares indicators between network appliances, PC endpoints, cloud, and mobile.
