MAPLE LAWN, Md.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Location-based mobile device security developer AirPatrol Corporation, a
wholly-owned subsidiary of Sysorex Global Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ:SYRX),
today announced it's joined Good Technology™’s partner ecosystem to
provide organisations with the ability to automatically change security
policies on mobile devices based on contextual inputs such as the
device’s location and owner. AirPatrol’s ZoneDefense for Good allows
systems administrators to create “hot zones” that can change the
features, apps and content available on a Good-enabled device when it
enters that zone. Hot zones can be as large as an entire building or as
small as an office cubicle.
“This collaboration, coupling AirPatrol’s capabilities with Good’s
industry-leading security framework, marks the beginning of a new era in
device security,” said AirPatrol CEO Cleve Adams. “With ZoneDefense for
Good, organisations can move away from the ‘one device, one policy’
model in favour of a ‘the right policy at the right place’ paradigm.”
The ability to automatically change device policies based on zone is
particularly useful for organisations with R&D labs, boardrooms and
sensitive areas with higher levels of security. As a mobile device
enters one of these zones a new security policy can be triggered that
prevents unauthorised activities such as file transfers, use of a camera
or recording device. Accessing certain apps. Once the device exits
the zone the more stringent security policy is replaced with the
standard one and mobile device activities return to normal.
“Our customers are continually looking for ways to insure their
highly-sensitive data is protected,” said Matt Sturges, vice president
of the Good Dynamics ecosystem at Good Technology. “ZoneDefense for Good
offers another line of defence for organisations seeking more advanced
mobile security and device detection capabilities.”
Beyond the ability to automatically manage device security based on
location, ZoneDefense for Good also gives systems and security personnel
a more complete view of the mobile devices operating within the
organisation. Capable of detecting and locating any cellular or Wifi
devices, whether managed by Good or not, ZoneDefense offers
administrators the ability to identify, monitor and report on rogue
devices that'd otherwise operate “under the radar.”
“Most people are surprised to learn just how many mobile devices are
roaming freely about their organisation doing who-knows-what,” Adams
continued. “With ZoneDefense for Good, companies will have a handle on
all of them, both known and unknown.”
ZoneDefense for Good will be available in the second quarter of 2014.
