Symantec has released new software designed to protect sensitive business data accessible from Windows and Android mobile devices.
The updates include:
Symantec Mobile Security for Android
Mobile Security for Android is a new solution that leverages Symantec's technology that monitors and analyzes android apps available on appstores around the world. Supported by Symantec's Global Intelligence Network, Mobile Security for Android utilizes Symantec's anti-malware detection technology from Norton Mobile Security, already protecting Android devices.
New Symantec Mobile Management for Configuration Manager
With the completed integration of Odyssey Software, Symantec now offers three deployment options for mobile device management (MDM): a standalone MDM solution, an integrated MDM with Altiris IT Management Suite from Symantec and an integrated MDM for Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager. These options enable scalable, enterprise-class MDM and unified endpoint management from two of the most widely deployed management platforms.
Secure Email for Android with Symantec Mobile Management
All Symantec Mobile Management products now integrate with NitroDesk TouchDown to provide secure mobile email services, making adoption of Android devices in the enterprise that much easier. By providing a dedicated enterprise email client for Android devices, Symantec now addresses multiple security and management issues including separation of corporate and personal data.
Native Agents Further Advance Symantec Mobile Management
Symantec Mobile Management now provides native agent based enterprise management for Windows Phone 7 devices, complementing existing support for Android and iOS. With this capability, enterprises can now provide consistent configuration security and management across the most popular platforms, deploy mobile applications and content and secure the corporate data on these devices.
Nukona App Center from Symantec
Nukona App Center from Symantec now features the ability to secure apps and data on iOS devices with FIPS 140-2 certified encryption, making Symantec one of the only vendors to offer this certification today. This capability helps ready iOS devices for use in government and other regulated industries, such as the financial and healthcare sectors, helping these organizations meet compliance requirements from corporate owned to BYOD implementations. Nukona App Center provides secure application and content management for iOS and Android devices and now supports apps created with third-party app frameworks, such as Appcelerator and PhoneGap.
Symantec PGP Viewer for Android
Symantec now offers Symantec PGP Viewer for Android to provide the ability to read encrypted emails on Android devices. Available for download from the Google Play Marketplace, PGP Viewer for Android works in conjunction with PGP Universal Server from Symantec for user enrollment services and key management to help users deal with compliance and data breach concerns.
