Microsoft and Lookout have partnered to enable organizations to securely embrace smartphones and tablets in the workplace. The integration combines Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security with Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) allowing organizations to extend flexible options to all types of mobile employees. Lookout provides visibility into phishing, app, network, and device-based risks, and through our deep integration with Microsoft EMS, organizations can use that risk data to enforce conditional access on mobile devices.
Through its partnership with Microsoft, Lookout has pioneered several important mobile security integrations:
Microsoft Office 365 apps are widely used on personal devices in many organizations. Mobile users are constantly accessing enterprise data using Outlook, Teams, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Lookout Continuous Conditional Access monitors device health, assigns a risk-level, and passes this information to Intune for policy consideration. Enriched with Lookout mobile threat intelligence, Intune MAM policies protect data within Intune-protected apps.
Microsoft Intune Mobile Application Management for unmanaged devices with Lookout Continuous Conditional Access enables organizations to dynamically protect corporate data used in Microsoft Intune protected apps on iOS and Android without the need to manage the device.
By applying MAM policies to Intune protected apps, organizations can restrict actions such as copying and pasting corporate data to personal apps as well as enforcing data encryption.
With the Microsoft EMS and Lookout integration, Lookout can inform Intune of device risks such as malicious applications, OS vulnerabilities, network attacks, phishing attempts or even applications that violate industry privacy policies. These alerts are integrated into the Intune management console and can be used to inform conditional access policies that prevent risky devices from accessing corporate resources until the compliance violation is remediated.
This integration allows Microsoft customers to detect, view, investigate, and respond to advanced cyberattacks and data breaches on iOS and Android mobile devices within the WDATP Management Console.
“The integration between Lookout and Microsoft EMS helps ensure that, despite this increased risk, any enterprise can benefit from mobile productivity with the assurance that their corporate assets are better protected.”
