What synergy can you expect by integrating EMM and mobile security tools?
A key takeaway from this Gartner research for enterprises that already have an EMM solution deployed is that adding a mobile security solution is the next step to strengthen their security posture. As the research states, “Mobile security tools complement an EMM by detecting malware or identifying suspicious behavior and potentially leaky applications.”
The two solutions create value that is greater than the sum of their individual parts since, as the report continues, “EMM solutions have limitations in that they are unable to detect platform and app vulnerabilities. They are also limited in their capacity to detect malware threats on their limitations in that they are unable to detect platform and app vulnerabilities. They are also limited in their capacity to detect malware threats on their
What’s Next: Moving toward holistic enterprise mobile security
Integrating MTD with your EMM solutions enables holistic security for mobile devices in the enterprise by delivering protection against the three main mobile threat vectors. As the research states, “Mobile Threat Defense solutions provide security at three levels — the device (through behavioral anomaly detection and vulnerability assessments), the app (through reputation scanning and code analysis) and the network (through monitoring network traffic and automatically disabling suspicious networks from mobile devices).
