Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security
Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security is a proven solution that was first introduced in 2015. It’s powered by the Lookout Security Graph, which analyzes telemetry data from nearly 200 million devices and 140 million apps, and continuously ingests and analyzes millions of URLs every day. By leveraging machine intelligence, Lookout secures customers against phishing, app, device and network threats in a manner that respects user privacy. The use of machine learning on data in the Lookout Security Graph enables Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security to automatically detect threats even if they have never been seen before.
Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security offers
- Zero Trust access to corporate data from any iOS, Android or ChromeOS device.
- Continuous protection against phishing attacks across all apps that make outbound network requests including social media apps, messaging apps, SMS, work and personal email.
- Custom application of policies based on an organization’s risk tolerance ensures devices remain compliant with internal and external mandates. If a device exceeds the acceptable risk level, Lookout logs the employee out of corporate resources to protect data, sends remediation instructions to the employee, and reports the issue in the Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security console.
In March, Lookout expanded into the emerging Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) market with the acquisition of CipherCloud. The combined strength of Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security with the CipherCloud SASE technologies creates a unique market opportunity for an all-encompassing, integrated endpoint-to-cloud security solution.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by the SC Awards in this way,” said David Richardson, Vice President of Product, Lookout. “We have observed a 265 percent increase in enterprise mobile phishing threats and a 423 percent increase in enterprise mobile app vulnerabilities between 2019 and 2020. In today’s remote-work environment, enterprise security is required for all endpoints, including those running iOS, Android and ChromeOS. Our mission at Lookout is to secure and empower your digital future in a privacy-focused world where these endpoints are essential to all we do for work and play." “Distinct challenges that emerged during the last year resulted in a diverse range of demands from the customer community. A pandemic drove employees home en masse; supply chain attacks left government agencies and businesses reeling; cybercriminals and enemy nation states banked on security gaps during unprecedented times, targeting home networks, health care organizations, and retailers, among many other organizations,” said Jill Aitoro, editor in chief of SC Media. “Winners of our Trust Awards demonstrated remarkable resiliency, adapting to meet evolving requirements of customers.”For more information and a detailed list of categories, finalists and winners, please visit https://scawardsus.com/.
