Lookout data reveals that U.S. government organizations are increasingly targeted by credential stealing mobile attacks and exposed to hundreds of vulnerabilities from outdated operating systems and risky apps.
Whether your agency is tasked with defense or providing telehealth, mobile devices are now an essential part of your mission’s success. With a tablet, smartphone or Chromebook in hand, employees can stay productive from wherever they are. These devices are also demanded by your workforce, as the new generation of recruits are accustomed to getting work done on them and the added flexibility.
While mobile devices provide added productivity, it exposes your agency to new risks. Your perimeter-based security is now obsolete as workers telework or are out in the field. This means cybercriminals have new points of access to your data and your employee’s private information.
To fill that security gap, your agencies make sure your mobile devices are managed, but that doesn’t provide real-time visibility into threats. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) recommends Zero Trust to secure your infrastructure. But that doesn’t work without visibility and access control for all your endpoints, including mobile devices.
Lookout modern endpoint security continuously monitors the risk profile of your smartphone, table and Chromebook. Through its Continuous Conditional Access API, Lookout can signal changes in the risk profile to avoid putting sensitive data at risk.
Continuous Conditional Access is a critical component to achieving Zero Trust. Since agency employees are increasingly using approved personal mobile devices, adopting access controls in real time to mitigate risk ensures the success of your mission. In addition, mobile devices provided by the agency will run personal apps that may introduce unforeseen risks that must be mitigated in real time.
