Safety products: Mobile app security

Monitoring system: Pradeo, a company developing solutions for mobile app security, announced a collaboration with AirWatch®, an enterprise mobility management provider, to provide an efficient security solution to face these new challenges. Due to the booming market of mobile apps and the use of smartphones by employees, cybersecurity continues to be top of mind for many companies.

Together with AirWatch, Pradeo provides customers an innovative security solution that complements the industry-leading AirWatch by VMware Enterprise Mobility Management Suite. Pradeo analyzes all the apps running on a fleet of devices managed by AirWatch and returns a detailed security report, and can determine if a particular app is authorized or not, according to the security policy predetermined by the client company. AirWatch then activates and compliance policies are put in place to remediate security threats.

"Collaborating with solutions from Pradeo gives customers an even greater view of the security of their mobile fleet of devices,” said Erik Frieberg, vice president, End-User Computing, VMware. “Security is top of mind for our customers, and our expansive security ecosystem delivers on our commitment to provide enterprise security with consumer simplicity.”

“For Pradeo, the partnership with AirWatch is already a success and we are very proud of it,” said Stéphane Saad, co-founder, Pradeo. “Far before the official release of the collaboration of our security solution with AirWatch, we received a wide number of pre-orders and positive feedback from major players, who develop projects that cover millions of mobile devices. This illustrates that the management and security of mobile devices have become increasingly important for companies and organizations.”
