Lookout Mobile Security today introduced a new security solution aimed at helping business users and IT Managers. Called Lookout for Business, it’s designed to address malware, data loss, remote location, and other problems in the BYOD space. Not only does the app provide the same security and peace of mind that comes with the consumer version, it’s also something that the IT guy will love.
“Lookout’s expansion into business comes at a critical time, and the security stakes are higher than ever,” says John Hering, CEO of Lookout. “Businesses approach us every day to find out how they can get Lookout for their employees, and we look forward to providing security that we know businesses require.”
Lookout for Business includes the following features:
- Comprehensive mobile security including protection against malware, web-based threats, and data loss.
- A simple way for IT Managers to manage devices including the ability to remotely locate, lock, and wipe devices.
- A cloud-based console that provides visibility and insight into the security and management of devices.
- Employee-facing features that allow users to find and secure their phone.
