Sophos sees explosive growth for mobile device management and mobile security

INDIA: Sophos’ mobile device management (MDM) solution, Sophos Mobile Control, now manages more than two million devices, marking a 100 percent increase in less than five months.

In less than two years since its inception, Sophos Mobile Control now counts more than 4,500 customers worldwide, with significant traction across North America, Europe and Asia/Pacific. Sophos secured more than 800 new MDM customers in March, 2013 alone.

These latest milestones follow the launches of two key mobile security offerings, Sophos Mobile Control 3.0 and Sophos EndUser Protection.

Offered both on-premise and as-a-service, Sophos Mobile Control 3.0 added new support for Samsung SAFE™ devices, granting tighter control over how devices are used and making BYOD policies easier to define and enforce. It also provides integration with Sophos Mobile Security, which protects Android smartphones and tablets from malicious apps.

Sophos EndUser Protection combines mobile and endpoint protection in a single solution—protecting all of the devices a user has with just one license. With EndUser Protection, an organization can protect every tablet, phone, laptop or desktop—from Windows and Macs to mobile devices like iPhones, iPads and Android devices—wherever users go.

Additionally, the company recently launched the latest version of its free Android security app, Sophos Mobile Security. Sophos Mobile Security 2.5 protects Androids from malware and now includes SPAM filter capabilities for text messages and calls. The app was recently recognized as being “AV-TEST Certified” by leading independent lab AV-TEST.
