Lookout to offer Microsoft Windows Defender ATP customers a comprehensive mobile security integration
Today, we are excited to announce the upcoming integration of Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security with Microsoft's Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (WDATP).
The growing adoption of mobile in the enterprise has allowed for increased flexibility and productivity. However, due to this shift, mobile devices have rapidly become ground zero for a wide spectrum of risks. To secure their mobile fleets and protect their sensitive information, organizations need a comprehensive solution that seamlessly integrates with their existing infrastructure.
With this new integration, Microsoft customers will gain comprehensive visibility and protection across the entire spectrum of mobile risk, specifically for threats to the app, device, network and web & content vectors. Now, WDATP users can leverage this integration across employee iOS and Android devices, and manage protecting their mobile fleet from within the WDATP Management Console.
"Enterprises must be confident that their data is secure while employees are working from any device, on any network, from anywhere in the world " said Moti Gindi, General Manager - Windows Cyber Defense, Microsoft. "The integration between Lookout's mobile threat defense and Microsoft's Window Defender Advanced Threat Protection service will provide an unprecedented level of visibility and response capability across the different device types enterprise customers must secure."
How the integration works
When Lookout is deployed in an enterprise environment along with WDATP, a customer's WDATP Windows device view is extended to include mobile device threats provided by Lookout. Mobile threat information will be integrated into the WDATP operator and analytics dashboards, as well as the "alerts" and "machine" screens, for a single pane of glass experience for security professionals.
Lookout is working closely with Microsoft to ensure the integration of Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security with Windows Defender ATP is simple and easy to implement with only a few clicks. There are no requirements for any additional infrastructure, and once the integration is set, new events from on iOS and Android devices will start surfacing into the Windows Defender ATP console.
The new integration simply requires an organization to have WDATP and Lookout deployed, and will be generally available by early 2018. If you are interested in an early preview of this integration, fill out the form here.
