Mobile devices are the de facto standard in business today, storing and providing access to critical business information. But they also introduce an additional threat vector to enterprises, so they must be protected. The Miercom MTD Industry Assessment measured the ability to detect modern hacking techniques targeting both Android and iOS-based mobile devices.
“Check Point SandBlast Mobile performed the best overall in the Miercom Industry Assessment of Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) products,” said Rob Smithers, Miercom CEO. “SandBlast Mobile undeniably proved its effectiveness in the enterprise against threats borne via company mobile devices and BYOD vector threats.”
“We saw in a recent survey conducted by Dimensional Research that 94 percent of cyber security professionals expect the frequency of mobile attacks to increase,” said Michael Shaulov, head of mobile and cloud products at Check Point. “The Miercom industry assessment demonstrates that SandBlast Mobile detects and blocks the most sophisticated hacks better than all our competitors, and provides the protection that every mobile enterprise requires.”
