Security isn’t usually the first thing on an employee’s mind when bringing personal mobile devices to work
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) October 23, 2013
CompliancePoint, an information security consulting and services provider, announces a strategic partnership with iScan Online, Inc., a provider of security scanning solutions for addressing the security assessment of mobile devices and remote workers. This partnership will help expand the market presence of iScan Online’s innovative, cloud-based Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) security scanning solutions within North America. In addition, the partnership enables CompliancePoint to expand its current Vulnerability Assessment services to include mobile and BYOD devices.
“Security isn’t usually the first thing on an employee’s mind when bringing personal mobile devices to work,” explains Billy Austin, President at iScan Online. “BYOD users want an easy way to access information. Unfortunately, this presents risk to any organization since there may be little or no method of identifying the security posture of the device. Our technology automatically scans mobile devices as they access an organization’s network and applications for both vulnerabilities and unprotected data such as credit card information.”
The iScan Online technology allows companies to scan anyone, anytime and anywhere for non-compliant credit card data (PCI) or personally identifiable information (PII) as well as operating system or configuration vulnerabilities, using an Internet connection or a downloadable application that can integrate with popular Remote Monitoring and Management solutions.
To date, iScan Online is the first to perform Vulnerability, PCI and Data Discovery scanning on mobile devices, servers and desktops without installing complex software or the need for hardware. iScan Online currently supports the scanning of Microsoft Windows, Apple OS X, Apple iOS and Android mobile devices.
“We are excited about the opportunities that the partnership with iScan Online offers to our customer base. Mobile and BYOD devices are a key potential weakness in protecting organizations from a security breach,” says Jerry Wyble, Vice President and Practice Manager for CompliancePoint’s Information Security group. “The iScan Online partnership complements CompliancePoint’s Vulnerability Scanning services and offers our customers the option of an in-house solution or managed service to help keep mobile devices secure.”
