Redmond, WA (PRWEB) August 08, 2013
i7 Networks, an innovator in enterprise mobile security specializing in BYOD solutions, today announced the launch of the world's first on-premise Zero-touch, Zero-latency as well as “connect from anywhere” mobile security service. i7 Networks peregrine7 is the first mobile specific network access control (mNAC(tm)).
"Every mobile device is a potential attack point-of-entry," said Manjunath Gowda, CEO of i7 networks. “A dynamic check whether the device is infected or not before allowing into the network is very critical.” "The mobile workforce is demanding better mobile productivity and collaboration without affecting the user experience or tracking them, but IT won't risk security, compliance or privacy breaches. i7’s peregrine7 offers the perfect balance between IT control and user flexibility. Also you don't have to go to the cloud to offer such a service and your data is all safe in the premises.” All these are done without installing any agent or a client or an app on the mobile device itself.
According to a recent survey by Dark Reading (July 2013), the second top most mobile security threat is “infected devices getting into the corporate network” (close first being sensitive data on the device). This is exactly what we solve. We dynamically discover & fingerprint all devices that are trying to enter the enterprise, dynamically calculate the Device Vulnerability Index (DVI(tm)) based on the malicious nature, existing vulnerabilities and whether the device is compromised or not. Based on these parameters decide whether to allow or deny the device and prevent any infected or highly vulnerable device getting onto the corporate network.
We have also included the “Connect from Anywhere” feature and it provide the same mobile network access controls when they connect from public Wi-Fi or 3G/4G/LTE too.
A recent study by Checkpoint showed that 79% businesses had a mobile incident last year alone and the cost was $500,000 per such mobile incident for large enterprises, and was $100,000 for an SMB.
"While employees expect anytime, anywhere access to their apps, content and data to get their work done, CIOs are now expected to support BYOD within their corporate environment and still need to have that control over the access to corporate network as well as corporate assets, as well as adhere to all compliance rules. Peregrine7 is a truly innovative solution that gives users complete BYOD freedom with access to all their corporate apps and data & not just email, while providing peace of mind for CIO in keeping track completely of which device did what, keep an eye on the malicious traffic from the device and deny the access dynamically. Also control what access can be given to what device and when; delivered in a way that is very low risk as far as deployment is concerned (zero-latency) and that's incredibly lightweight for CIOs to deploy and manage," said i7’s CTO – Chandra M Shekar.
