Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 10, 2013
Leading mobile security event correlation provider SyncDog today announced a developer partner agreement with SpydrSafe Mobile Security, a provider of enterprise solutions for uniformed and fine-grained policy control over any mobile application. SyncDog, a division of mobile security consultancy and solutions provider IntegriCell Group, will provide multi-factor user authentication (MFA) while SpydrSafe will set policy rules and control application access to enterprise network environments. The combined solution is ideal for enterprise environments that heavily rely on Common Access Card (CAC) authentication technology such as government, military and financial institutions.
“This solution has a very high degree of authentication and security at the application layer,” said SpydrSafe CEO Michael R. Pratt. “With this technology partnership, SyncDog and SpydrSafe have created a mobile security solution that clearly demonstrates that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”
SpydrSafe’s Mobile DLP™ will control app access on smartphones and tablets, essentially telling the applications whether or not they can share information with other applications users are opening. IT admins can specify corporate security policy for “protected apps” such as email, and blacklisted apps that might be outside the firewall, such as a DropBox shared cloud app. Upon breach of policy, the system denies access from the device with a training message to the user that the action is “prohibited by IT policy."
SyncDog will provide hardware-separated authentication through the IntegriCell KeyLime device. KeyLime is a hardware token about the size of a lime wedge that plugs into the standard 3.5mm audio jack available on nearly all mobile devices. Mobile carrier signal and WIFI is established only after KeyLime validates a match between the user’s unique ID and the KeyLime token. Once secure communication is established, the user can unplug KeyLime from the audio jack and insert headphones and use the device as normal, and KeyLime will continue to protect the device.
“We don’t believe any other infosec vendors in our space are doing anything this significant with application access control,” said Jonas Gyllensvaan, SyncDog founder and CEO. “With our multi-factor authentication and SpydrSafe’s ability to blacklist any app, we are providing unmatched app security without compromising device functionality.”
