Reston, VA (PRWEB) January 29, 2016
SyncDog, Inc., the leading independent software vendor (ISV) for mobile application containerization, today announced a comprehensive solution combating threatening IoT security insufficiencies resulting from the rapidly growing enterprise mobility sector. Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and Corporate-Owned, Personally-Enabled (COPE) enterprise mobility expansion has created a major security void bringing personal data and applications on mobile devices dangerously close to enterprise applications and intellectual property.
Groupe Speciale Mobile Association (GSMA), a global mobile consortium representing the interests of mobile operators worldwide, recently revealed that the world now has 3.6 billion unique mobile subscribers, and estimates nearly 70 percent of the world's population will be connected via mobile devices by 2020. In addition, Gartner, Inc., a leading information technology (IT) research and advisory company, recently released statistics revealing 75 percent of mobile applications fail basic security tests. Few CISOs are addressing the growing number of susceptible mobile access points (from both phones and IoT) through which hackers can illegally infiltrate, extract data, and expose harmful malware to enterprise applications, in light of these statistics. Throughout government and corporate sectors, because mobility breaches are not publicized, mobile security appears to be a mere afterthought.
“Mobile security infrastructures aren't fully secured by mobile device management (MDM) solutions. MDM manages the device but does not provide the security necessary to protect the expanding BYOD and COPE world we live in,” says Jonas Gyllensvaan, president and CEO of SyncDog, Inc. “IoT and its relationship with enterprise data is very new, and that means IoT infrastructures are still very loosely defined - even though the threat of mobile breach is growing. If you think IT security is struggling to stem the bleeding from malicious hacks now, wait until BYOD and COPE come front and center. Organizations and government need to start thinking about how to include both mobile and IoT infrastructures into enterprise data security strategies, and now SyncDog has a solution for that.”
SyncDog's SentinelSecure™ is a mobile service and security dilemma solution delivering defense-grade “containers” for mobile devices operating in the context of enterprise BYOD or COPE. These containers reside independently within mobile devices' existing partitions to monitor and protect enterprise data and transfer that data through the secure Sentinel Server network with real-time visibility for malicious activity alerts. SentinelSecure™ works alongside all existing MDM solutions and is designed to be a complementary tool to existing mobility security strategies.
Applications continue to be the most vulnerable access points for breaches, and SentinelSecure™ protects enterprise data at rest and data in transit with FIPS-grade 140-2, AES 256-bit dynamic encryption. A collaborative user interface with most major enterprise mobile business solutions such as Office Suite productivity tools, PDF annotation, network file shares, ActiveSync, Email and IM tools is included.

About SyncDog, Inc.
SyncDog is the leading independent software vendor (ISV) for building secure infrastructure frameworks that protect enterprise networks from cyber breach from mobile computing sources. The SentinelSecure™ product line for application containerization and IoT (Internet of Things) module monitoring provide the industry’s most proactive approach to securing enterprise mobility computing.
The SentinelSecure™ data security solution delivers defense-grade secure mobile device partitions or “containers” that can secure emails/contacts, calendar items, IM apps, Internet browsers, mobile file stores and other business apps provisioned on personal devices to be used in a BYOD or COPE (corporate owned personally enabled) setting.
SentinelSecure™ Framework for IoT provides a data feed from IoT modules into the Sentinel Server (mobile security monitoring) or other Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM)/Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution. SentinelSecure™ for IoT is the EMM industry’s only mobility infrastructure for securing enterprise datacenters from threats originating from IoT-connected devices.
The SyncDog architecture protects both data at rest and data in transit through Federal Information Processing Standard or FIPS 140-2, AES 256 bit encryption. SentinelSecure™ can be provisioned across the SyncDog Sentinel Server, a flexible agent-based MDM platform, or with any EMM/MDM solution.
Utilizing the SyncDog Sentinel Server (or comparable MDM) equipped with the SentinelSecure™ monitoring framework, IT security administrators have the enterprise visibility to incorporate mobile device security into organizational network management strategies that includes the proper audit trails for compliance.
