Fortinet Unveils New FortiGuard Mobile Security Subscription Service to Protect Mobile Devices Across the Enterprise

Reinforces Company’s Commitment to Helping Enterprises of All Sizes Deploy, Manage and Secure Networks in a Mobile Era

Last May 27, 2015, Fortinet has announced a new FortiGuard Mobile Security service that is subscription-based to help enterprises protect mobile devices from cyber threats, specifically in business environments where “bring your own device” (BYOD) policies have been adopted. Due to the industry’s shift from wired access to wireless access in enterprise networks, maintaining visibility and control of the mobile traffic in your workspace has become as important as old, traditional network traffic. THe new FortiGuard Mobile Security subscription service includes mobile application control and mobile malware protection across both Apple IOS and Android environments.

IT infrastructure is evolving constantly with BYOD, cloud, SDN, hybrid WAN and secure WLAN, making the enterprise more flexible, yet at the same time exposing new points of entry for the malicious attacks. Our new mobile application control and mobile malware protection service integrated into the network, and particularly WLAN, provide enterprises globally with the visibility and control they need over mobile devices to protect their corporate assets, especially in BYOD environments.
