BETHESDA, Md., Feb. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Triad Technology Partners is pleased to announce its newest vendor partnership with Proofpoint, Inc.™ to complement a range of technology solutions for Government, Agency and Corporate customers. Proofpoint, a leading next-generation cybersecurity company, protects the way people work today from advanced threats and compliance risks. The flagship Proofpoint Targeted Attack Protection™ (TAP) Mobile Defense solution will help Triad customers meet complex regulatory compliance and data governance mandates by helping them stop malicious mobile applications before those applications compromise sensitive data.
Gartner reports that by the year 2017, 75 percent of mobile devices breach in security will occur from the use of apps and not from deep, technical attacks on the device's OS. "Providing a solution for this growing and imminent threat for our customers was essential. We are pleased to be aligned with this industry leader," stated Triad's CEO, Bridget Dunnington.
Proofpoint's TAP Mobile Defense provides organizations with comprehensive protection and visibility against malicious and privacy-leaking iOS and Android mobile apps. Research has found that many apps, even in legitimate app stores, are mining private data and sending the information to unauthorized servers around the world. These apps frequently lead to advanced persistent threats (APTs), spear-phishing attacks on employees and leaked corporate data.
Backed by Proofpoint's advanced application analysis engine and its worldwide research team, TAP Mobile Defense has analyzed more than five million free and paid iOS and Android apps. Each application's risk profile is determined by scoring against more than 1,000 potentially malicious and privacy-leaking behaviors.
"As mobile usage increases, so too does the volume of mobile security threats. Our customers face an immense challenge in dealing with these threats, and Proofpoint's Targeted Attack Protection is a critical tool in securing a mobile infrastructure," stated Dunnington.
TAP Mobile Defense works in conjunction with enterprise mobile device management (MDM), enterprise mobility management (EMM) and mobile security management (MSM) solutions to provide dynamic app threat detection and protection. The solution integrates with MobileIron and AirWatch today, with more MDM partners becoming available in early 2016.
