NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., April 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- eAgency Mobile Security, developer of the My Mobile Watchdog® an award wining mobile application for parental controls, today announced the debut of Blackbox Mobile, the first robust, reliable and easy to use mobile compliancy solution for companies to manage mobile device usage and the business risks introduced through the use of these mobile devices .
Blackbox Mobile builds on the nationally-renowned technology found in eAgency's My Mobile Watchdog that was previously available to government and law enforcement agencies. Blackbox Mobile allows employers to gain productivity improvements associated with mobile applications and devices, while reducing the inherent risk associated with the use of mobile devices, including non-compliant communications and lost and stolen devices by:
- Archiving call logs, text messages (SMS/MMS) and email
- Blocking or disabling non-compliant applications
- Remotely wiping data and disabling malicious applications
- Locking down a device's configuration
- Providing Application Management and Policy Management
- Enabling the eDiscovery of critical mobile data
- Utilization of device provisioning capabilities
Blackbox Mobile is a carrier- and platform-agnostic solution that reduces the three major forms of risk associated with company-issued mobile devices: compliance, data security and application management. Blackbox Mobile enables its customers to comply with certain government regulations including Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPPA and SEC mandates, as well as internal corporate compliance and security policies.
"Given the increased penetration of mobile devices, the rise in mobile data and application usage by corporate America, employers now understand the need to manage the risks introduced through the use of smartphones and other mobile devices," said Robert Lotter, CEO of eAgency Mobile Security. "Blackbox Mobile offers employers proven technology that can reliably manage these threats across virtually all mobile platforms."
Blackbox Mobile operates in the background without interrupting day-to-day business activity. The system consists of two elements—software installed on the mobile device and a Web-based dashboard driven policy management and alert system. Employers use the Blackbox Mobile dashboards to set and maintain wireless policy, secure lost or stolen devices remotely, restore data to new devices and monitor real time alerts.
With Blackbox Mobile's, remote wipe and restore capabilities, lost or stolen devices and all the information stored on that device can be secured while administrators can block and manage specific applications and/or browser usage. With Blackbox Mobile's dynamic policy management, administrators can allow certain application use during specific days or hours, changing policies on the fly if needed, and generate activity reports for subsequent audit or legal purposes. A contextual search tool quickly sifts through all communications when needed, making the electronic discovery and policy management processes quick and easy.
Blackbox Mobile is affordable for organizations of all sizes and available as a hosted solution for rapid deployment or can be onsite for data privacy regulations. For more information, visit www.blackboxmobile.com.
