MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Frost & Sullivan has commended AdaptiveMobile, the leader in mobile security, for its visionary approach to mobile threat prevention and security. AdaptiveMobile defines and offers mobile security protection in a unique way that combines the powerful technology of its award-winning Network+ Protection Platform with the research and actionable intelligence of the company's global security research center. AdaptiveMobile now protects more than 1.3 billion users of fixed- mobile- and enterprise-network services on more than 70 carriers and service providers globally against known and emerging threats.
AdaptiveMobile's recognition comes at a time of unprecedented change and advancement in the mobile telecoms and technology marketplaces. Recent Frost & Sullivan research cites advancement and challenges in LTE deployments, mobile payments' starting to heat up the trusted service management market, and software defined networking changing how the carrier networks run, as areas in which mobile security will be a key differentiator. With each advancement comes increasing security risks or weaknesses that come from the convergence of fixed- and mobile-networks, the emergence of applications, the rise of the cloud, the continued growth of big data and the prevalence of the Internet of Things.
Frost & Sullivan recognized AdaptiveMobile with the 2013 Award for Visionary Innovation for its Network+ Protection Platform, based, in part, on its ability to detect and combat threats emerging from the evolution of 4G, the growth of LTE and the lack of standardization around application layer security.
"We are seeing unprecedented growth and advancement in the mobile telecoms and applications market, and with these developments comes the need for mobile threat detection and prevention that encompasses threats from the device through the network to the cloud," said Ronald Gruia, principal analyst, Frost & Sullivan. "AdaptiveMobile historically has been able to protect the current mobile environment while correctly anticipating emerging areas that will need protection."
