The acquisition will expand Check Point’s strategic focus to secure the mobile world.
Lacoon is the only company to provide a solution to secure the entire mobile device, with the best advanced threat catch-rate for enterprise-grade mobile security platforms. It not only provides the most comprehensive solution for iOS and Android, but also delivers real-time mobile security and intelligence to an organization’s existing security and mobility infrastructures. Lacoon’s patent-pending technology detects device, application and in-network threats that others will miss and quantifies the risks and vulnerabilities that BYOD exposes to the enterprise.
The Lacoon technology accurately detects and prevents mobile attacks, ensuring enterprises have the visibility and coverage they need to manage vulnerabilities and mitigate risks. When an anomaly occurs on the device or the network, VPN connections are dynamically signaled to block access until the threat is removed.
Lacoon’s technology ensures that a user’s mobile experience is the same as their native use of their device. Moreover, it eliminates the need to open additional applications or activate VPN clients. In addition, how they use their device as well as their information is kept private while ensuring they are protected from threats.
The acquired technology from Lacoon will further extend Check Point’s mobile security portfolio by adding advanced mobile application threat emulation, behavioral risk analysis and real-time anomaly detection capabilities.
