Microsoft and Lookout: Securing all your endpoints begins today

screen-shot-2016-10-04-at-9-24-38-am

Today, we are excited to announce that the Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security integration with Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) is now generally available.

This means that while enterprise employees more seriously consider mobile devices to be an invaluable tool in their everyday working lives, enterprise IT teams don’t have to struggle to secure the rapidly increasing number of endpoints on their networks.

“Mobile devices have become the new frontier for cyber attack”

Doing work without a mobile device is soon to be a forgotten concept. This means that data, or access to corporate data, lives with the mobile device, making the device a valuable target for attackers.

“The digital transformation that’s affecting every organization brings with it increasingly sophisticated threats – and mobile devices are at the forefront of many cyber-attacks,” said Brad Anderson, corporate vice president of Enterprise Mobility for Microsoft. “The integration between Lookout and Microsoft EMS helps ensure that, despite this increased risk, any enterprise can benefit from mobile productivity with the assurance that their corporate assets are better protected.”

How the integration works

In the Lookout and Microsoft EMS integrated solution, Lookout continuously monitors iOS and Android devices for app-, network-, and OS-based threats and risks. It then passes that information directly to Microsoft Intune. If a threat or risk is identified, admins can restrict that device’s access to resources like Microsoft Office 365 using Microsoft’s conditional access policies. When access is blocked, Intune and Lookout walk the employee step-by-step through the process of remediating the threat, in order to regain resource access.

For more information on how to set up this integration, here is a great step-by-step guide published on the Intune documentation site.
