Cloud Distribution signs Lacoon Security and completes line-up of its Enterprise Mobility & BYOD solutions

Reading, UK – 4th June 2013 – Security and networking value added distributor (VAD) Cloud Distribution has added Lacoon Security, a leader in zero-day malware mitigation for mobile devices, to its growing portfolio of next-generation technology vendors and as a result, completed the line-up of its Enterprise Mobility & BYOD offerings, a collection of complementary technologies which help organisations tackle the challenges of an increasingly mobile workforce. 

The rise of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), Bring Your Own Computer (BYOC) and Bring Your Own App (BYOA) trends, and the enabling power of smart devices have made enterprise mobility a top priority for organisations.  And it shows no signs of abating.  A recent global survey of chief information officers (CIOs) by Gartner predicts that 38 per cent of companies will stop providing devices to workers by 2017. 

Cloud Distribution’s Enterprise Mobility solution addresses the full mobility continuum including securing the end-point from advanced malware, network access control, remote management of mobile devices and securing data whether it’s on the move, at rest or in use.

Vendors included in Cloud Distribution’s Enterprise Mobility solution are:

·         Enterasys Networks      – Advanced NAC and compliance reporting
·         Lacoon Security           - Unique zero day malware detection for mobile devices that adds                                                                     real-time security to static MDM platforms that goes beyond the                                                                     known signature detection capabilities of AV solutions
·         Maas360                     - Gartner Leader for cloud-based Mobile Device Management
·         Meraki                        - Next-generation wireless connectivity
·         Watchful                     - Data-centric security, next-generation data loss prevention (DLP)                                                                   and enterprise risk management (ERM) for mobility

All the technologies in Cloud’s Enterprise Mobility solution are next-generation, cloud-based and easy to deploy, delivering faster and easier sales cycles for resellers. The solutions can be sold stand-alone, bundled or sold as a partner branded managed service, enabling resellers to create their own, bespoke enterprise mobility solution that meets the needs of their end-users.  

Adam Davison, director at Cloud Distribution said: “Our Enterprise Mobility offering enables resellers to have a sensible and relevant conversation with their end-users about the challenges of managing an increasingly mobile workforce. With the cost of cyber security breaches against British businesses amounting to billions of pounds, securing the network against attacks is a number one priority for businesses today.”

Davison concluded: “We have done the research and undertaken due diligence to build a ‘bundle’ of technologies that can be sold as an end-to-end solution. Our Enterprise Mobility stack delivers a comprehensive solution for resellers to help their customers address every step of the security mobility continuum.”
