Lookout, an integrated endpoint-to-cloud security company, has announced the industry’s first Zero Trust access solution that dynamically adapts to changes in the risk levels of mobile endpoints and users as well as the sensitivity level of data.
The solution is an expansion of Lookout Continuous Conditional Access (CCA), achieved by integrating the company’s Mobile Endpoint Security and Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) solutions. Lookout is the first SASE vendor to use native real-time device and user risk assessment to dynamically modify access and security policies from any mobile endpoint to any cloud or on-premises application.
People bypass perimeter-based security when using mobile devices and cloud apps to work from anywhere. To secure remote workers, organisations have traditionally relied on virtual private networks (VPNs), Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) and basic device security checks. The problem is these assessments are typically performed only at the time of access and are limited to whether an endpoint is managed and has antivirus enabled. Risk assessments must be performed continuously to identify new and changing app, device, network and phishing threats as well as anomalous user behaviour to protect an organisation’s data based on its sensitivity level.
“With employees no longer inside office security perimeters, organisations must deploy Zero Trust-based access to safeguard their data,” said Aaron Cockerill, Chief Strategy Officer, Lookout. “With our Zero Trust access solution, Lookout customers have integrated access control with the ability to use all of this telemetry so that they can enable remote productivity without exposing their data to risk.”
With the integrated Lookout Security Platform that delivers Mobile Endpoint Security, Cloud Access Security Broker and Zero Trust Network Access solutions, Lookout CCA provides the following key benefits:
- Secure endpoint to cloud productivity
- Granular and dynamic policy enforcement
- Meet compliance requirements
- Simplify operations and reduce cost
The Lookout Zero Trust access solution includes integrated data loss prevention (DLP) technology that provides insight into data sensitivity. By combining the risk assessment of devices and users with data sensitivity, organisations can now dynamically adapt access to protect apps and data rather than being limited to making blunt ‘yes’ and ‘no’ access decisions. With continuous risk assessment capabilities, data sensitivity insight and granular access policies, Lookout can dynamically modify data access with precision, such as redacting sensitive keywords, applying watermarks or encrypting the data so it is protected even when downloaded and distributed offline.Click below to share this article
