Lookout,
the leader in securing the post-perimeter world, today announced that it
has joined Google Cloud’s BeyondCorp
Alliance
as one of the only mobile threat defense vendors, giving
organizations the ability to dynamically monitor the health of an
endpoint connected to the enterprise and feed that data to Google
Cloud’s context-aware access engine. Lookout,
alongside Google’s Cloud Identity
, ensures only trusted mobile
devices are accessing enterprise data and apps via Cloud
Identity
.

“To secure the cloud-first, mobile-first world, enterprises need to
adopt a post-perimeter
solution
that includes endpoint protection, secure access to the
cloud as well as identity and access management (IAM),” said Marc
Jaffan, Vice President, Business and Corporate Development at Lookout.
“By joining the BeyondCorp Alliance, Lookout securely enables mobile
productivity for Google’s Cloud Identity, G Suite, and Google Cloud
Platform customers, and furthers our vision to provide security and
productivity for the modern, perimeter-less, cloud-delivered, and
privacy-focused world.”

Lookout is also a Google Cloud Technology Partner, and earlier this
year, Lookout announced the launch of the Post-Perimeter
Security Alliance
, with Google Cloud and other members, to address a
pressing challenge for enterprises: how to integrate security
capabilities across endpoint, cloud, and identity to protect access to
corporate data while enabling productivity. Today, organizations are
adopting formal mobility programs as a way to empower employee
productivity, and Google’s Cloud Identity has become one of the main
ways for employees to access enterprise applications from mobile devices.

Lookout and Cloud Identity help ensure:

  • Device Health — Together, Lookout and Cloud Identity help
    verify that a device is healthy enough to access applications and
    single sign-on (SSO) platforms.
  • Automated detection and remediation — Lookout provides device
    health information (for example, if the device has an app that
    violates security policy) to Cloud Identity and admin can then take
    appropriate remediation action. This includes the ability to block
    access to G Suite and other enterprise apps on unmanaged devices based
    on Lookout risk status.
  • Threat Visibility Enterprises have full visibility
    into out-of-date operating systems, as well as into risky device
    configurations and jailbreak/root detections.
  • Phishing Protection With Lookout, Cloud Identity
    customers can monitor and block mobile attempts from web and
    content-based threats.
