Marble Security Names Duo NZ Ltd. as Value Added Distributor for AppHawk Mobile Threat Intelligence Platform

Newly Released Solution Guards Enterprises Against Onslaught of Malicious and Data-Leaking Apps

MENLO PARK, Calif., April 21, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Marble Security today announced that it has named Duo NZ Ltd., a leading supplier of security solutions, memory and storage, as a value added distributor (VAD) of its AppHawk mobile threat intelligence and defense service for New Zealand and Australia. Duo will represent Marble in these regions as it acquires resellers in the enterprise and government markets.

Enterprises face a greater threat from the millions of apps their employees casually use each day than from mobile malware. According to Gartner, through 2017, 75 percent of mobile security breaches will occur through apps rather than deep technical attacks on the OS1. Called 'riskware,' these seemingly harmless apps expose enterprise users to data leakage, credential theft and the exfiltration of private information used to target employees in precise, advanced attacks.

The newly released AppHawk solution provides enterprises with comprehensive visibility into and protection against these malicious and privacy-leaking iOS and Android apps. AppHawk is powered by Marble Security's app analysis engine and database of more than 3.5 million analyzed apps from 500,000 publishers. Each app is scored against more than 1,000 potentially malicious and privacy-leaking behaviors to determine whether it is risky or safe. The service complements and is integrated with leading mobile device management (MDM) solutions, providing an essential element of enterprise mobile security.

"Duo is excited to represent Marble Security as a VAD in both the Australia and New Zealand markets," said Kendra Ross, co-founder and director of Duo. "Our research shows there is high demand for Marble's innovative AppHawk solution. We believe the app threat intelligence service is a natural add-on solution to all of the major MDMs and that it offers the best protection for businesses with mobile workers."

From the very beginning, Duo has been committed to excellence in both products and services. It is a niche operator, representing leaders in their markets and serving as an extension of its vendors— not just an order taker. This has led to the development of long-standing relationships and significant success for its vendor partners.

"Duo has distinguished itself through the years by successfully bringing innovative security products to both the Australia and New Zealand markets, making it a perfect partner for Marble's AppHawk solution," said Steve Ryan, SVP of Business Development, Marble Security. "We are looking forward to working with Kendra and the Duo team as we grow our channel program worldwide."

In efforts to expand its partner program, Marble is also increasing distribution in the U.S. and U.K.
