Marble Security Announces Acceptus as UK 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 22, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Marble Security today announced that Acceptus IT Ltd., a multi-disciplinary IT sales and service company, will acquire resellers of its AppHawk mobile threat intelligence and defense service as a value added distributor (VAD) for U.K. enterprises and government organizations. Acceptus provides the latest and most technologically advanced security products to the U.K. market.

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.

"Acceptus believes there is high demand for Marble's AppHawk solution in the U.K. market. It's a natural add-on product that will improve the quality of other MDM solutions, and we are excited to be a part of it as a value added distributor," said James Hall, sales director at Acceptus. "Enterprises and governments need to know what apps are actually doing on mobile devices, and we see AppHawk as the best solution for the market today."

"We are excited to have Acceptus represent Marble in the U.K.  The company has proven itself as a leader in successfully bringing new, innovative security products to the market. We look forward to working with James and the Acceptus team as we work to grow our partner program worldwide," said Steve Ryan, SVP of Business Development for Marble Security.

Marble is also increasing distribution in Australia and New Zealand as well as the U.S., continuing its channel program expansion.
