SAN FRANCISCO, March 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wandera, a leading mobile security provider, today announced a deeper integration with the IBM ecosystem to bolster the combined security offering, aimed at helping businesses seeking greater protection against mobile threats. With mobile rapidly becoming an increasingly important component in the CISO’s security stack, integrations like these are essential to meeting the evolving requirements of the modern, mobile-centric organization.

The new integration is now available to the security community through IBM Security App Exchange, a marketplace where developers across the industry can share applications based on IBM Security technologies. As the mobile threat landscape continues to evolve, collaborative development among security leaders will help organizations adapt quickly to increasingly sophisticated attacks.

Wandera will integrate with IBM MaaS360 with Watson, which helps global organizations of all sizes across all industries manage and secure endpoints, end-users, and everything in between from a single unified platform. This means a better flow of security information between platforms, and a simpler means of deployment across even the largest of mobile fleets.

“It’s been an important part of our strategy to provide customers with a solution that is not only powerful, but also flexible to their unique needs.” said Stijn Paumen, VP of Strategic Alliances at Wandera. “We’re pleased to be enriching our integration with IBM MaaS360 with Watson as part of this vision, and to be part of a growing ecosystem of technologies that help businesses stay ahead of a rapidly shifting threat landscape.”

The sophisticated combined security offering is designed to add extra layers of protection to enterprise devices, including the ability to thwart phishing attacks, flag vulnerabilities and detect malware. Joint customers can also start extending their MaaS360 policies to the browser, applying context-sensitive content filters to manage data consumption and enforce acceptable usage over both 3G/4G and Wi-Fi connections.
