Problem:  How do you secure users’ unmanaged devices.

The global pandemic, financial headwinds, and remote work have all made unmanaged devices a fixture of the work-from-anywhere economy. Organisations don’t want to pay for every mobile device, laptop, and tablet. Employees don’t want their employers to install software on their phones.

It is obvious unmanaged devices aren’t as secure as managed hardware. Mobile-related compromises have doubled from 2021 to 2022. About one-fifth of successful phishing emails come from mobile devices.

The increase in breaches means 73% of organisations that experienced a mobile-related compromise is considered a “major” breach. The cost implications are huge.

Unmanaged devices are inherently less secure than managed hardware and are still necessary for business.

RSA Mobile Lock prevents risks and detects on-device threats.

Mobile Lock is automatically deployed as part of the RSA Authenticator App—it’s not a second app that users need to manage. Once installed, Mobile Lock scans for critical risks like jailbroken devices, suspicious apps, elevation of privileges, man-in-the-middle attacks, and other threats. If it detects a threat, Mobile Lock restricts users from using the RSA Authenticator. When it detects a threat, Mobile Lock leaves all other systems on the device unaffected—a user can still call, text, connect to the Internet and, ideally, contact their IT department to resolve the issue.
