SpydrSafe Releases App for Corporate Data Loss Prevention

By Gerard Longo, Assistant Editor — July 09, 2012

With the newest release from SpydrSafe Mobile Security, the corporate world now has a new mobile seciruty option at its disposal..

The McLean, Virginia-based company has launched the Beta version of SpydrSafe Mobile DLP, a data loss prevention program that specifically protects corporate data on Android smart mobile devices.

SpydrSafe Mobile Security  CEO Michael R. Pratt stated his belief that the program will improve corporations’ ability to keep their data safe in light of the rising trend of “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) policies.

“Protecting corporate information on mobile devices presents enormous challenges for enterprise IT departments. The risk of data breaches is no longer solely an external threat as more employees use their own personal devices in the workplace.” Pratt said. “SpydrSafe Mobile DLP addresses the issues created by BYOD by providing enterprise IT the tools necessary to safeguard data that is accessed and used by mobile apps.”

Combining Two Programs Into One

SpydrSafe Mobile DLP joins elements of two SpydrSafe Mobile Security programs: the SpydrSafe Mobile DLP application for Android, which allows users the ability to protect their smart phone data from external threats, and SpydrSafe Security Manager, a Security-as-a-Service, cloud-based security management console which allows administrators control over the addition and enrollment of new users. Additionally, SpydrSafe Security Manager allows IT administrators to assign users to groups, assign policies and access audit and reporting information.
