AirPatrol ZoneDefense™ and MetaIntell AppInterrogator™ leverage contextual information to provide safe and dynamic app use on mobile devices.
MAPLE LAWN, MD and MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA November 05, 2013 – AirPatrol and MetaIntell™ today announced a partnership to integrate their products. The integration of AirPatrol’s ZoneDefense™ with MetaIntell’s AppInterrogator™ introduces ease of mind to enterprises with BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies.
The number of mobile app applications and, therefore, associated security risk continues to grow. Recently, Tim Cook of Apple announced there are now over one million apps in the company’s App Store, a similar announcement to one Google Play made in August 2013. With the ever expanding number of applications available to mobile users, it can be overwhelming to decide when and where a single app is safe to use.
“All successful mobile solution providers are integrating location into their capabilities,” said Dr. Guy Levy-Yurista, AirPatrol CTO. “MetaIntell has a unique cloud-based engine for fast and simple mobile app risk analysis that exposes hidden truths. Paired with the precise location pinpointing ability of ZoneDefense, we are able to offer individual devices’ app usage to be approved in some zones but not others, with the added benefit of avoiding unsafe apps.”
“Unlike traditional anti-virus or security logic, AppInterrogator identifies patterns of risk through multiple, asynchronous processes that lead to threats,” said Kevin Mullenex, MetaIntell CEO. “By identifying the risk and the user’s current location, in combination with ZoneDefense, organizations are able to forensically and dynamically refine a user’s device posture, providing an extra layer of protection against potential security threats.”
The combined AirPatrol MetaIntell location-based mobile app risk management solution will be available worldwide in early 2014.
