Wandera, provider of advanced mobile threat prevention and data usage optimization for enterprises, together with enterprise mobility specialist CWSI, has announced a strategic partnership with Three to deliver its secure mobile gateway services to business customers in Ireland. The integration will enable Three’s business customers to secure, control and manage mobile data usage across employee devices.
The partnership comes at a time when businesses are focused on driving increases in productivity with mobile workforces conducting business anytime from anywhere. According to Cisco, mobile data consumption is predicted to grow 10-fold over the next four years accelerating the need to manage the associated data costs effectively.
Furthermore, mobile devices are loaded with sensitive corporate and personal data making them a clear target for cyber criminals. Wandera’s technology has detected that 7 in 10 devices in its network are transmitting sensitive data such as usernames and passwords in the clear, the type of data that can be easily stolen by a man-in-the-middle attack. In addition, 1 in 5 devices are vulnerable to local access attack.
