Sophos just announced the integration of Sophos Mobile Security with Microsoft Intune. Here are the full details!
Sophos Mobile Security Now Integrates With Microsoft Intune!
With this integration, Microsoft Intune customers running Sophos Mobile Security 9.0, will be able to configure access controls fed by the latest mobile device threat information.
This would enable their employees to work and access data securely from any device or location, while remaining compliant with corporate data security rules.
Running on Microsoft Azure, the Sophos Mobile Security integration will provide IT administrators with the ability to configure individual device usage policies within Microsoft Intune. If an individual endpoint is compromised, IT administrators will have detailed insights from Sophos Mobile Security, which would allow them to better decide whether they should lockdown that endpoint and deny access to corporate data.
“As we move towards zero trust networking, enhanced conditional access is crucial. With remote working on the increase and the knock-on effect that has on corporate data access across a variety of mobile devices, there is a growing requirement to enable user productivity without compromising data security,” commented Dan Schiappa, chief product officer at Sophos. “Understanding and managing security threats is central to this operating environment and our integration with Microsoft delivers on this requirement. By offering detailed threat insights relating to individual mobile endpoints, IT administrators can make more informed choices on whether to block a device from network access. By giving administrators that extra context, access denial can be more effectively restricted to ensure productivity is only impacted where necessary.”
“In today’s increasingly mobile environment, more granular context is becoming essential to ensure networks are less easily compromised by malware or potentially unwanted content,” said Ryan McGee, Director, Microsoft Security Marketing at Microsoft Corp. “Integrations with security solution providers like Sophos are important to us. We are excited to extend the capabilities of the Microsoft Intune solution to deliver improved security posture to our customers.”
Sophos Mobile Security runs on both Android and iOS devices and can share threat details with Microsoft to provide that extra bit of context. Conditional Access policies can now take threat detections from Sophos into consideration when deciding whether to allow access to requested resources.
