San Mateo – August 23, 2012 - Clutch Mobile, a provider of advanced mobile security, today is announcing its mobile security solution that works across three critical layers: the mobile device, the applications on the device, and the network. It is the most comprehensive solution available that gives IT admins the necessary tools to prevent and mitigate data breaches, ensure compliance, and expand threat visibility. With over 1 million downloads and deployments by numerous organizations around the world, Clutch Mobile’s products are already proving their value to a wide range of businesses.
Clutch Mobile was born out of the observation that security for mobile is fundamentally different than security for PC’s. Mobile devices are often personal, resource constrained, and network independent. The founding team understands these key differences with years of experience in mobile and security at companies including Lumitrend (acquired by Asurion), McAfee, Oracle, Verisign and Cenzic.
”Critical data accessed through today’s smart mobile devices can be at risk when any single point of failure – the device, the applications, or the network – is compromised,” said Garrett Larsson, Co-Founder. “By securing each layer, and analyzing interactions between layers, threats can effectively be thwarted and breaches audited.”
Clutch Mobile Technology
Clutch Mobile offers three layers of protection around the device, apps, and network that intelligently work together to protect critical data. By taking a layered security approach, the risk of data loss is minimized by protecting against physical device compromise, malicious or data leaking apps, and insecure networks.
Protecting data at the app layer, organizations can lock down and enforce precise usage policies on specific applications with App Protector, while all other apps are monitored by Clutch Mobile’s proprietary app intelligence technology. At the device layer, systems administrators can enforce device policies and monitor handset level compromises through Clutch Mobile’s cloud-based device management console.
NetGuard, the latest feature and still in beta, provides a secure internet connection whether a user is connected to a 3G network or a public hotspot. A school or company that needs stricter network policies can even filter websites by category or blacklist them, effectively providing a cloud-based firewall.
Clutch Mobile’s hosted solutions stand out for their ease of use, enabling organizations to immediately deploy and manage mobile security with constrained budgets and existing resources. With no on-premise software, an organization can be up and running in 10 minutes.
Free and premium versions of Clutch Mobile’s products are available today for both iOS and Android devices. Sign up at www.clutchmobile.com.
