New York Life layers mobile security with MobileIron, Skycure

New York Life has implemented a layered mobile security approach from MobileIron (NASDAQ: MOBL) and Skycure, which helps make its employees and licensed agents more agile with mobile while protecting customer data on devices and in the corporate network, the company said.

New York Life is committed to mobile-enabling its workforce in a way that supports their needs and meets the company´s strict security and compliance requirements. New York Life´s mobile workers use smartphones and tablets to access corporate email and a custom web-based portal where they can securely access customer information

New York Life uses MobileIron to secure and manage a mix of corporate and employee-owned mobile devices, and uses Skycure Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) to detect and protect against threats before they make it to the device. Skycure is currently used on employees´ corporate-owned devices and will soon be rolled out to the licensed agents´ BYOD mobile devices.

Skycure is a company that provides solutions to detect and prevent cyber attacks without compromising the user´s privacy or mobile experience.

MobileIron provides a foundation for companies to transform into mobile first organizations.
