Mobile Device Security Service

by Blue Coat Systems


The Blue Coat Mobile Device Security (MDS) service extends the same industry-leading threat protection and policy controls available on Blue Coat cloud web security service, on-premise and virtual appliances to mobile device users wherever they are located. With network-based granular application controls and accurate web filtering, backed by WebPulse and the industry’s only Negative Day Defense, the MDS service allows you to deliver the access users want and ensure the security businesses need. The result is a much more flexible, low-touch approach to securing mobile devices. Enterprises can provision mobile devices for MDS using AirWatch. Blue Coat has developed a set of APIs that allows AirWatch to integrate with MDS.

Blue Coat MDS leverages AirWatch to provision mobile devices (Android, iOS) to connect to Blue Coat cloud irrespective of the connection method (3G/4G or Wi-Fi). The integration is first of its kind between two top-tier vendors in web security and EMM. The joint engineering efforts between the two companies allow for a seamless experience for the administrator and end users.
