Skycure announced plans to integrate with Microsoft’s Enterprise and Mobility Suite last month, and that functionality is finally here. The integration lets organizations use Skycure’s threat detection with Intune’s device compliance feature, giving detailed, real-time access to the data it provides.
This lets admins apply device protections as soon as a threat is detected, notifying Intune and enforcing conditional access controls.
“Mobile threat defense is becoming an important need in the enterprise, but it can be tricky to protect devices that are used for a mix of personal and professional activities. Skycure’s integration with Microsoft EMS provides protection for a wide range of devices that access corporate data, while making it as easy as possible for IT teams to configure,” said Andrew Conway, general manager of product marketing for EMS.
Skycure EMS Integration Advantages
Skycure integration comes with two setup options, full and basic. Basic allows only read-only visibility, while the former lets Skycure report risks and incidents to Intune. According to Microsoft, the integration offers many advantages:
- “Seamless integration with Microsoft EMS
- Holistic, multi-layered mobile security with real-time, risk-based conditional access
- Stand-alone protection above and beyond the integrated protections with the EMM
- Enterprise-grade, public app that doesn’t require sideloading for easy deployment and maintenance
- Negligible impact on user experience, performance, or battery
- Massive, crowd-sourced mobile threat intelligence engine with the ability to anticipate zero-day threats, and visibility into millions of legitimate and malicious apps, and benign and suspicious networks
- The advantage of Skycure’s unparalleled cybersecurity research, which has uncovered a number of the most well-known mobile vulnerabilities and malicious exploits”
Skycure supports all Android devices of 4.1 and later and iOS devices 8 and above. You find more information about the integration on the TechNet blog and view Microsoft’s documentation for more detail.
