MobileSecure has announced that it has acquired Highwall Technologies LLC, a provider of top-rated wireless endpoint security products. MobileSecure will use intellectual property and technology assets from the acquisition to provide MobileSecure Enterprise customers with new tools to help protect them from the threat of unauthorized wireless.
MobileSecure plans to make available to customers an integrated version of wireless protection based on the Highwall Technologies product, within one month. The upcoming release will allow complete control of wireless connectivity and use on an employee’s computer. The tool will be configurable to block unauthorized wireless connections and prevent common threats and vulnerabilities including wireless bridging and wireless hijacking.
Terms of the acquisition were not announced. Details of the MobileSecure solution beyond the planned release, including product plans, pricing and a timeline for delivery, are not yet available. The wireless technology will complement the enhanced security features available in MobileSecure Enterprise to provide a higher level of protection to mobile users. MobileSecure strongly recommends that customers use a wireless security solution in addition to their mobile management, port control and auditing solutions for preventing data loss and leakage and empower safe mobile computing.
