Websense has announced a mobile version of its Triton solution to combine content-aware data security, web security, malicious app protection and mobile device management (MDM).

Websense Triton Mobile Security is a cloud-based security service for Apple iOS devices on wireless mobile networks. According to the company, it allows users to be protected wherever they use their devices, while its data-aware defences protect against data loss and the theft of intellectual property.

It said that administrators can roll out the solution by installing a profile to an iOS device and choose the appropriate policy for company-owned or personal mobile devices to keep them secure. This extends existing web security policies to mobile devices, as well as analysing inbound and outbound data communications.

John McCormack, president of Websense, said: “Websense is focused squarely on securing confidential data as it's accessed by corporate and bring your own device (BYOD) mobile devices.

“With the general availability of Websense Triton Mobile Security, organisations can now have the mobile security they haven't seen with MDM solutions.”
