Lookout collaborates with DXC Technology to advance a post-perimeter security architecture

By Lookout

The way we work has fundamentally changed. Critical data has moved to the cloud and employees are able to access it from any device, wherever they are in the world. Mobile device threats are one of the fastest growing cybersecurity concerns to any organization. In order to support and secure the ever-evolving workplace, DXC Technology is introducing DXC Mobile Threat Defense, combining forces with Lookout, a leader in post-perimeter security. DXC Mobile Threat Defense, provided as part of the DXC Mobile Enterprise Services, helps customers to leverage the full productivity value of mobile endpoint devices within their enterprise environment securely, knowing corporate data is protected against the full spectrum of mobile risks and preventing data compliance violations.

Securing mobile workforces with Lookout and DXC Mobile Threat Defense

Enabling mobility and the ability to access corporate data seamlessly increases enterprise productivity but causes a serious challenge to security teams who rely on perimeter provisions -- such as firewalls and secure web gateways. Leveraging Lookout as an integral part of the DXC Mobile Threat Defense solution provides clients with the full benefits of Lookout’s specialist knowledge and intelligence in mobile device security and DXC Technology’s expertise in implementing, integrating and managing mobile enterprise services. This gives clients increased security, speed and agility and enables them to work security from anywhere at any time.

"“Secure mobility is a key enterprise requirement that provides competitive advantage by allowing employees to work from their mobile devices while having full and secure access to corporate resources. Engaging with Lookout extends DXC’s strong security capabilities. Together, we will provide enhanced workplace and mobility services to some of the world’s most security conscious clients, including Western military organizations, military contractors, healthcare organizations, and financial institutions.”"


Maria Pardee, senior vice president and general manager, Workplace and Mobility, at DXC.
