Sprint dons Mobile Armor for security gig

Thick skin for cellco customers

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Sprint claims it is the first US cellco to deliver end-to-end wireless security for enterprise customers.

The boast was made today on the back of a white-label deal with Mobile Armor, of St. Louis, which is powering the cellco's new Sprint Mobile Security service.

This packages encryption and authentication services for laptops and wireless handhelds, and a delete data function to zap stolen devices. Enterprise spoilsports can dictate what applications their workers can download, at the same time ensuring that they meet those pesky compliance obligations. Last but not least, sysadmins get to play with a web portal through which they control the "mobile workforce assets" - this sounds very BOFH-like to us.

Wireless security is a bugbear of enterprises, but few practise what they preach, as this survey (pdf) of Reg readers, conducted this year, shows.

So perhaps, all you mobile warriors are safe for a little while longer from being turned into "mobile workforce assets". Unless your employers are Sprint customers, of course. ®
