Digicel Business has introduced Lookout Mobile Security.
Digicel Business will now offer Lookout Mobile Security with all of its cellular plans at no additional charge.
What is Lookout Mobile Security?
It’s a new detection and prevention service that protects organizations and their employees from application, network, and device attacks via mobile devices while maintaining 100% privacy on any network, cell phone, or Wi-Fi.
With Lookout, Digicel Business customers benefit from real-time visibility into incidents via a dashboard
Why is this move an important step in the right direction for businesses in Barbados?
Shocking statistics show why maintaining a robust level of security is essential for all businesses. According to Fortinet, the global leader in unified threat management solutions, there were 144 million cyber attack attempts in 2022, with 70 percent of all attacks occurring via mobile devices. The study also showed that 95 percent of cybersecurity breaches are caused by human error, with 60 percent of people reusing old passwords, making themselves more vulnerable to an attack.
How does Lookout Mobile Security work?
Lookout Mobile Security protects businesses from the following threats:
Application Threats – Warn users about malicious apps that aim to steal sensitive business or personal information; and to confuse apps that violate company policies or compliance requirements. Network Threats – Alert users when they are about to join an unencrypted network without password protection. Web and Content (Phishing) – VPN and alerting, notify users of phishing attempts from browsers, email and SMS.
Martha Tate, Digicel Group Chief Business Officer, said:
“We are excited to partner with Lookout Mobile Security to protect businesses in the region from data breaches. The use of mobile devices and apps in the workplace continues to increase, challenging IT leaders to find a balance between embracing mobility and ensuring security.”
Martha continued, “This partnership between Digicel Business and Lookout helps ensure every Caribbean business can benefit from mobile productivity despite heightened risks in the region, with the confidence that their business assets are better protected.”
