Shavlik is happy to announce that we have added a new product, Secure Mobile Email by LetMobile, to our product line. LetMobile is a secure email solution that brings the same effectiveness and ease of management that you have come to expect from Shavlik to the challenge of protecting corporate information on mobile devices.
Today, I sat down with product manager Eran Livne to learn more about Secure Mobile Email by LetMobile. Eran has led this product from its inception and has spent years studying the mobile device management space.
Anne: Why LetMobile? What problem does it solve for our friends in IT?
Eran: There’s a new challenge with all of these smart devices. Users buy devices and want to use them for work; however, they don’t want IT to control them and have less concern about security. IT is used to managing and controlling, owns security, and is held responsible if a data breach occurs. There is a huge gap between the interests of these two sides.
Anne: How do we bridge this gap?
Eran: LetMobile was built to find this balance and to bridge this gap. We provide the best of both worlds; IT gets security compliance management and data protection, and users get a native email experience on the device of their choosing. They don’t have to use subpar email clients to consume corporate emails or separate the process of reading work email from reading personal email.
With LetMobile security policies apply only to corporate data, so the solution has no knowledge or control over personal data or app’s. This means users are free to use their devices how they wish, do not need to fear corporate “big brother,” and don’t have to comply with annoying policies like being forced to lock their devices or granting the company access to wipe their devices.
Eran: LetMobile is a gateway solution. We offer on-premise and SaaS offerings that act as an intermediary between Exchange (or your email service) and user devices. The LetMobile gateway streams email to the device, so email and email attachments are never stored on the device. Additionally, corporate credentials are never stored on the mobile device, so if the device is lost, the user’s corporate creds cannot be compromised.
Anne: Beyond basic email security what are some of the other cool capabilities of LetMobile?
Eran: LetMobile includes data loss prevention (DLP) capabilities that look into the “body” of emails and attachments and can take action based on the presence of keywords or regular expressions. This coupled with LetMobile’s geo-fencing capabilities means say a financial institution could enforce a policy where customer account numbers are masked in emails unless the device is in a trusted location. LetMobile can keep confidential information from leaving the four walls of your corporate headquarters and even your country’s borders.
