Symantec Data Loss Prevention (DLP) for Tablets has now been re-flagged as Data Loss Prevention for Mobile, and will soon support the iPhone. The solution enables monitoring and control of confidential data from mobile devices without restricting users’ access to applications. Data Loss Prevention for Mobile, with iPhone support is scheduled for general availability in late summer. Android support is also on the horizon, but an effective date has not yet been announced.
Symantec Certificate Intelligence Center (CIC) for Mobile is designed to simplify the process of managing SSL certificates across large and complex networks. Detailed, real-time intelligence on SSL certificate usage on the network is now available on the iPad.
Symantec Code Signing for Android provides a tool for developers to digitally sign their .APK files for the Android platform. In addition to signing applications, this cloud-based service allows developers to securely manage their certificate keys and store their signed applications from a single console. Android Root certificate capability is also available.
“This is pretty key because one of the major exploits is to get a copy of the application, modify it and then redistribute it,” said Symantec's Duckering. “For example, last year people were finding free applications of a popular game that worked fine but also had malicious code on them. The users later found out that their devices were sending high-value text messages and doing other things.”
