Securing a Mobile World: Identity Experts Partners with Lookout

Posted on 24 April 2019

As part of our ongoing mission to offer evolving identity and security services, we’ve partnered with Lookout. Here’s what that means.

We’re delighted to announce our new partnership with mobile security experts, Lookout.

This relationship is the next step in a  journey to offer our customers more, all delivered by trusted experts in their respective fields. In Lookout’s case, that’s the realm of mobile security.

Who are Lookout?

Behind Lookout are its founders – John Hering, Kevin Mahaffey, and James Burgess.

The trio notably discovered a security vulnerability involving Bluetooth signals and Nokia mobile phones in 2004. When the technology giant dismissed the seriousness of such a security liability, they took action. By pulling in Bluetooth signals from 1.2 miles away, the founders were able to hack sensitive phone data from attendees of the 2005 Academy Awards, demonstrating what was at stake.

From these enlightening beginnings, Lookout was born. Since that fateful discovery, Lookout has developed a mobile-first approach to security, offering individuals, IT administrators and CISOs the promise of trusted mobility in a world without data borders.

What’s to Come?

In recent years, three distinct developments have occurred, changing how we live, work and play: mobile devices have become increasingly commonplace, our data has become significantly more precious, and threats to said data have flourished.

Businesses in 2019 (including our customers) rely on mobile devices, either through BYOD workplace policies or as part of their own technological outfitting. Therefore, moving to protect their data and devices was an obvious choice.

Our partnership with Lookout will complement those efforts, allowing us to help build trust and reliability within our customers’ organisations using Lookout’s excellent offering.

“It’s a great honour to be partnering with Lookout, helping our customers achieve more, securely, in a mobile first world”

– David Murrell, CEO, Identity Experts

 

All in all, we’re excited for the next step in our journey – and even more so to have Lookout joining us along the way. If you’d like to find out more about any of our offerings, be sure to get in touch with our team of experts.
