Sophos has announced the latest version of its mobile device management solution, Sophos Mobile Control 3.0, offered both on-premise and as-a-service. This new version includes support for Samsung SAFE devices as well as providing integration with Sophos Mobile Security 2.0, which protects Android devices from malicious apps. The company cites Gartner's "Market Share: Mobile Phones by Region and Country, 3Q12" report to show that Android smartphone sales to end upsers by operating systems jumped to 72.4 percent in Q3 of 2012. According to Sophos, many organisations have had to adapt due to the lack of security controls on these devices and because Androids are vulnerable to and targeted by malware. “More organisations are struggling with how to implement a BYOD policy. As Android’s market share continues its ascent, and threats targeting Android continue to appear, it’s clear that anti-malware needs to be part of that policy,” says John Shaw, vice president, product management, Sophos. “The latest version of Sophos Mobile Control makes it even simpler for IT teams to implement mobile device management, including built-in anti-malware, making secure BYOD possible for organisations of all sizes.”
