BARCELONA, March 2, 2015 -- CUPP Computing will demonstrate its innovative Mobile Security Engine™ (MSE) technology at Mobile World Congress (MWC15) this week. The CUPP MSE technology is based on an independent, self-contained subsystem providing mobile security, data encryption, antimalware, intrusion prevention and detection, web reputation, and app behavior analysis for protection of BYOD mobile devices and critical corporate data from targeted attacks. CUPP also will demonstrate its cloud-based or customer-premises-based IT management server software which provides IT departments with highly granular control of BYOD security and constant data on device status.
“Obviously, there have been a huge increase in targeted attacks and data breaches worldwide,” said CUPP Computing CEO Art Swift. “As more companies allow users to bring their own devices into the workplace and interact with enterprise computing environments, mobile devices are becoming an attractive target for sophisticated attackers. Attackers are stealing data, damaging the brand of companies large and small, and creating potential legal or financial liability in many cases. Our customers are looking for the next level of protection for their sensitive corporate and customer data.”
CUPP’s Mobile Security Engine solutions are designed to operate as independent systems, physically separated from the smartphone, tablet or point of sale system they protect. The CUPP MSE analyzes incoming traffic and blocks suspicious payloads before they can penetrate the mobile device or compromise other parts of the enterprise system. Because the CUPP MSE runs an independent, hardened OS, it is immune from typical attacks targeted at the smartphone host OS and processor.
“Consumer technology is sexy, convenient and easy to use. When it comes to security, however, today’s mobile platforms still have a long way to go,” says Cesare Garlati, co-chair of the Mobile Group, Cloud Security Alliance. “I find CUPP’s approach intriguing as it creates a hardened shell around sensitive corporate data without invading end-user experience and privacy.”
The first product in CUPP’s planned line of Mobile Security Engines, the Gatekeeper-mSD™, is designed for Android smartphones and tablets. Packaged in a single microSD format card, the Gatekeeper-mSD is actually a sophisticated microcomputer with its own powerful processor, hardened and secure operating system, and encrypted flash memory. Upcoming CUPP MSE products are targeted for iPhones and iPads as well as Android devices without microSD slots.
The CUPP Gatekeeper-mSD Mobile Security Engine is slated to undergo rigorous testing at leading companies in the banking, accounting, consulting, industrial, and defense markets, early this year.
