Based on its recent analysis of the mobile security market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Pradeo with the 2021 Global Enabling Technology Leadership Award for supporting enterprise mobility with its unified, feature-rich AI services. By protecting managed and unmanaged mobile devices, its solution stack is especially valuable to organizations with bring-your-own-device (BYOD) operation models.

“A global market leader and an end-to-end service provider, Pradeo has the scale, capabilities, and technology to address a gamut of mobile security needs for organizations of all sizes,” said Vikrant Gandhi, Research Vice President for Frost & Sullivan. “Its patented AI engine is at the core of its mobile security solution and enables it to configure products quickly. Highly adaptable and applicable across business cases, Pradeo’s technology aids rapid implementation and offers long-term value across a client’s mobile security strategy.”

One of Pradeo’s leading turnkey solutions, the Secure Private Store, eliminates the possibility of third-party applications compromising individual or organizational security through the network and extending to the operating system and apps on the device. An alternative to mobile device management (MDM, EMM, UEM…) systems that are often restrictive and diminish BYOD accessibility, the Secure Private Store assists organizations and carriers with unique functions to protect their environment.

Pradeo’s solution set equips security teams with in-depth visibility into what applications do with data and controls. This solution offers flexibility to customize permissions, execute zero-touch deployments, and interoperate with major stakeholders in the mobile device management ecosystem. Pradeo recommends predefined configurations to fit small and medium businesses’ needs, so its solutions are ready-to-implement, include automation remediation, and require only light-touch administration.

“Pradeo prides itself on delivering exceptional data privacy. In addition to the app protection tools, it ensures that all of the information collected as a part of its mobile security logs is anonymized,” noted…

UVa engineering researchers find security flaw in fast computer chips | UVa

“Usually when a security issue happens, it comes in through software. It’s like they see your secrets through the window or sneak a peek while walking through the gate,” Ren said. “Spectre is like walking in the front door and before you get to the security desk, you go down to the basement and listen in on all of the secrets.”

The flaw is not a serious threat to the average laptop, desktop or tablet, the researchers say.

“Information that’s important, like military information, is something hackers will be willing to go to greater lengths to target and use a process like Spectre. But they’re not going to be targeting your grandma,” said Moody. “Well, at least not now, maybe in 10 years or so. These kinds of attacks are more difficult to execute.”

“11-year-old me is not likely to pull this off, but 23-year-old me would be able to take more time to pull this off,” Ren said. “I wouldn’t use this to get into someone’s bank account, but I could use it to get into a bank’s system and access multiple accounts. That’s where this would be a threat. It’s not a threat to your personal computer, but it is a threat to the business world.”

The team is not planning to exploit its discovery. They’re not going to shut down a gasoline pipeline or wrestle ransom in Bitcoin from unsuspecting governments or corporations. Instead, they want to help big chip makers and those involved in the industry find ways to block the thefts.
