MI3 SECURITY MITIGATES “WINDOW OF VULNERABILITY” RISK AT RELEASE OF IOS AND WATCHOS
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – May 12, 2015 – Mi3 Security ™, the leader in contextual intelligence-led Mobile Risk Management (MRM), including wearable’s, today announced support for iOS 8.4 and Apple Watch. This support brings unprecedented mobile app assessment capability to iOS and Apple Watch products. “Wearable’s introduce a new and intriguing attack vector for malicious actors. Increasing amounts of information are being collected from applications we run on mobile devices and now smart watches, and it is paramount that the apps we use are not exfiltrating our sensitive data,” said Lee Cocking, General Manager, Big Data at Guardtime. “Only Mi3 Security mitigates this risk by providing immediate support for new iOS releases and Apple Watch, ahead of the pack. This is a result of Mi3 Security’s patented approach which allows native risk detection without relying on jailbreaking.”
iOS devices and wearables are not immune to privacy leakage and broken security, that include 3rd Party miss-implementation (AFNetworking, OpenSSL, Go-to fail, Heartbleed, ShellStorm), personal information leakage, corporate data leakage, emails, healthcare data, billing, contacts, geolocation and phishing. Ongoing security analysis of these threats and their actual impact to the corporation is a key component in risk mitigation. This is why Mi3 Security focuses its research on the latest iOS aspects including HealthKit, ResearchKit, Apple Watch, Apple Pay and more actively covering iOS versions 8.4 and below including the latest Apple Watch line of applications.
“Mi3 Security” innovation is focused on all aspects of its service ranging from the latest mobile app risks that are exposed in new operating system releases by Apple and Google to wearable devices in the Enterprise” stated Kevin Mullenex, Mi3 Security Founder and CEO. “With the support of iOS 8.4 and Apple Watch, Mi3 Security provides its enterprise and government customers with the most up to date ability to identify privacy and security risks before they become threats.”
