New Partnership of Unique Technologies Enables and Secures Mobility

COLUMBIA, MD and ATLANTA, GA, Feb 22, 2012 -- AirPatrol Corporation and Mobile Active Defense (MAD) are announcing a significant mobile device and security management partnership to increase mobile security intelligence for the enterprise. Both companies will be at RSA booth 2247 with a live demonstration of highly granular geo-location-based mobile policy enforcement in San Francisco next week. AirPatrol and MAD have chosen the technologically advanced conference to be fitting for the announcement.

"MAD is the industry leader in mobile device security and its partnership with AirPatrol is the natural evolution of securing mobility to the most stringent levels," stated Tom Kellermann, CTO and Chief Cybersecurity Strategist of AirPatrol. "It is now essential to have a policy on a device that protects and enables it concurrently, based upon its physical location. The explosion of blended attacks demands unique technology partnerships."

AirPatrol adds contextual awareness to mobile security, allowing for the appropriate security policy to be on a mobile device at the right time and place. MAD's Mobile Enterprise Compliance and Security solution secures the mobile enterprise to the most stringent compliance and security standards. Integration of AirPatrol's contextual information such as location to MAD's complete encryption, granular firewall controls and suite of anti-virus, malware and device management tools brings new levels of security and enterprise possibilities to mobile devices.

Both AirPatrol and MAD were awarded significant awards for achievement in 2011: AirPatrol was named in InformationWeek's "Top 10 Mobile Security Vendors to Watch" and MAD was named SC Magazine's "2011 Innovator of the Year in Mobile Device Protection" and "Best Buy 2011." With two strong players in the mobile security industry, this partnership recognizes the future is in both location-based and context-aware computing.

Rob Smith, co-founder and CTO of Mobile Active Defense, added, "Enterprises should be able to secure their mobile population with the same level of assurance they do their fixed enterprise. Both MAD and AirPatrol are real security companies, not just MDM vendors. Our partnership with AirPatrol brings unique and unprecedented control to mobile device administrators."

About AirPatrol: AirPatrol is the first and only security company whose technology can continuously monitor any mobile device on cellular and Wi-Fi channels in an enterprise, determine its compliance with security policy, enforce the appropriate policy on the device in real time and dynamically empower the device's capabilities for the situation regardless of who the user might be.
