Lookout
Lookout is excellent for mobile device security. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a simple solution to guarantee peace of mind when keeping mobile devices secure. It's also excellent for finding a device that's been lost remotely, including an excellent feature for enabling audio on a device when it was put in silent mode locally. The web UI is easy to use and allows for powerful functionality through a simple interface. Lastly, it is an excellent secondary backup solution. I'd recommend having other potential backup solutions as well in case this premium feature ever expires and you aren't sure whether you have a most recent contact backup within Lookout.

Well suited for an organization that is either architecting their environment for majority SaaS usage, or presently is a cloud-first organization and wants greater insight into their existing cloud placements. It does provide good first-level DLP and will need to be supplemented with a purpose drive DLP control.

Pros
Lookout
  • It emits alerts before any vulnerability found, thus avoiding damages.
  • It has a very simple interface so it is easy to use.
  • It allows the protection against vulnerabilities as well as the backup of information and search before the loss of the mobile or theft.
  • It runs in the background so it does not interrupt any activity.
  • Its access is very flexible since only the internet is required to access through the application or web.

Cons
Lookout
  • They're the global, mobile cyber experts we trust. They're ahead of the curve already. All I could suggest is, keep going in that direction.
  • Perhaps, send out an occasional , brief update on global trends that business executives should be aware of, even when Lookout is already on it.
  • Keep it brief, with a case study where a proactive action was taken and an event was avoided. Those would be shared enterprise-wide.
  • More PR about your proactive actions would be educational for us all. NO FUD, will ever work, but seeing that there are actions we can take, even to the newest of threats will be very effective.

There have been some struggles with their infrastructure keeping pace with demand and load. Support can only do so much and has to defer to known problems being escalated.

Alternatives Considered
Lookout
Lookout was chosen by T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T which many employees have chosen as their mobile network provider. From that standpoint, it made it a simple decision. Its cloud based technology gives insight across almost all mobile code in the world. Lookout identifies connections that would otherwise go unseen without deep investigation. It helps prevent cybercriminals from sneaking into mobile devices and that's the key component for any mobile security solution. MobileIron and other competitor solutions have a similar offering, but based on network provider support I haven't need to look into the competition extensively.

We felt that Netskope provided a more holistic view in the CASB space from a user and usage perspective. In addition, the cost structure for Menlo was a bit higher and was a bit more complicated in the installation and maintenance perspectives

Return on Investment
Lookout
  • Security is often hard to translate into ROI terms. However, having an option to locate a device does mitigate a possible large expense in fines or other issues with loss of data.
  • Minimal cost/support needs, does not significantly impact support staff. So can add support without additional costs.
