Likelihood to Recommend

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.

GlobalProtect Mobile Security Manager

As long as you have a corporate standard it is relatively easy to configure and can be easily trained on. It falls short when there are a variety of devices and scenarios to support. The “one offs” make it more difficult to support and upgrade.

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.

  • Authentication rules can be made as strict as required to satisfy stringent audits.
  • Easy for end users.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Lookout

Lower cost, and gets the basic to tracking devices. The backup feature and ease of use is good.

Return on Investment

Lookout

  • Lookout has minimized lost devices, by essentially enabling all users to find their device no matter where it may be lost. Almost all devices are recoverable with Lookout installed and an ability to get to the current location of the device. This prevents excessive replacement device costs.
  • If a device cannot be physically recovered all personal data on the device can be wiped remotely. This reduces data breach risk for a lost/stolen device.

GlobalProtect Mobile Security Manager

  • It is a bit expensive to utilize to its full extent with other Palo products.
  • The GUI is nice and is easy to train on.
