Harmony Mobile's key features include:
App protection: The platform detects and blocks the download of malicious applications in real-time. It runs the application in a cloud-based environment and tests it by leveraging techniques such as sandboxing, advanced static analysis, anomaly detection, and other techniques. By doing so, it prevents malware from infiltrating employees’ mobile devices.
Network protection: The platform’s unique infrastructure extends Check Point security capabilities to mobile devices. It includes features such as anti-phishing, safe browsing, conditional access, anti bot, and URL filtering.
Simple and easy to use management: Check Point Harmony Mobile integrates with almost all mobile management solutions (MDM/UEM), and supports BYOD programs and remote work settings. It delivers scalability and efficiency with zero-touch deployment. The system works for all Android deployment models. The management console is cloud-based, delivering visibility over the risk posture and enabling admins to roll granular policies.
User friendly: The platform is easy to adopt, with no disruption of the user experience or the device's usability. The system delivers detailed threat notifications in real time as well as weekly reports. The platform doesn’t impact battery life or data consumption. Additionally, it keeps the user and corporate data private without collecting or analyzing personal information. Finally, the platform anonymizes the context metadata from apps and networks it uses for analysis.
Check Point Harmony Mobile Components
Behavioral risk engine: The engine uses data received from the app about the network, configuration, and OS data integrity, detects and analyzes suspicious activity, and produces a risk score.
