    Check Point Harmony Mobile Key Features

    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.

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.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Kadeem C., an IT Security Analyst at an energy/utilities company, says, "I really like the application scanning portion where it scans your current applications and any new applications that you add to the device to let you know if it is malicious."

    Oleg P., Senior Network/Security Engineer at Skywind Group, says, "The most impressive thing is the SSL VPN Portal."

    Hans V., an Engineer at Caldoo, adds that “We've found that the product is quite stable."
