Security comparison between containers and Endpoint Protection Mobile
Last Updated January 19, 2018
Your organization uses containers for its corporate resources, and you want to know if this is a sufficient security solution.
While Symantec believes that containers can bring some IT value, they do not offer comprehensive security. They also struggle with user experience (UX).
Container (like dual-persona) solutions rely on separation, not protection. If the device is compromised, the entire model breaks. Hence, the need for a holistic offering, including detection and protection against mobile threats.
In addition to the inherited security gap, there’s an even bigger gap. Business cannot really be contained today: WhatsApp, Linkedin, and many other tools that we use daily for private activities are also great tools for business. Some solutions try to address user experience challenges by creating a bridge between the personal and business personas which opens doors to additional security vulnerabilities and threats.
Symantec Endpoint Protection Mobile (SEP Mobile) gives you all the security and visibility you need, while allowing your employees to use the apps they want to use without relying on dual personas.
