Lookout Security App Becomes FirstNet Listed
Thursday, March 28, 2019 | Comments

The Lookout for Work app is now First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) Listed and available via the FirstNet App Catalog.

Lookout for Work protects first responders from the entire spectrum of mobile risk. Cyberattacks against first responders are a persistent threat. Phishing, social engineering, identity theft and insurance fraud are common attacks during a natural disaster or a state of emergency.

Compromised devices could enable unauthorized access to sensitive systems and confidential databases. Ransomware can also lock officials out of mission-critical systems, or data could be exfiltrated to be resold or repurposed in additional attacks. There is even a physical safety risk for public-safety officers whose personally identifiable information (PII) could be exposed in doxxing attacks. “With the volume of mobile threats and risks growing across all vectors of attack, including apps, devices, content and networks, organizations need mobile security that can keep up with the rapidly changing threat landscape,” said Firas Azmeh, vice president of distribution partnerships at Lookout. “Only Lookout delivers protection based on threat intelligence from a network of more than 170 million devices and 70 million apps, which allows us to spot attacks and see connections in code that others can’t.”

Lookout for Work can be integrated with existing Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) and Mobile Device Management (MDM) platforms to create holistic mobile protection for organizations that subscribe to FirstNet. With integrations to Okta, VMware and other technology providers, Lookout delivers post-perimeter security and compliance to digital workforce without compromising productivity, privacy or user experience.

“When we learned about the added level of security Lookout could help bring to public safety, we knew it’d make a great addition to the FirstNet App Catalog,” said Bob Sloan, chief operating officer (COO), FirstNet Program at AT&T. “FirstNet is public safety’s network, and we’re proud to support them with the Lookout mobile defense solution.”

There are two categories of FirstNet apps. The first is FirstNet Certified, which is the highest level of vetting. A FirstNet Listed designation is easier to achieve, although the apps still have security, relevance and data privacy reviews.
