The Symantec Mobile Device Security (MDS) service, an offering within the Mobility Empowerment Center, extends the same industry-leading threat protection and policy controls available on Symantec appliances to mobile device users wherever they are located. The MDS service is part of the Symantec Cloud Service, a global infrastructure that seamlessly protects employees accessing web or corporate content from any device or network, and provides a network-based approach to protect and control mobile devices on and off the corporate network.
Unlike device-level solutions that simply block entire applications on personal devices, the MDS service allows you to enable mobile devices by applying application and operational controls across both native mobile and mobile browser applications. With network-based granular application controls and web filtering, the MDS service allows you to deliver the access users want and assure the security businesses need. The result is a much more flexible, low-touch approach to securing mobile devices.
