Lookout expands partnership with Google Cloud to deliver zero trust security

David Richardson of Lookout

Lookout, Inc. has expanded its partnership with Google Cloud to deliver endpoint-to-cloud security for organisations worldwide. Under this agreement, Lookout has delivered BeyondCorp Alliance product integrations and debuted its Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security solution on Google Cloud Marketplace.

Lookout will bring additional choice of security capabilities for customers on Google Workspace, helping them mitigate the risk of endpoints compromising corporate data.

In early 2019, Lookout joined the BeyondCorp Alliance, a group of Google Cloud partners that share its Zero Trust vision. Lookout delivers essential requirements of the BeyondCorp security model, including device inventory, state and security posture. These are essential to making context-aware Zero Trust access decisions.

Customer benefits include:

  • The Lookout BeyondCorp Alliance Integration with Google Workspace and Google Cloud BeyondCorp Enterprise Solution to Deliver Zero Trust Security From Endpoint to Cloud is Now Available 

For an organization to fully protect its data, it must assume that no endpoint is trustworthy until its security posture is verified. Failing to verify and continuously assess an endpoint’s security posture can lead to corporate data leaks and breaches.

Lookout Continuous Conditional Access continuously assesses the security posture of Android, Chrome OS and iOS endpoints, and delivers it via API to Google Workspace or Google Cloud’s BeyondCorp Enterprise enabling dynamic modification of access controls.

The integration of Lookout Continuous Conditional Access and Google Cloud Identity protects corporate data in Google Cloud’s BeyondCorp Enterprise and Google Workspace applications including Drive, Docs, Sheets and Slides.

Continuous Conditional Access, a capability within the Modern Endpoint Protection module of the Lookout Security Platform, is available in the Lookout Essentials package.

  • Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security is Now Available on Google Cloud Marketplace 

Under a single billing arrangement and using Google Cloud committed spend, Google Cloud customers can now purchase Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security on Google Cloud Marketplace

Widespread adoption of Chromebooks, tablets and smartphones has changed the way corporate data is accessed and stored. The shift to remote work accelerated the use of Google Cloud and Google Workspace, making mobile security critical to securing corporate data.

Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security is the only solution built for mobile from the ground up by applying artificial intelligence to telemetry data from nearly 200 million devices and over 145 million apps. 

“Our strategic partnership with Google Cloud will deliver industry-leading endpoint-to-cloud security,” says David Richardson, vice president of product, Lookout. “Enabling productivity from any endpoint in any location is critical in today’s remote-work environment. We are proud to deliver on the BeyondCorp mission to accelerate and simplify the adoption of a Zero Trust model that enables organisations to stay secure, agile and productive.”

“We’re committed to providing customers with the technology, support, and partner solutions they need to ensure they have choice when it comes to security,” says Manvinder Singh, director of technology partnerships at Google Cloud. “We’re delighted that Lookout will expand its integrations with Google Cloud and make its Mobile Endpoint Security solution available on Google Cloud Marketplace, bringing customers additional choice and security capabilities as they expand their cloud footprints.”

The Lookout and Google relationship began in 2008 when Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security became available on the Google Play store. In 2019, Lookout became a member of the Google App Defense Alliance to protect users from potentially harmful applications by stopping them before they ever make it onto the Google Play Store.
