Cybersecurity company Lookout Inc. today announced an expanded partnership with Google Cloud to deliver endpoint-to-cloud security to organizations around the world.
Under the new partnership, Lookout has delivered new BeyondCorp Alliance product integrations and debuted its Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security solution on Google Cloud Marketplace.
BeyondCorp is Google LLC’s implementation of the zero-trust model, a security framework that involves shifting access controls from the perimeter to individual devices and users, enabling employees to work securely from any location. Lookout has been a member of the BeyondCorp Alliance since early 2019.
With the integration, Lookout is bringing additional choice to security capabilities for customers on Google Workspace to assist them in mitigating the risk of endpoints that may compromise corporate data.
Customer benefits include Lookout BeyondCorp Alliance Integration with Google Workspace and Google Cloud BeyondCorp Enterprise Solution to deliver zero-trust security from endpoint to cloud. The integration with Lookout Continuous Conditional Access allows users to continuously assess the security posture of Android, Chrome OS and iOS endpoints. The service delivers the data via an application programming interface to Google Workspace or Google Cloud’s BeyondCorp Enterprise enabling dynamic modification of access controls.
Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security is also now available on Google Cloud Marketplace, supporting a single billing arrangement using Google Cloud committed spend. The solution, built for mobile from the ground up, applies 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,” David Richardson, vice president of product at Lookout, said in a statement. “Enabling productivity from any endpoint in any location is critical in today’s remote-work environment.”
The announcement comes as Lookout, a venture capital-funded company that has raised $282.3 million, goes from strength to strength. The company was named as a top-five cybersecurity “unicorn,” valued at more than $1 billion, by CCIE in Weeks in March. Founded in 2007, it’s a likely candidate for an initial public offering in the next year or two.
Notable Lookout clients include Google, AT&T Inc., Verizon Communications Inc., Vodafone plc, Microsoft Corp. and Apple Inc.
