Mobility App Review: Lookout – Intelligent mobile threat protection

Lookout could become the next big vendor in the field of malware threat protection. They have a unique approach that is based on a huge network of users already using the Lookout app.

I first met Lookout in Cologne, Germany. One of their representatives explained to me that they protected devices from malware by analyzing the installed apps. My first thought was, it’s one of the many app security vendors that create app catalogues and categorize apps by the level of threat. The levels are: no threat, potential threat and infected. We met again at CeBIT and I had the chance to dive deeper. Then, I understood the difference and their value add. Lookout has been around for 9 years and started with a consumer app that helped users to protect their devices from malware, find their devices in case of loss or theft and backup their data (contacts and photos) to the cloud in case the device breaks or gets lost. Photo upload and also an automatic warning email, that is sent to you in case suspicious actions like taking out the SIM card or turning on flight mode are detected, are premium features. Even though, for photo upload, we already have cloud services like iCloud, Google Drive and One Drive, it is still nice to have, just in case the other backups weren’t turned on.
