Fixmo Sentinel is a mobile device tamper detection and integrity verification solution that ensures your mobile devices start, and remain, in a trusted and compliant state, and that you can prove it at audit time. Through continuous monitoring and state change detection, Fixmo Sentinel provides complete transparency into the actual current state of each device on your network and its adherence to corporate policies and regulatory compliance. And with automated tools for locking or wiping a mobile device in response to a disallowed state change, it helps you prevent security breaches and the presence of unverified third party applications before they result in an exploit or a state of non-compliance.
Fixmo Sentinel has been developed as part of a Co-operative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) and is built on the AutoBerry technology original developed by the NSA for use within the U.S. Department of Defense.
Fixmo Sentinel uses a local device agent to continuously monitor the state of mobile devices in the workplace. Through patented module analysis and state change detection, it proactively detects the following:
IT admins can define policy rules to enable automated remediation actions in response to a security violation or change of state. If a blacklisted application is detected, if the OS is found to be rooted, or if a device configuration file has been tampered with, Fixmo Sentinel can automatically lock or wipe the device without any manual intervention required. On BlackBerry devices, it can even initiate a lock or wipe locally without any dependence on a server-side command so that devices and corporate data remain protected even if the SIM card has been removed prior to the security breach taking place.
Fixmo Sentinel provides centralized reporting for all state-changes and updates that are detected on mobile devices on your network. So when it comes time for a security audit, you have all the data you need to prove the current, and historical, states of each device on your network. It's a powerful solution that automates compliance assurance and reporting across your mobility deployment!

Through the NSA Technology Transfer Program, Fixmo has driven the transition of AutoBerry, an NSA-designed solution for automating tamper detection and compliance auditing for BlackBerry devices, from a government off-the-shelf (GOTS) product to a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solution. Through continuing research and development under its CRADA with the NSA, Fixmo has further advanced the AutoBerry technology to create the Fixmo Sentinel Integrity Services offering for BlackBerry, Android and iOS devices. In addition to the full Fixmo Sentinel solution offering as part of Fixmo EMP, Fixmo also offers Fixmo Sentinel Desktop Edition to U.S. Department of Defense agencies at no cost. Fixmo Sentinel Desktop Edition provides a subset of the features described above and requires devices to be connected to a desktop computer via a USB cable to perform the scans.
Fixmo Sentinel Integrity Services is designed to work in tandem with Mobile Device Management (MDM) systems and other enterprise mobility management solutions. It can work in a fully integrated fashion with the Fixmo SafeLock MDM and Fixmo SafeZone products, and can also be deployed as an integrated component of leading third party MDM solutions thanks to its open API architecture. Contact Fixmo today to find out how Fixmo Sentinel can be deployed with your MDM solution of choice.
