About Skyhigh Mobile Cloud Security

The Skyhigh Mobile Cloud Security (SMCS) allows you to extend protection to mobile devices using Skyhigh Web Security Gateway Service (WGCS), based on Cloud Application Control policies. After you set up SMCS, software on mobile devices redirects HTTP/HTTPS traffic to WGCS for filtering. Settings that WGCS uses to filter HTTP/HTTPS traffic are configured in Cloud Application Control policies.

SMCS supports Android and iOS devices and third-party Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions from VMware, Ivanti Neurons, and Microsoft Intune. MDM solutions consist of client software that is installed on mobile devices and server software that administrators configure to manage the devices.
