MobilityShield enables organizations to limit access to their Skype for Business (Lync) server to corporate devices only by using an innovative IP Filter (IPF), adding another layer of security to the authentication process.

MobilityShield’s IPF can be implemented at the registration process stage or during ongoing usage of Skype. Registration filtering enables control of the devices that can complete the registration process and filtering of the ongoing controls from which location connection is allowed.

By using our IPF, registration can be limited to a specific IP range that is accessible only from within the corporate network, thus blocking attempts to register a device without joining the corporate network.

MobilityShield’s IP Filter is an ideal solution for organizations that limit the connection to a specific network by using certification or Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions. This allows verifying, for example, that only devices with an installed MDM can use Skype. Applying the IPF to Skype usage can also provide geo-location protection by limiting the connection to specific countries based on IP range.
