Overview:

Mobile malware – the next big security threat

Organizations are being transformed at an unprecedented pace with mobility. The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend continues to spread in the enterprise. Mobile apps are creating new and efficient workflows for employees. Seamless access to work data, emails and content is growing in parallel, enhancing the productivity gains from these trends.

As a result of the popularity and speed at which mobile devices have become a mainstay of the enterprise, hackers and thieves are targeting mobile devices with malware, creating the next big security threat. Corporate data is especially vulnerable to rogue apps and malicious websites.

  • 138 billion apps were downloaded in 2014
  • Mobile malware is growing. Malicious code is infecting more than 11.6 million mobile devices at any given time
  • Recent WireLurker and Masque attacks threaten iOS devices
  • Damage to a company’s brand is compounded by financial loss, with the cost of a single breach estimated at more than $11 million

IT and Security leaders need a modern and robust security solution to proactively detect, analyze and remediate mobile malware.
