Smartphones that are allowed on enterprise IT infrastructure should be treated the same as any laptop or workstation
As businesses around the globe adopt mobility and allow mobile device usage to increase productivity and profitability, cyberattacks continue to grow in sophistication and frequency. Today, majority of security professionals doubt their organizations can prevent a breach to employees’ devices. In the meantime, more than 90% expect the frequency of mobile attacks to expand.
Trends are that mobile attacks will increase in proportion and sophistication in the years ahead. For perpetrators the world of mobile devices holds great potential: they are easier to hack and they possess even more sensitive information than PCs.
From all industries, financial services and government are the biggest targets. This is when compared with other industries like Manufacturing, Retail, Telco or Technology.
The financial services sector is and will continue to be a primary target of cybercriminals, followed by government agencies, as these two sectors protect the most valuable assets. As long as the mobile market is composed of two dominant players, iOS and Android, malware will continue to target both and try to penetrate their defenses. This is why we believe that companies should be protected by comprehensive mobile security solutions.
Comprehensive mobile security should be a system of components that work together cohesively to identify a wide variety of threats and to protect data while addressing employee privacy concerns. Only solutions that can analyze behavior across all vectors for indicators of attack can protect mobile devices effectively to keep them safe.
Check Point SandBlast Mobile is a multilayered security infrastructure that provides comprehensive protection. It identifies threats using on-device, network- and cloud-based algorithms and triggers automatic defense responses. Its cloud-based risk engine identifies suspicious patterns and behaviors over time by sandboxing apps in an emulator and detecting threats at the device, app, and network levels. The infrastructure integrates with existing security investments to support incident response and provide continuous protection. As a result, organizations always have an accurate picture of the types of threats that devices on their network face, as well as detailed information about what is being done to mitigate those risks.
