Mobile devices with businesses provide excellent benefits, providing your employees, partners, and supply chain with instant access to your business-critical applications, anytime and anywhere. However, according to respondents to Verizon’s 2021 Mobile Security Index, “Three-fifths (60%) of respondents said that they think that mobile devices are the company’s biggest IT security threat. Of the rest, 85% said mobile devices are at least as vulnerable as other IT systems”. For a workforce that’s highly dependent on the use of mobile, that presents a critical gap in security.
Mobile devices have also become widely targeted by adversaries, mainly due to the numerous ways to breach them, including a lack of phishing protection and tiny mobile screens that leave out important details as they prioritize enhancing the user experience. To truly protect mobile data, organizations need to build holistic security strategies that consider the mobile environment and how threats move across and into endpoints, networks, and the cloud.
