3 Mobile Security Problems That Most Security Teams Haven’t Fixed Yet
Workplaces continue to expand beyond the walls of the traditional office building and out into unsecured environments, increasingly relying on mobile devices. But as mobile usage increases, so do the security risks. According to the “Verizon 2020 Mobile Security Index Report,” 67% of organizations say they are less confident in their security than their other IT assets, and 33% admit to having suffered a compromise involving a mobile device.
Even as enterprises begin to allow more and more access to sensitive information via mobile devices, there remain three mobile security problems that most security teams have yet to fix.
- Allowing malware to be a distraction, when the real threat is mobile phishing
- Misunderstanding application security
- Trusting your mobile operating systems
