Today Wandera, a leading mobile security company recognized by both Gartner and IDC, announced the launch of an advanced feature as part of its Mobile Threat Defense solution.

Phishing is the #1 mobile threat affecting organizations at the moment. With more than 50% of all Internet traffic coming from mobile devices, it’s no surprise that attackers have turned their attention to mobile employees and the wide range of communications apps and sites they use.

That’s why Wandera have advanced MI:RIAM’s phishing algorithm with next-generation machine learning to proactively seek out, recognize, and block phishing attacks before they hit their first ‘patient zero’. The algorithm is complex, and relies on a variety of input factors to determine if a web page is in fact malicious. Numerous points of data are analyzed and taken together to generate a risk score which ultimately determines if the page is flagged and blocked.

“Our machine learning engine MI:RIAM analyzes billions of mobile inputs each day using a wide range of data science techniques. When it comes to phishing, MI:RIAM has a proven industry-leading 98% efficacy of recognizing and proactively blocking mobile phishing attempts.” said Michael Covington, VP of Product Strategy at Wandera.

For those keen to take advantage of the new feature, it has been successfully rolled out as part of Wandera Mobile Threat Defense. For those not already using the solution, you can sign up for a free demonstration of the new report at wandera.com/get-in-touch/.
