Introduction

Over the last few years malware has become a widely known, fear-inducing security concern for enterprises globally. It’s only halfway through the year and 2017 has already seen its fair share of high profile malware attacks, including the proliferation of ransomware variants like NotPetya, WannaCry and SLocker.

Businesses are worried but a great deal of this fear comes from a lack of knowledge surrounding malware. Most companies don’t truly understand what malware is, or how exactly it can infiltrate and attack their devices and ultimately, their data.

Organizations tend to rely on security companies with products they don’t quite comprehend to protect them. Speak to any business with an IT team, it’ll say it has a security solution in place. And yet, some of the most high profile companies in the world are falling victim to these rogue malware attacks. What are they missing?

In order for a security solution to be successful, it must protect the business from all angles. A person wouldn’t lock the front door for example, without bothering to lock the back one. Desktops and laptops tend to have the highest level of protection from things like malware, but what about mobile devices? Phones and tablets are just as, if not more susceptible to malware, and they tend to carry just as much sensitive corporate information. This report will explain, in human terms, what malware is, how it works, and why your mobile fleet might be at risk. It will take you through the most common malware infection vectors, the different types of mobile malware currently plaguing organizations and how to take the appropriate steps to protect your mobile fleet.
