Businesses have been investing heavily in their cybersecurity infrastructure. However, mobile devices in most organizations remain an unprotected asset – an easy way in for opportunistic cybercriminals.
As a result, mobile devices are increasingly involved in security breaches. According to the Verizon Mobile Security Index, in 2019, 33% of companies admitted they’d suffered a security compromise in which a mobile device played a role, up from 27% in 2018. Yet the adoption of adequate mobile security is lagging.
With the threat landscape rapidly evolving, it’s vital that companies take proactive measures to mitigate their attack surface and get a holistic view of their IT infrastructure.
We looked at data from our global network of millions of corporate devices, plus research from third-party sources, to put to rest the common misconceptions that prevent businesses from investing in mobile security.
