Threat research process

An example of how Wandera discovers, blocks and reports bad apps.

1 | Identify

Anomalous traffic in network connections is identified by MI:RIAM, our advanced threat intelligence engine.

2 | Discover

Traffic comes from an unknown app, which appeared on multiple devices, yet wasn’t from an official app store.

3 | Monitor

The devices with the app installed are monitored for unusual activity.

4 | Investigate

Through our monitoring, a command-and-control service is identified and an investigation commences into its functionality.

5 | Remediate/protect

To protect other customers from being infected, we block access to distribution servers and prevent further data exfiltration from infected mobile devices.

6 | Communicate

We communicate the findings so others can implement the necessary protections.

Our responsible disclosure policy

We follow an industry-standard responsible disclosure policy to ensure security issues are promptly resolved and made known to the public.
