State of Enterprise Mobile Security Report July 2019
Mobile devices continue to be the target of attack at increasing rates. There is a relatively simple explanation for this - in a typical organization today, 60% of the endpoints containing or accessing enterprise data are mobile; the majority of which do not have any security protection today. It is no longer a matter of if or when an enterprise’s mobile endpoints are at risk--they already are.
Mobile devices contain or have access to the same information as traditional endpoints. While billions of dollars have been spent protecting and securing traditional endpoints, very little has been invested to protect mobile device endpoints. Attackers work on the same model as any other business: where do they get the greatest return on their investment of time and resources. As a result, mobile devices have become a favorite attack target and that trend is not likely to decrease any time soon.
This report examines threats that increase the likelihood of a device being attacked, as well as actual attacks against mobile endpoints.
