[Infographic] The Growing Need of Mobile Threat Defense

The ever-growing pertinence of mobile devices and our increasing dependency on them is like a coin with two sides – at one end, the benefits and convenience provided by mobile devices, in both personal and professional world, are matchless and totally extendible, but on the other side, mobile devices have the capacity to expose sensitive data to the wrong people who can do us irreparable harm. The risks and threats posed by cyber-criminals, hackers and identity thieves are now dangerously real.

The fact is, as mobile technologies are getting more and more sophisticated, so are the advancements in new attack vectors that the cybercriminals are exploring to fulfill their malevolent intentions. However, with the expanding mobile threat landscape, companies too have become aware of the impending attacks and hence have started to embrace a mix of on-premise and cloud-based services to decentralize data storage. On top of it, the adoption of next-generation mobile threat defense mechanisms and antivirus solutions has prepped the companies to fight against malware-based risks.

October is the month dedicated to National Cybersecurity Awareness – a collective effort taken by the US government and corporate industry to spread awareness about the criticality of cybersecurity and the measures businesses need to take to keep their mobile/online data safe from any threats. This specific Infographic will elucidate the growing cyber threat landscape, its impact on enterprises and ways to fight it back. Considering this year’s underlying message – Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT, you can relate to the insights and facts we conveyed through the illustration.
