According to an IDC study entitled “Mobile Security in Germany 2017”, only 58 percent of the companies surveyed have a central concept for information security that covers ALL systems and devices. Our experience shows that mobile devices in particular tend to be neglected. This, however, is a serious risk – not just because these devices are being used more and more, but also, and in particular, because the threat of an attack on smartphones and tablets is significantly higher than on desktop devices. Why is this? And what can you do to protect your business and data? Find out in this blog post.
Inadequate security precautions
Lack of monitoring options
More sophisticated attacks
Many points of entry
Private and business use
Recommendations for mobile security
Mobile devices are therefore a lucrative target for hackers. They offer access to sensitive data and are comparatively easy to hack, as e.g. their users can be induced into making mistakes. It is therefore important for you to take the necessary security precautions for your business, so you can take advantage of the benefits that mobile devices can unquestionably provide.
- Implement an Enterprise Mobility Management Solution that enables you to manage all your mobile devices and take security precautions. Or use a container solution that keeps private and business data separate and, in the event of a cyberattack, provides the option of erasing the data from the device. There are also special solutions available that allow preventive measures to be taken, mobile attacks to be detected and countermeasures to be initiated.
- Make your employees more aware of the subject and choose practice-related approaches. After all, theory-based seminars and policies rarely achieve the same result as a live hack that impressively demonstrates how easily it is to fall prey to an attack.
