Mobile threats are real, and growing fast

We commissioned the “Seven Uncomfortable Truths” survey recently and it highlighted that of all detected threats, one in 10 was found on a mobile device.

That shouldn’t be a surprise – right now, in fact, we probably all have a mobile device with us with access to email. The more reliant we are on a mobile device, the more we increase the risk of that device being the place where a threat first lands. The more emails you open, the higher the chance you might click on a phishing link, for example.

This statistic highlights that we should be taking mobile device security seriously if we want to prevent and detect threats at the earliest possible opportunity.
