Mobile device security

Mobile device security refers to the policies, procedures and tools for securing mobile devices.

Attacks targeting mobile devices have increased and will continue to do so, as we integrate mobile devices into our lives.

The protection of mobile devices and data stored on them should be a high priority for your organization. Ensure that policies and procedures are updated to cover mobile devices. The advice for keeping PCs secure applies to smartphones and tablets, as well: keep software updated, be cautious about installing new apps, use current security software and investigate suspicious activity. Mobile device management systems can help organizations centralize many of these functions.
