Criminals may not have physical access to your device – but that won’t stop them from hacking your device remotely to steal sensitive and confidential data. The BYOD revolution is here to stay and enterprises need to adopt mobile security best practices that can help prevent cyberattacks like Shellshock, WireLurker, and now DoubleDirect. iOS and Android devices provide convenience to users and enterprises alike – a gateway to work, play, friends, colleagues anytime, anyplace. Whether you are working from home, a coffee shop, or even from your hotel room half-way around the world – you can access your CRM system, corporate email, voicemail, access cloud services, manage your online banking, and more.
This extreme level of convenience just means organization’s need to be able to manage the new risks and challenges that come with embracing this productivity boosting technology! Unsecure devices can lead to a number of security risks as customer data, ERP credentials, SFDC logins, passwords and more are traveling across WiFi networks and between devices like never before.
With 2014 coming to a close, security professionals are already predicting that 2015 will be the year previously undetected mobile attacks go mainstream. What does this mean for you? What does this mean for your business?
We all know the productivity benefits of mobile devices:
• Boost productivity with accessibility to corporate services and files
• Work anywhere, anytime, anyplace – with freedom to roam
• Stay connected
The challenge is these amazing mobile devices are vulnerable to cyberattacks:
• Mobile malware – it’s not just for Android anymore!
• Devices can be lost or stolen
• Hackers can prey on WiFi networks to intercept data that can compromise an organization
We’re addicted to our mobile devices and have become reliant on them for work and play. Regardless of whether you’ve adopted a mobile security strategy or are still researching the various ways to secure mobile devices within your organization, you first need to understand the security threats that come along with BYOD.
