Mobility is no longer a trend — it's our new reality. Organizations are increasingly providing users with mobile devices, such as smart phones, to facilitate faster communication and greater productivity. With the convenience of mobile phones also comes an increased security risk for organizations. The combination of smaller screens, multi-tasking users, and limited visibility in mobile browsers (i.e. not being able to hover over links), creates ideal conditions for end users to click on malicious links. When over 70% of malware is unique to each organization, signature-based endpoint AV tools are not enough. 85% 1 of attacks seen on mobile devices occur outside of an email inbox in media like SMS messaging, where advanced detection tools and overwhelmed security teams lack visibility. The challenges to delivering and managing a secure experience to mobile users in this new reality can consume far more time, effort, and resources than IT and security teams can afford. So how do you protect your roaming users on devices running the world's most popular mobile operating system? It's quite simple: make sure they always carry Cisco Umbrella.
