While mobile threats are still largely mischiefware and have not yet broken the device’s security model but instead more focused on for-pay texting scams or stealing personal information, the dangers are still rife. This white paper from BlueCoat examines the mobile threat landscape and the behavioral patterns of mobile users that make them most vulnerable to data loss, malicious applications, fraud and other mobile threats.

All indicators are up when it comes to mobility: More devices, more users, more budget, and more applications. Business technology leaders must begin planning now for a security paradigm shift, one that will pull together disparate security policies into a single, user-centric, universal policy that can apply to whatever devices and apps employees use. This white paper from BlueCoat explores the new security challenges mobility trends are creating, and how security must change to meet them.

This whitepaper explains how exploding mobile threats challenge mobile device management (MDM) vendors, carriers, service providers, and app stores to ensure the safety of apps. Consumers and customers will hold these companies responsible for providing adequate security, and employees will expect enterprise IT departments to protect them from malicious mobile apps like they have come to expect for PC malware. The report describes how a cloud-based app reputation service protects against the risks of mobile applications in the wild: • Collects millions of applications from a variety of sources • Stores mobile app data in the world’s largest cloud-based threat database • Analyzes and scores apps on a range from malicious (e.g., known malware such as Trojans or root kits) to trustworth

By next year over half of all US companies will formally support BYOD, bringing on the challenge of securing data and applications on devices that may often be in the hands malicious users, or worse – teenagers looking to win a game of Pokémon Go with mom’s work iPhone. And, thanks to the consumerization of IT, mobile users increasingly expect the same smooth user experience with business applications that is provided by popular games and consumer applications. Fortunately, increased mobility and the bring your own device explosion don’t always add up to increased security challenges and UI/UX struggles. This Tech Byte series will look at the most important considerations when planning a mobile strategy – from application development platform to security and governance to user interface guidelines, and present best practices that businesses of all kinds can use to help ensure a successful shift towards a mobile-first enterprise.

Phishing is defined by the Financial Services Technology Consortium (FSTC) as a broadly launched social engineering attack in which an electronic identity is misrepresented in an attempt to trick individuals into revealing personal credentials that can be used fraudulently against them. In short, it’s online fraud to the highest degree. Although it’s been around for years, phishing is still one of the most common and effective online scams. The schemes are varied, typically involving some combination of spoofed email (spam), malicious software (malware), and fake websites to harvest personal information from unwitting consumers. The explosive rise of mobile devices, mobile applications, and social media networks has given phishers new vectors to exploit, along with access to volumes of personal data that can be used in more targeted attacks or spear phishing. The fact that phishing attacks are still so common highlights their efficacy and reinforces the need to implement comprehensive phishing and response plans to protect organizations. An effective phishing protection plan should focus on four primary areas: Prevention, Detection, Response, and Recovery. High-level recommendations for each of the four areas are outlined in this whitepaper.
