Whether it’s a smartphone, tablet, or wearable, attackers are looking to invade mobile devices with malicious intent. And when that mobile device is connected to a company’s data, email attacks that can deposit malware at the click of a link are the easiest and most efficient ways for hackers to take hold of a device and its information.
This practice is called phishing – the use of email messages to disseminate virus-filled software to whichever device the user happens to operate when clicking a malicious link. This is becoming a bigger problem with each passing year for two reasons: mobility and the ability to access email and other online information from the palm of a user’s hand is simpler than ever; and businesses are now relying on mobile devices to enhance productivity for their employees.
It’s a perfect storm of risk for IT administrators and security professionals.
