Mobile Endpoint Security Issues For CISO’s

The most disperse and difficult security challenge for CISOs is ensuring that the thousands of endpoints in their organization are secure. Laptops created an enormous boost to productivity but came with security risks. Just as security professionals solved the problem, an entirely new endpoint arrived that had some threats that were similar, but others that were entirely new, different and increased organizational risk. This new endpoint came in the form of a phone or tablet and had access to or contained the same information as traditional laptop or desktop endpoints. Today, roughly 60% of an organization’s endpoints are mobile with very little if any security. You wouldn’t consider leaving laptop/desktop computers unprotected, yet thousands of mobile endpoints accessing organization information do so with little security.

As it turns out, there are 7 primary mobile endpoint security issues CISOs face. The first three are similar to traditional endpoints (but need to be secured differently) and four are unique to mobile:

  • On-device, machine learning-based mobile security for device, network, phishing and malicious app attacks;
  • Quickly and invisibly embeds as an SDK inside apps resulting in 100% security adoption;
  • Has negligible overhead and minimal permission requirements.

Enterprise Grade Mobile App Security In Less Than 10 Minutes

With the zDefend SDK embedded, mobile apps can immediately determine when a user’s device is compromised, any network attacks are occurring and even if malicious apps are installed. App developers can configure appropriate remedial actions when a given threat is detected. Configuration scenarios include:

  • 1. Corporate Email
  • 3. Ransomware
  • 5. Executive Locations / Calendars / Contacts
  • 7. Username / Passwords
  • 2. Corporate Apps
  • 4. Microphone / Camera
  • 6. Entry Point To Network
