The battle at the endpoint - phones, tablets and mobile computing - faces an endless onslaught of malware delivered from websites, bots, and pretty much any other malicious code that can be thrown at endpoints. Why are the endpoints always under attack? Simple, when they are off corporate networks there are no firewalls, no IPS, none of the enterprise grade protection that exists in a corporate environment. You and I know this, unfortunately so do the bad guys. Understanding this helps us understand why these devices are frequently targeted by malicious individuals and organizations. It is good to think of the endpoints as the new perimeter.
