More people are working from home than ever, and that’s a reality that’s unlikely to change. Even before the pandemic, your employees were likely using phones and tablets to work on the go. Unfortunately, each of those devices has unique security vulnerabilities. How does your organization’s remote device security stack up?
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.
