Securing corporate data on mobile devices is no longer an option. If there is one thing that 2020 has taught us so far, is that organizations need to be prepared to go fully remote and mobile at any given time, thereby accelerating a trend that was already happening in 2019 when the analysis that led to the publication of this report was conducted. In the words of Frost & Sullivan “the increasing media attention to mobile security issues, BYOD adoption, along with the GDPR and PSD2 regulations are some of the key factors that will drive the demand for MTD solutions in the near future”. They also note that “while malware still appears to be a considerable threat for both Android and iOS platforms, mobile phishing has become one of the major security challenges that users of Apple devices are facing today”.
