This report can’t come at a better time. Mobile security has become a top concern for every company these days, and for a good reason. While working from home, employees are increasingly accessing corporate assets from their smartphones. Without robust mobile protection, sensitive corporate data is vulnerable to modern and sophisticated attacks. And no, Mobile Devices Management (MDMs) solutions are simply not enough…

This trend is also acknowledged by Phil Hochmuth, Program Vice President for Enterprise Mobility at IDC: “As Mobile threat management (MTM) technology is evolving from a corner case/niche product deployed mainly by government and high-security/regulated industries into a more mainstream, widely adopted security technology in the enterprise.”
