Attackers couldn’t have asked for a better vulnerability than users’ devices. In today’s work-from-anywhere economy, phones, tablets, and even smartwatches are always connected and rarely secure. Because while users want to stay connected, they loathe having security teams installing apps or poking around in their devices. That need to stay connected and to keep security at arms’ length creates a larger, weaker attack surface. And threat actors are taking notice: The Verizon Mobile Security Index found that mobile-related compromise doubled from 2021 to 2022. More than 80% of ransomware attacks originated on unmanaged devices over the past year. An organization’s security is only as strong as its weakest link—and devices are buckling.
Why is that? Does always connected have to mean always vulnerable? And how could an attack that originates on a personal device spread throughout an organization?
Join our webinar with RSA Senior Director of Product Management Dave Taku and Zimperium SVP of Corporate Development JT Keating to:
• Learn about global trends in mobile and device security
• Understand the tactics cybercriminals use to attack users’ devices
• Watch how a breach could begin with one compromised device and spread throughout an organization
