Mobile Device Security Puts Companies at Risk
Janco Associates has issued a warning that mobile Internet users are facing a rapidly escalating threat from hackers and spy-ware. As the computing capacity and the popularity of small mobile devices and gadgets has increased, so has the risk of attack from other mobile devices and computers, creating a growing threat of mobile users losing their privacy or confidential business data.
In interviews with the several CIOs, Janco found that CIOs were concerned about how they can adequately manage the risks introduced by mobile devices. In addition, they feel that security is the greatest obstacles to rolling out more smart devices.
For example, there is no anti-virus protection for mobile devices. In the case of the iPhone there is not even a spam filter it is all dependent on the email provider. Add to that that it is estimated that the number of new smart phones and tablet PCs would outpace desktop computers and notebooks. Users and business should have security applications in place, such as encryption, in order to protect their mobile devices from data threats and illegal access.
Security Manual Template Updated to cover Mobile Device Access and Use
Janco has just updated its Security Manual Template to address issues faced by enterprises by defining acceptable access and use policies that can be implemented quickly . It addresses issues such as how to manage in today's threat driven environment.
