Study Shows Smartphones Account For 60 Percent of Mobile Malware


Stop and think about the company-issued smartphones that your employees use to access their work email accounts. What else are these devices being used for?

They’re used to find restaurants in Brooklyn after work, and to buy products on Amazon. They’re used to browse social networks like Facebook, Tinder and Craigslist. And this is just the tip of the iceberg; smartphones are used to streamline just about every task in today’s mobile-driven world.

With this in mind, it’s no wonder that smartphones are now accountable for as much as 60 percent of the malware that winds up on mobile networks. Most workers simply fail to recognize the multitude of risks that come with using company-issued smartphones for leisure activities.

The question then becomes: What can your organization do to mitigate the risks? Blocking certain websites or applications won’t work; after all, the last thing you want to do is start telling your employees what they can and cannot do on their phones. Conversely, sitting back and hoping that your network won’t become infected is not advisable.  

Here’s what you can do: Implement a mobile device management (MDM) solution through a provider like Apex Technology Services.

In doing so, you can put mobile management in the hands of a team of certified professionals. Apex will ensure that all of your devices are equipped with critical security updates, and are free of malware. An MDM solution will also allow you to set up data management rules to ensure that specific files cannot be accidentally accessed or shared.

So don’t delay—contact Apex Technology Services of New York City today to learn more about how a robust MDM solution can protect your company.
