Mobile & Messaging Security
Mobile security, or more specifically mobile device security, has become increasingly important in mobile computing. Of particular concern is the security of personal and business information now stored on smartphones.
All smartphones, as computers, are preferred targets of attacks. These attacks exploit weaknesses inherent in smartphones that can come from the communication mode—like Short Message Service (SMS, aka text messaging), Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS), WiFi, Bluetooth and GSM, the de facto global standard for mobile communications. There are also exploits that target software vulnerabilities in the browser or operating system. And some malicious software relies on the weak knowledge of an average user.
Security countermeasures are being developed and applied to smartphones, from security in different layers of software to the dissemination of information to end users.
Messaging Security is a program that provides protection for companies’ messaging infrastructure. The programs includes IP reputation-based anti-spam, pattern-based anti-spam, administrator defined block/allow lists, mail antivirus, zero-hour malware detection and email intrusion prevention. Ransomware, email fraud, and email downtime threaten your business and your bottom line. Your current tools might help with some aspects of email security or stop some attacks. But you need to solve your entire email threat problem, not just parts of it.
Proofpoint Email Protection provides multiple layers of security to stop malware and non-malware threats, such as email fraud. It can control all aspects of inbound and outbound email to detect and block threats, and prevent confidential information from getting into the wrong hands.
Mimecast’s Advanced Email Security with Targeted Threat Protection uses multiple, sophisticated, detection engines. Mimecast provides a diverse set of threat intelligence sources to protect email from spam, malware, phishing, and targeted attacks delivered as a 100% cloud-based service.
The digital transformation has created a cloud-first and mobile-first world, greatly increasing the amount of mobile data transiting between mobile devices, applications, servers, etc. As a result of companies digitalizing their frameworks and services, corporate and personal data are now extensively accessed by mobile devices, exposing them to a whole new range of mobile threats: data leakage, data theft, malware, network exploit, device manipulation.
