Common Security Issues on Mobile Devices

Common Security Issues on Mobile Devices

Mobile devices demand a special type of attention in order to ensure security. You want to ensure that your devices are protected as well as possible, but you also need to ensure that this does not come at the expense of your employees’ productivity or efficiency. We’ve put together a list of common security issues you might encounter when securing your mobile devices, as well as a couple of practices you can implement to work toward an adequate level of cybersecurity for your mobile infrastructure.

Malicious Applications

Mobile applications will be crucial to productivity with your mobile devices. Just like how laptops and desktops run software and programs, mobile devices require applications for various tasks, including data storage, file access, communication, productivity, and many more. You can usually find these applications on the designated app store for Android or iOS, but you might have to dodge a couple of malicious applications in the process. Make sure you are downloading the appropriate app from a trusted developer rather than a fake, malicious one.

Unsecured Connections

Mobile devices will be connecting to wireless networks in order to dodge the use of mobile data for every little task, but the problem with most public wireless networks is that they are unsecured and susceptible to attacks from all sorts of threats. Even if they are secured, they likely are not secured appropriately, and hackers might be able to intercept or view data traveling to and from your device.

Lost or Stolen Devices

One of the major challenges of mobile devices is the fact that they are… well, mobile, and as such, more likely to be lost compared to your traditional in-house technology solutions. It’s easy enough to misplace a smartphone or laptop, and it’s just as easy for a thief to walk away with it if you take your eyes off of them long enough. 

Security Solutions

To keep your mobile devices from becoming a major pain in the neck from a security standpoint, we recommend that you implement the following solutions and measures. They will go a long way toward keeping your business and its data safe.

  • Mobile Device Management: An MDM solution gives your business the power to control app downloads and permissions on devices, all while remotely wiping lost or stolen devices as needed. It makes keeping track of your company’s mobile devices as easy as can be.
  • Virtual Private Networks: A VPN is a powerful security tool that gives your mobile devices access to an encrypted connection to your business’ data infrastructure. This means that a hacker won’t simply be able to steal data while it’s in transit, and if they do, they will have to deal with military-grade encryption to make heads or tails of it.
