Up to 32% of companies would place that security in a second order of priorities.

 

Is mobile security a priority for businesses, now that attacks on smartphones and other devices are the order of the day? It depends on the company.

According to the Mobile Security Index 2018 of Verizon , and as communicated from ESET in a press release and a post of WeLiveSecurity, practically a third of organizations ( 32% ) puts security on mobile devices in the second order of their priorities .

In addition, there are a minority that implement the four cybersecurity practices specified by Verizon, which are the modification of passwords included by default, encryption of communications in public networks, guaranteed access for employees according to needs and proof regulate security systems. This would only be 1 in 7 companies.

There are also a minority (4 out of 10) that combine the default password modification and the use of two-step verification. Less than half use encryption. And only a third use endpoint security on mobile phones. In addition, only half have a policy for the use of public Wi-Fi.

Sacrificing mobile security in favor of other things, such as performance, has its consequences, such as companies end up being more likely to suffer damage to their equipment and loss of information . < / p>
