This infographic was designed by internet security experts at Adaptive Mobile to illustrate the many threats facing the mobile ecosystem and the future of interconnected devices.
Mobile is the primary way in which friends communicate and businesses interact with their customers.
Unfortunately, as powerful a communication tool as mobile can be, criminals have been quick to notice opportunities and exploit these mobile dependencies, both by repeating specific attack types seen mostly in fixed networks as well as creating new, mobile specific network attacks.
The mobile ecosystem is incredibly vulnerable to threats, most of which are constantly evolving. Because of this, mobile security needs to be of critical consideration. To make matters worse, users themselves are still learning to use mobile and due to the rapid pace of the technology, consumers are struggling to educate themselves on how to stay secure.
As threat vectors evolve and attacks get more sophisticated, Adaptive Mobile predicts a rapid evolution in threats to global mobile security. Enterprises will experience both widespread and targeted attacks, resulting in daily life impacts for the regular person.
