Mobile Security in a Remote World
Attacks on the endpoint are no longer limited to traditional endpoints like laptops and workstations; mobile devices have been ranked the #1 hardest enterprise asset to defend. Compounded by bring-your-own device policies, enterprises are struggling to protect themselves against a growing variety of mobile threats. In this session, we will dive into the challenges with securing mobile in the enterprise security space and the evolution of mobile device security. Join us to learn about why attackers are shifting to target mobile, validated by investigations from the Cybereason Nocturnus team, and how the enterprise security industry is moving to address them.
