Security Threats to Mobile Devices

Hackers Swarm to Mobile Devices

Know Your Threats

by Stephen Nardone | 02.04.16

As IT struggles to get out in front of enterprise security risks, mobile devices are adding another wrinkle to defense plans as they become an increasingly active attack vector.

Then came the influx of smartphones and tablets and everything changed. Thanks to rise of the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) movement, Gartner is predicting the primary endpoint breach to be tablets and smartphones by 2017, with the majority of transgressions tied to mobile application misconfiguration and misuse, not traditional technical attacks.

Windows 10

Windows 10 has been having great success with its silicon partners, especially with Intel’s new Skylake processor. If you compare the partnership of Intel’s Skylake with Windows 10 versus other Windows 7 systems, the performance is unmatched with 30x better graphics, 3x better battery life, and improved security with features like Credential Guard using silicon supported virtualization.

At the same time, Microsoft wants to be transparent as they change their focus to a partnership between Windows and silicon. So on January 15th they made an announcement that made recommendations for businesses who are looking to upgrade to new systems that feature Intel’s Skylake processor and an addition to its support policy for Windows 7/8.1.
