"Mobile devices constitute a majority of global web traffic as organizations across industries allow employees access to corporate information using mobile devices. This increased use of smartphones to access corporate network makes it a lucrative platform for cyber criminals. MDM solutions are good at separating corporate data from the users’ personal data and in distributing and managing corporate applications. However, no MDM solution is designed with an intent detect and prevent smartphones from advanced cyber-attacks and threats," he explained.
Abideen believes that with with partnership, Evanssion will be able to offer the VAD's partners and customers, a real-time and comprehensive defence solution for mobile threats.
