Mobile Device Security 2011-2016: Opportunities and Challenges
The Rise of Mobile Malware

2011 is witnessing an explosion of new threats targeting mobile devices. Data and ID theft, SMS fraud, rogue apps and covert espionage are infecting smartphones at an unprecedented rate. Malware such as Trojans, worms, spyware and spam are spreading across mobile platforms, already highly capable of stealing data, corrupting functions and usurping control.

Visiongain research shows that the number of mobile malware more than doubled in 2011 from 2010 with over 200 new variants in the first half of 2011 alone, out of a total of 800 since 2003.

Securing the Mobile Ecosystem

Cybercriminals are actively exploiting the popularity of smartphones and tablets because of low user awareness of the risks, and lax security enforcement within organisations. This real and growing mobile threat is already a critical issue for the business segment and which CEOs must addressed now.

By 2016, visiongain expects that almost every employee will have a smartphone that supports e-mail, can access the internet and install a variety of applications. Organisations have to learn to support complex and varied mobile operating systems and efficiently manage the security of all these platforms if they want to leverage the productivity benefits of smart devices.

A Growing Mobile Security Market

Security concerns are driving a fairly new market in mobile protection. The mobile security market is still in its infancy however. The fragmented nature of the mobile OS landscape has allowed for a number of varied companies to offer different mobile security solutions. Most of the leading IT software security specialists have expanded their suite of PC solutions to include mobile devices.

In parallel, a number of smaller security experts specialising in mobile devices have appeared and their niche area of expertise have been on par with many established IT software security leaders. There is a small but fast-growing market specialising in mobile security which will gain momentum with the rapid adoption of smart devices and mobile internet in the face of a growing cybercriminal menace. Visiongain expects the mobile security market to reach $3.95 billion in global revenues by 2016.
