In the world of cyber security, malicious software attacks have become endemic. Malware will continue to plague businesses for the foreseeable future. However, the increase in remote access work has made it crucial to apply the same cyber defense protection to all your endpoint devices, even smartphones. Hackers love to attack smartphones because most of our phones now store large amounts of much of our most private data. All kinds of private information, including passwords, bank accounts, credit cards and other personal details, are stored on smartphones and have become easy targets for cybercriminals. Also, as new devices are added to networks all the time, the target landscape for hackers continues to grow daily.
