The smartphone continuously revolutionizes the way we work, stay connected and informed. Smartphone users now spend nearly 3 hours per day on their devices to send and download sensitive data and communicate with the office. However, the simplicity, ease and default behavior also makes mobile devices susceptible to tampering and hacking.
Mobile devices do have built-in security features but they unable to detect and warn you when they are actively being attacked or hacked by an outsider.

With the number of vulnerabilities in mobile operating systems increasing and the cost of mobile breaches reaching up to $1,000,000, it’s time we secure the device we spend the most time on.
