Endpoint security vendor Malwarebytes has announced the release of Mobile Security for OneView to enable managed service providers (MSPs) to protect Chromebooks, Android, and iOS devices against mobile threats such as ransomware and malicious apps. MSPs can now use the Malwarebytes OneView platform to monitor their customers’ mobile phones and tablets alongside their servers, workstations, and laptops, the firm said. They can prevent accidental access to harmful websites, safeguard against malicious apps, block unwanted in-app ads, and enable a secure mobile experience for their customers, according to Malwarebytes.
Mobile devices are rife across modern businesses, with smartphones and tablets rich targets for exploitation and cyberattacks. Nearly half of organizations have been subject to a security incident involving a phone or tablet that led to data loss, downtime, or another negative outcome, according to the Verizon 2022 Mobile Security Index. Malware, social engineering, data leakage, and Wi-Fi interference are among the many mobile security risks organizations face, while novel technologies such as generative AI are predicted to create new opportunities for cybercriminals to target mobile devices.
