As attackers get more creative, mobile threats and attacks increase in both quantity and impact
A new report by Zimperium highlights the growing threat of cyberattacks targeting mobile endpoints. According to the study, device threats affected more than one in four (27%) mobile endpoints in enterprises. Over two-thirds (68%) of malicious profiles involved elevated access that enabled attackers to exfiltrate data or compromise the network.
Nearly all (93%) network threats and 86% of all threats were man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks. Network attacks targeted one in ten mobile endpoints in enterprises, while a third of those endpoints interacted with risky networks.
