Today at Citrix Synergy 2017, I’m presenting a Meet the Experts session called “Mobile Threat Defense: What is it, and where does it fit in your mobility strategy?”
If you’re at Synergy in person, come join me from 2:45 to 3:15 in Synergy Park, Theatre II. If you’re following the show remotely, I’ll post a replay link as soon as it’s available.
In my session, I’ll be mentioned quite a few reports, resources, and statistics, so I’m linking to them all here in this companion article.
What’s the session about? Here’s the abstract:
“For years, we’ve been hearing reports about the rise of mobile malware. Yet conversely, mobile devices and apps are inherently much less susceptible to many of the security issues PCs have faced. Unless you’ve been downloading Android apps from unofficial sources, you probably haven’t had any problems in almost a decade of iOS and Android usage.
“Lately, mobile threat defense industry has been on the move. Usage is finally starting to edge up, and high-profile partnerships are forming.
“In this Meet the Experts session, Jack Madden will lay out what you need to know about mobile threat defense, mobile app reputation services, and put it in the context of enterprise mobility management and Apple and Google’s efforts.”
