What additional steps are you taking to prevent the rush of malware/rougue apps targeting your android smartphones?
bcastle 2 years ago
The good old days when there wasn't much focus on smartphones by "bad guys" are over. I've just read a study by Juniper Networks that indicates Android malware has increased by 472% over the past three months. 472%!?! I had to read that number twice. This shows just how quickly malicious individuals have responded to the rapidly rising popularity of smartphones, especially Android models. So are you taking any new steps to address this increased level of risk, or just sticking with what you have been doing?
