Introduction

Mobile computing devices such as tablets and smartphones enable a high degree of connectivity and
productivity that employees now expect in their jobs. Frost & Sullivan research demonstrates how
pervasive mobile is becoming. Recent research provides the following insights:2

• Nearly three out of every four organizations issue corporate-owned laptops ( %) and
smartphones ( %) to their workforces; while almost half issue tablets ( %).
• Android has taken a surprising lead as the most common mobile operating system supported
for organization-owned devices (at %); followed by iOS ( %); Windows Mobile ( %);
and BlackBerry ( %). The landscape is changing dramatically in this industry.
The use cases of mobile devices result in different risk than traditional PCs. The availability of
Internet-based application stores provides uniquely mobile conduits for mobile malware, with
Android malware being the favored mobile attack vector. Research by the United States Computer
Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) confirms that the majority of known mobile threats target
Android devices.
