Endpoint security provider Malwarebytes has announced the release of Mobile Security for OneView to enable managed service providers (MSPs) to protect Chromebook, 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 along with their servers, workstations and laptops, the firm said. According to Malwarebytes, they can prevent accidental access to harmful websites, protect against malicious apps, block unwanted in-app ads, and enable a secure mobile experience for their customers.
Mobile devices abound in modern enterprises, with smartphones and tablets rich targets for exploitation and cyberattacks. Nearly half of organizations have experienced a security incident involving a phone or tablet that resulted in data loss, downtime or another negative outcome, according to Verizon’s 2022 Mobile Security Index. Malware , social engineering, data exfiltration and Wi-Fi interference are among the many mobile security risks facing organizations, while new technologies such as generative AI are expected to create new opportunities for cybercriminals target mobile devices.
Protection against malware and malicious apps among mobile security features
Malwarebytes Mobile Security enables MSP teams to centrally view activity across Chromebook, Android and iOS devices in real-time, monitoring and protecting customers’ mobile investments, and understanding and mitigating risks to their mobile devices, Malwarebytes said in a press release. Key features include:
- Real-time threat protection against emerging threats for Chromebook, Android and iOS
- Advanced antivirus, malware and antispyware protection for Chromebook and Android
- Malicious app protection and app privacy auditing for Chromebook and Android
- Safe web browsing and ad blocking/tracking for iOS
Malwarebytes Mobile Security also offers pre-built sales and marketing kits that include sales briefs, messaging guides and social media posts for companies offering mobile security as a service.
Malicious apps are a major threat to mobile security, AI to fuel attacks
Malicious apps that look legitimate are cited as one of the top mobile security risks in McAfee’s 2023 Consumer Mobile Threat Report. According to the report, cybercriminals are getting better at sneaking their apps into stores, often using encryption to hide malicious code from reviewers or adding delays so malicious content only appears after it passes security checks. safety Some apps download additional malicious code after installation, while cybercriminals can infect legitimate apps by placing their code in third-party code libraries.
According to McAfee’s mobile threat research team, mobile security threats are expected to grow with emerging technology such as OpenAI’s ChatGPT AI chatbot and DALL-E 2 imager AI in 2023. Phishing scams, disinformation and deep fakes are likely to become more sophisticated and believable.
