This report examines enterprise security threats for iOS
and Android. While Android has higher consumer market
share, iOS commands more market share in the enterprise,
accounting for 72% of enterprise mobile activations in Q1
2015 compared to Android’s 26% activation share1
The perception that iOS is more secure has helped drive
its enterprise adoption, but this perception comes largely
from security trends observed in the consumer space.
Android, with a more open mobile platform and 81%
global market share2
, predictably invites more broad-based
attacks than iOS.
When it comes to iOS and Android in the enterprise,
however, both need threat protection because at a
fundamental level both platforms are subject to similar
vulnerabilities and attack methods. iOS attacks may be
relatively uncommon today, but they have happened and
can occur. Moreover, enterprises increasingly rely on iOS
app-distribution methods that forgo Apple’s app-review and
they face the risk that attackers will cont

Read "Understanding the State of Network Security Today" to learn why ESG recommends consolidating security tools through a structured, platform-based approach. Data, analytics and reports from multiple tools can be aggregated and consumed in one control panel, reducing network vulnerabilities. Learn more about challenges, changes and best practices for today’s network security operations and tools. Read now.
Information security based on regulatory compliance stipulations cannot keep up with today’s sophisticated and rapidly changing threat landscape. CISOs need to implement a new discipline that ESG calls, “Real-time Risk Management."
Exploit kits, which first became popular in 2006, are used to automate the exploitation of vulnerabilities on victims’ machines, most commonly while users are browsing the web. Over the past decade they have become an extremely popular means for criminal groups to distribute mass malware or remote access tools (RAT), because they lower the barrier to entry for attackers and can enable opportunistic attacks at scale. To understand this phenomenon, we must understand the ecosystem that surrounds exploit kits, including the actors, campaigns and terminology involved.
On March 10, 2008, F5, a leader in application delivery, and WhiteHat Security, an innovator in application security assessment, announced they would be partnering to create an integrated Web application assessment and firewall technology. This product integration will incorporate WhiteHat’s Sentinel assessment technology and F5’s ASM attack blocking technology into a single solution.

Learn about the security and compliance vulnerabilities of governing identities and segregating access with the concept of roles, and discover how governing at the entitlement level can improve access control.
Discover how to automate controls and reporting, and manage orphan accounts to ensure that former users don’t retain access after they leave the organization.
IBM Security Identity Governance and Intelligence gives you better control over access with visibility into entitlements - not just roles.
Learn why replacing servers is often delayed. Confronted with competing business priorities, limited budgets and personnel, and a sense of comfort as current servers reliably hum along, delay is easy to rationalize. Yet, delays are not without risk and trade-offs. Cases in point are two circumstances that small and midsized enterprises should seriously consider and, in our opinion, initiate action now. Discover why the new era of cyber warfare aimed at exploiting hardware vulnerabilities and the End-of-Support for Windows Server 2008/2008 R2 means delaying server replacement leaves SMB IT open to risk.

Mobile devices have rapidly become ground zero for a wide spectrum of risk that includes malicious targeted attacks on devices
and network connections, a range of malware families, non-compliant apps that leak data, and vulnerabilities in device operating
systems or apps.
Read the four mobile security insights CISOs must know to prepare for a strategic conversation with the CEO and board about
reducing mobile risks and the business value associated with fast remediation of mobile security incidents.
The evolution of cyber threats ad the cybercriminal community has evolved from the days of pranksters launching annoying viruses and spam that would be considered primitive today.
While enterprises make concentrated efforts to protect their critical data, the lack of correlated and contextual network visibility can leave IT security organizations unable to prioritze the threats that matter the most.
Three common types of software make you more vulnerable than you realize. While complete and thorough vulnerability management is next to impossible, a few simple steps go a long way toward reducing risk. Download this ebook to discover what steps to take to begin evolving away from patch management toward software and vulnerability management.
The hidden threat in securing your infrastructure from vulnerabilities lies with IT’s difficulty in managing third-party software.
2017 was billed as the worst on record for cybersecurity. No doubt, the continued rise of modern threat vectors has IT on high alert. In essence, IT professionals view their role as responsible for keeping the door shut. However, even with IT administrators keenly aware that most exploits can be averted simply by keeping the environment current, the task is no small feat and often isn’t done as well as it needs to be.

Enterprises and users continue to be concerned about mobile apps and mobile malware because they have been trained by legacy antivirus software packages. Look for a known malware file and remove it.
The issue with this logic on mobile devices is the mobile operating systems evolve and add features very rapidly. The mobile operating systems add millions of lines of code in a year and therefore introduce unintended consequences, bugs and vulnerabilities. In 2017, there were more CVEs registered for Android and iOS than all of 2016 and 2015 combined. In 2017 there were 1229 CVEs awarded. Over half of these CVEs that received scores of 7 or greater indicated that the vulnerabilities are severe and exploitable. This trend is expected to continue as the mobile operating systems mature and more features are added.
