“Several signs continue to indicate that mobile security issues are growing in both volume and importance:
- Nearly one out of five business and industry apps leaks personally identifiable information (PII).
- Every year, 42 million mobile malware attacks take place.
- 63% of grayware apps leak the device’s phone number.
Furthermore, enterprises believe mobile malware attacks occur more often than is reported. In a recent Gartner survey, 60% of respondents stated they believe mobile malware incidences are underreported. To the same question for desktop malware incidences, respondents stated they believe only 16% are underreported.”
