The goal of the model is simple: provide a path forward and enable enterprises to periodically assess security postures and defensive opportunities. The model has five maturity levels: Visibility, Restricted Access, Proactive Risk Management, Advanced Risk Management, and Unified Security.
Each maturity level guides threat focus areas, policy recommendations, milestones, and security scores to achieve the intended level of protection. The higher the maturity, the higher the security efficacy against mobile attacks and threats. Once a level of maturity is determined, the next steps include measurements, metrics, and specific outcomes. This is a valuable tool to strategize, execute and communicate across the organization to address mobile risks.
