If asked about one thing that you wouldn’t be able to live without in this age, what would it be? For most of us, the answer to this question would be ‘a mobile phone,’ which has now become an essential part of our daily lives like anything else that we need to lead a comfortable life. From ordering food and grocery shopping to renting a house or even finding a job, a mobile phone is a touchpoint for almost everything today.

Over five billion people around the globe use mobile phones and tablets, which accounts for more than half of the world’s internet connections. The number of mobile subscribers has increased exponentially and by 2020, it is expected to be around 5.7 billion along with 9.7 billion SIM card users.
Though smartphones make any service easily accessible, they also bring along the risks of security threats. About one third of mobile devices are susceptible to cyber threats such as scams, phishing, bad content, identity theft, clickjacking, or other threats that make these devices an attack vector.
While these figures clearly highlight the rising need for mobile security, several industry players are grappling to keep up with it. This proves to be a challenging task, especially for enterprises that promote bring your own device (BYOD), use of social media, and personal use of mobile devices at workplaces. A German cybersecurity provider, cyan AG protects such entities with a one-stop mobile security solution. The company renders unique white-labeled solutions via a B2B2C channel, ultimately enabling end customers to protect their mobile devices.
