Wandera has uncovered severe mobile data exposures that affect a high proportion of enterprises. Try it now for free

Many thanks to the great folks at Wandera, who have sponsored my writing for the last week.

Wandera's 2017 Mobile Leak Report found more than 200 mobile websites and apps leaking personally identifiable information across a range of categories – including those that are essential for work. Your employees might have been exposed to credit card theft, identity theft, or even the re-use of login credentials to access a corporate network.

Read the 2017 Mobile Leak Report to see which types of apps present the highest risk to your sensitive corporate data.

Mobile is indisputably the new frontier for cyber threats, as adoption of corporate mobility continues to grow, so too does the number of attacks. Businesses have become increasingly exposed to new threats, vulnerabilities and data leaks.

Wandera provides enterprise-grade threat defense against these mobile security risks, keeping devices secure across all four levels of protection as identified by Gartner. Try Wandera for free to assess and understand what is happening with your mobile data.

Wandera works with some of the biggest and best-loved brands in the world. Find out how your business could also benefit by having devices protected and managed at the data-level.
