The way we communicate has changed. With cloud apps and mobile devices in hand, huge volumes of messages now flow between colleagues and partners, and families and friends. Any application with messaging functionality has contributed to our ability to stay connected and productive. But with this convenience has created opportunities for threat actors to send malicious messages and take advantage of our trust in these channels.
Tablets and smartphones have enabled us to quickly get work done and manage personal responsibilities. But these devices have also opened up countless opportunities for attackers to send phishing attacks. It’s not just email anymore. SMS, messaging apps or even dating apps have created countless channels to deliver an attack. It doesn't help that mobile devices have smaller screens and a simplified user experience that obfuscate telltale signs of a phishing attack.
The ability to stop phishing is your first line of defense — especially mobile targeting attacks. It only takes one mistake — a single link click or a file download — to lead to a ransomware attack or a data breach. Once malware is delivered or credentials are stolen, attackers can use the compromised device and accounts to move laterally and compromise your sensitive resources.
Your employees want to leverage their mobile devices without needing to worry about every message that comes to their tablet, smartphone or Chromebook. They also expect organizations to respect their personal privacy.

Mobile phishing is on the rise in the enterprise, as proven by the breach of a major social networking platform through a mobile phone spear phishing attack. Mobile phishing has become highly effective and is increasingly difficult to identify and protect against. Traditional security tools lack visibility and protection for the devices employees carry with them every day, which creates gaps in security when it comes to mobile phishing.
