Why We Created Emsisoft Mobile Security

You’re Unprotected

Practically nobody uses mobile security software. This is a perfect storm environment for financially motivated hackers. The barriers to entry are extremely low, and propagation is a cinch. Just about anyone who knows how to write a computer virus can write one for the mobile world. Although most malicious apps are distributed through alternative app stores, developers need only a valid Google account, $25 and a credit card to publish on Google Play, too.

It’s a Fact

Mobile devices are malware money-makers. 

It’s a Personal Threat

Mobile malware is more than just a numbers game – mobile devices are the tools we use to organize our mobile lives. When these tools are hacked, they can be reprogrammed to act just like an infected PC. Mobile devices are different than PCs, though. Mobile devices are intimately connected to almost everything we do. Mobile devices follow us. We keep them in our pockets and our purses. They guide us, entertain us, and connect us – no matter where we are or who we’re with.

Mobile devices are part of us, and when they are attacked it’s personal.

 

What Can Happen

Q:

22% of the world’s population owns a smartphone or mobile device. 20% owns a computer. If you were creating malware, and wanted to infect as many people as you possibly could, which platform would you choose?

A:

Mobile Malware

While an extra 2% might not seem like much, it would actually give you access to an additional 140 million devices. Furthermore, it’s been shown that SMS messaging fraud – the most prevalent type of mobile malware attack– generates around $10/per infection, immediately. That’s a potential 1.4 billion dollars in additional revenue.
