The Spectrum of Mobile Risk

The Spectrum of Mobile Risk

Nov 1, 2020

The time has come for enterprise risk management to change. Mobile devices have become core to our personal and professional lives, yet most enterprises remain focused on traditional PC endpoints.

Although many of the same elements of risk that affect PCs also apply to mobile endpoints, simply extending current PC security controls to your mobile fleet is ineffective.

Enterprise risk management needs to evolve to address mobile risks, and security professionals must architect mobile-specific security.

To encourage this evolution, Lookout developed the Mobile Risk Matrix. Its purpose is to help security organizations
understand the spectrum of risk on mobile devices and to provide data that demonstrates the prevalence of mobile risk.
