Gartner has recently published a report Avoid Mobile Application Security Pitfalls (July 27, 2020). The report provides essential guidelines for organizations how to avoid data breach stemming from mobile devices.

“Mobile application security failures are increasingly responsible for fraud and enterprise breaches,” says the report. It emphasizes the global concern about growing data breach events in which hackers use apps and malware installed on employee’s smartphones to access enterprises’ IT infrastructure.

Providing guidelines for app developers, the report stresses the importance of incorporating hardened security in the app’s architecture. Among the most common threats to enterprises are these:
• Not enough secured applications that enable hackers to obtain sensitive data contained in those apps;
• Infiltration of the organization’s IT network through the employees’ mobile devices;
• Fraudulent financial transactions in which hackers use a variety of methods, including malware installed on mobile devices, to secretly steal credentials.
