Bitdefender, a global cybersecurity leader, today unveiled GravityZone Security for Mobile, designed to provide organizations with advanced Mobile Threat Detection (MTD) and security for Android, iOS and Chromebook devices, including Chrome extensions. The new offering helps enterprises, managed service providers (MSPs) and their customers gain deep visibility into their mobile footprint to prevent, protect, detect and respond to cyberattacks targeting mobile devices, applications, and operating systems.
With more than 6.8 billion smartphones in use around the world, attackers have ample opportunities to exploit vulnerabilities and target unsuspecting users. Enterprise organizations across all industries are under increasing pressure to adopt mobile security capabilities as mobile threats, particularly phishing, ransomware, and zero-day attacks grow. According to the 2023 “Market Guide for Mobile Threat Defense” report by Gartner®, “By 2025, more than half of organizations in regulated industries will have a security solution for both iOS and Android devices.” The report states, “Most importantly, we do have evidence that some of the largest recent attacks included at least one step that involved mobile devices.” ¹
“Enterprises continue to rely on a remote and dispersed workforce who use personal devices to connect to company networks and resources which has opened up an often-vulnerable attack surface,” said Andrei Florescu, deputy general manager and senior vice president of products, Bitdefender Business Solutions Group. “Cybercriminals increasingly target mobile devices as an entry point for attacks. It is critical for organizations to have an advanced mobile threat detection solution as part of their broader endpoint security strategy. GravityZone Security for Mobile is another example of how we are delivering trusted threat prevention, protection, detection, and response across all platforms to help organizations secure data and strengthen their cyber resilience.”
Bitdefender GravityZone Security for Mobile provides advanced MTD and protection against mobile attack vectors. Leveraging Bitdefender’s industry-leading antimalware and advanced threat intelligence solutions, GravityZone Security for Mobile enables organizations to vet applications, monitor device status, protect against malicious apps, phishing attacks and more to strengthen their overall cybersecurity posture.
