Hypori Virtual Mobility, Intelligent Waves' subsidiary that specializes in securing BYOD devices of critically sensitive data, has released its “Top Mobile Device Cybersecurity Safety Trends to Watch in 2021,” What Employers and Employees Need to Know to Stay Safe, the company reported on Wednesday.
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the nation’s workforce has shifted to a work from home environment, increasing the usage of mobile devices. With the transition, cybersecurity threats have increased with the amount of sensitive data hosted on mobile devices.
Hypori’s report has addressed mobile device security trends, including long-term strategies, effective digital tools, location independence to support remote work and resilience against global cybersecurity threats.
The company’s report found that cyberattacks will focus on remote workers, as increased mobile device use continues. Hypori also noted that corporate chief information security officers (CISOs) will face increasing issues with limited or decreased budgets making efficiency, cost-effectiveness and centralized management critical.
In addition, the report highlighted that the Healthcare and Financial Services industries will face greater cyber attacks. Moving into 2021, financial services industry exposure will increase as bad actors capitalize on lucrative opportunities and out-of-date legacy systems.
Hypori also found that COVID-19 will force more sophisticated overall digitization for businesses, with an increased demand for user-friendly enterprise-wide mobility solutions that are secure, centrally managed and budget-conscious.
