Technology is improving all the time and the people rely on their cell phones and other handheld devices. The people use them not just for making calls, but also sending emails, organizing meetings, and surfing the World Wide Web. Modern mobile devices can cope with all the functions that an average computer can do. The purpose of this paper is to introduce a research proposal designed to explore the network security issues concerning mobile devices protection. Many threats exist and they harm not only computers but handheld devices as well. The mobility of phones and their excessive use make them more vulnerable. The findings suggest a list of protections that can provide high level of security for new mobile devices.
