Presently, 96% of Smartphone's do not have pre-installed security software. This lack in security is an opportunity for malicious cyber attackers to hack into the various devices that are popular i.e. Android, iPhone and Blackberry. Traditional security software found in Personal Computers (PCs), such as firewalls, anti-virus, and encryption, is not currently available in Smartphone's. Smartphone's are small and are easy to carry anywhere. Unfortunately, the convenience of using Smartphone's to do personal task is the loophole cyber attackers need to gain access to personal data.
