The time has come for enterprise risk management to change. Mobile devices have become core to our personal and professional lives, yet more enterprises remain focused on traditional PC endpoints. Although many of the same elements of risk that affect PCs also apply to mobile endpoints, simply extending current PC security controls to your mobile fleet is ineffective.
Enterprise risk management needs to evolve to address mobile risks, and security professionals must architect mobile-specific security. To encourage this evolution, Lookout developed the Mobil Risk Matrix to help security organizations understand the spectrum of risk on mobile devices and to provide data that demonstrates the prevalence of mobile risk.
