KDDI America hosted a security event, "Exploring Network and Mobile Security", on September 22, 2011 in New York City.
One of the keynote speakers at the event was Troy Vennon, the Director of the Global Threat Center from Juniper Networks.
Troy presented the current state of mobile security in the workplace based on research conducted by the Global Threat Center. Information were provided to address the vectors of exploitation relating to mobile devices, including: malware, direct attacks; loss and theft; and data communications interception; and exploitation and misconduct.
With the widespread adoption of smartphones, there are now dramatic changes associated with the actual usage of mobile devices - downloading applications to increase productivity and providing entertainment; mobile online banking and commerce; and, mobile devices that store amounts of data equal to those of laptop computers. In essence, smartphone devices have become the new personal computer, with one important differentiator. While most personal computers come equipped with anti-virus and other endpoint security software, the vast majority of mobile devices perform the same functions, devoid of security protection.

This mobile security app is a comprehensive security software suite that protects mobile devices and defends users' mobile life, securing sensitive data stored on mobile devices that are used for work, play or both.
