This whitepaper explains how exploding mobile threats challenge mobile device management (MDM) vendors, carriers, service providers, and app stores to ensure the safety of apps. Consumers and customers will hold these companies responsible for providing adequate security, and employees will expect enterprise IT departments to protect them from malicious mobile apps like they have come to expect for PC malware. The report describes how a cloud-based app reputation service protects against the risks of mobile applications in the wild: • Collects millions of applications from a variety of sources • Stores mobile app data in the world’s largest cloud-based threat database • Analyzes and scores apps on a range from malicious (e.g., known malware such as Trojans or root kits) to trustworth

This whitepaper discusses a major new threat vector — “phishing 2.0.” While many IT professionals have become less concerned with phishing as it seems these attacks only fool naive consumers, a new generation of sophisticated phishing attacks now target businesses. These phish evade traditional antivirus and antiphishing products. Using targeted information — often gathered from social media sites — they fool even security-savvy employees into divulging sensitive information or visiting websites that infect machines with dangerous malware. Learn more about: • Uncovering phishing emails and phishing websites in real time • Limiting the amount of personal information employees expose on social media sites • Leveraging the world’s largest cloud-based threat network

This Webroot whitepaper compares deploying secure web gateways as software or appliances on-premises vs. as a cloud-based service. Lower cost, fast implementation, rapid scalability and less administration are all good reasons to adopt SaaS and cloud-based applications. In addition to these benefits, cloud-based secure web gateways can also provide better security and faster performance than appliances or local servers. It discusses a number of advantages of cloud-based solutions that appliances cannot match, such as: • Better defense against zero-day threats and spam servers • More comprehensive signature and URL database • Supports remote users more securely and without the cost of putting servers in every location
