Beyond malware: a new world of cyber threats

In today’s business landscape, cybercriminals have become more sophisticated, employees are bombarded with more apps than they can handle, and data has become currency. This is putting pressure on enterprises to make investments and strategy adjustments necessary to get ahead using mobile threat prevention.

Now more than ever, CIOs and CISOs and their teams need tools and techniques that enable flexible delivery of apps, content, and resources across devices – whether they are supporting bring your own device (BYOD), choose your own device (CYOD), or a corporate-liable device environment. And they need options for mobile threat defense that fit within the confines of their strategy. 

Through IBM MaaS360® with Watson™ UEM, AI analytics provide real-time, actionable risk insights, native malware detection keeps an eye on suspicious apps, and Wandera Mobile Threat Defense supports informed, conditional access to enterprise apps while also responding to network, user, device, app and data-level threats before they strike.
