How mobile use cases in financial services are affecting security


Financial services organizations are increasingly exposed to cyber threats, according to Wandera.

The report “​Mobile Security in the Financial Services​,” includes analysis of six months of security data from 225 financial services customers with 50,000 devices collectively under management.

Notable findings

  • There were 4.7 million events across the subset of devices analyzed over the 6-month period, averaging around 21,000 events per organization, on mobile alone
  • Financial services organizations are experiencing a higher volume of phishing attacks than their peers outside the vertical (57 percent compared to 42 percent cross-industry)
