Last week, the Juniper Networks Mobile Threat Center released its 2011 Mobile Threats Report, which shows evidence of accelerating threats targeting mobile devices. Findings include a 155 percent increase in mobile malware across all platforms, as compared to the previous year. Attackers are looking for the largest return on investment and thus targeting the most popular platform: in the last seven months of 2011 alone, malware aimed at the Android platform rose 3,325 percent.

 

Today, mobile devices are being used in many of the same ways as a personal computer. They have become the vehicle for day-to-day corporate and personal tasks – from email and Facebook to banking and critical business and government applications. As such, mobile devices require the same protections as a PC.

Mobile World Congress - Redefining Mobile, Defining My Year

by Juniper Employee ‎02-20-2012 03:04 AM - edited ‎02-20-2012 10:34 AM

For me, Mobile World Congress (MWC) is like a birthday or Christmas – inasmuch it’s an annual milestone of my year, orienting me to the seasons. I have to say, it has thrown me a bit this year, being so much later in February, the first Valentine’s Day I have spent at home in years! Nonetheless, here we are, about to go to Barcelona again, an industry event focusing on “redefining mobile”  - and I can’t wait!

 

As a networking industry veteran, my early memories of MWC (or 3GSM World as it used to be) go back to its original home of Cannes, in the South of France. In those early days Juniper Networks based its activities on a beautiful boat moored in the harbour (the narrow, slippery gang-plank entrance/exit uncluttered with any handrails was always a heart-stopping moment, especially as it was in the days of large, heavy laptops that threatened to alter the carrier’s centre of gravity radically without warning).  Our presence at the show then was perfectly valid but somewhat peripheral – and as my memories of heavy laptops prove, the days of truly mobile computing were yet to come. Network infrastructure for fixed and mobile worlds were siloed apart, and the idea of data-rich applications and content via your mobile phone and/or a smart device was beyond the

horizon.
