mobile device security

Security measures designed to protect the sensitive information stored on and transmitted by smartphones, tablets, laptops and other mobile devices. Mobile device security spans the gamut from user authentication measures and mobile security best practices for protecting against compromised data in the event of unauthorized access or accidental loss of the mobile device to combat malware, spyware and other mobile security threats that can expose a mobile device’s data to hackers.

Most mobile devices feature mobile operating systems with built-in mobile device security features, including iOS for iPhones and iPads, Google's Android platform and Microsoft's Windows Phone. Additionally, a variety of third-party mobile device security solutions are available for providing an additional layer of protection for mobile devices.
