Gartner Market Guide for Mobile Threat Defense 2018
Published By - hitechnectar

Key Findings:

  • The Mobile Threat Defense market continues to have organic growth. Beyond a unified endpoint management (UEM) security add-on, MTD is also used to address use cases such as mobile phishing, bring your own device (BYOD), app vetting and compliance.
  • Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) solutions prevent or detect threats against iOS and Android platforms by employing a variety of techniques, including machine learning and behavioural analysis based on mobile threat intelligence.
  • Enterprises are still fine-tuning their risk perception and maturity around mobile. While they start to recognize the value of MTD solutions, they do not show particular urgency to adopt them.

Recommendations:

To address mobile risks, security and risk management leaders should:

  • Introduce MTD solutions gradually. Adopt Mobile Threat Defense solutions sooner in high-security verticals, with large Android device fleets, or in regulated verticals, such as finance and healthcare.
  • Leverage app vetting and device vulnerability management MTD functionality first to demonstrate immediate value to the organization.
  • Integrate the MTD solution with the UEM tool. Prefer app-based deployment, leaving proxy-based deployment options for corporate-owned business-only (COBO) scenarios.
