Mobile Security turns into a booming business vertical for Companies!

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) culture of the Corporate World is making businesses see mobile security as a highly productive business vertical these days. As hackers are getting busy in breaking mobile wallets, firms catering to cyber security needs are trying their best to capture this trend to make profits.

Gartner has labeled this market as a new turf offering profitable business opportunities to companies serving “mobile threat defense”. This includes services such as scanning of risky apps and keeping the mobile phone users safe and secure.

As more and more workers are using their personal devices for office purposes, companies serving security applications for employees to install on their Android and iOS phones have augmented recently.

Technically speaking, the task of shielding a mobile device is more difficult than protecting a traditional network.

So, applications allowing their users to gain more control within a virtual corporate network will be in great demand.

For businesses which are trying to tap into the new business opportunity, the best option will be to make platforms in such a way that they help integrate the new threat tools alongside any existing mobile management service. Hence, this gives a bright opportunity for large companies integrating with the standalone security companies in future.

In near future, the increasing presence of the Internet of Things (IoT) will also mean that companies serving mobile security world will have a great time making profits. If companies go with a futuristic and holistic insight, this is surely possible.

Currently, the companies which are making big in the field of Mobile Security are F-Secure, AVG, Kaspersky, Lookout, McAfee, MobileIron, SAP, Sophos, Symantec, and trend micro.

Blackberry, Microsoft, Apple, Google Technology are also showing a lot of interest in researching and developing this field these days.

Consequently, the list might prove never ending to mobile security explorers in coming days.
