"In 2014, mobile will become the attack vector of choice for cyber-criminals, as the number of Android threats alone is expected to climb to more than 3 million. As cloud-based applications and BYOD policies become mainstream, both employees’ and companies’ sensitive data are at risk. Our comprehensive solutions will keep this information safe without impeding the mobile experience."
