CISOs focus on mobile devices as weakest link


Mobile devices have replaced network security threats as the focal point of cybersecurity strategies for 87% of CISOs in EMEA, according to a new Ivanti report. More than three quarters of the 400 CISOs polled by the automation platform provider believe that remote work has accelerated the demise of the traditional network perimeter (82%) and that passwords are no longer an effective means of protecting enterprise data (80%), as hackers increasingly target remote workers and mobile devices.

More than nine out of 10 (92%) said additional IT security measures were needed to address threats associated with mobile and remote working, such as the use of unsecured Wi-Fi to access business resources (cited by 45%) and employees using their own devices and unauthorised apps to access corporate data (cited by 40% and 33% respectively).

Top priorities include enhancing user experiences (cited by 58%), improving authentication to remote applications (57%) and moving critical business applications to the cloud (52%).
