Effective BYOD Security App

Only recently Apple started cracking down on Anti Virus Apps by starting removing them from the App Store as apparently no viruses or malware exists for Apple….hust hust. (http://www.businessinsider.com/apple-antivirus-app-store-crack-down-intego-virusbarrier-2015-3).  A slight dose of arrogance must have overcome Apple by doing so. Just to clarify for everyone: We are not in the boat with any vendor and we report from a pure Security standpoint without any Bias towards or against one vendor or the other. Fact is that there are tons of viruses and malware out there specifically targeting Apple iOS. So anyone saying there are no viruses or malware on iOS is WRONG. Only recently we stumbled across interesting code snippets on the dark web to exploit iOS 8.x.

Now this is clarified we would like to show our readers a very good mobile application which enhances security a lot. The company producing this App is called zImperium. It counter-tackles ARP spoofing attempt in a Wireless Cell but also is an ideal component for any BYOD setup. It protects agains Host and Network Attacks alike and is a very robust endpoint security solution overall. Here the link: https://www.zimperium.com/zips-mobile-ips

Adding protection to endpoints

We often get asked the question: I have a MAC so I am secure right? Well, you are more secure than on any Microsoft OS that’s for sure. Apple implements security a lot better and has far fewer security flaws than Microsoft. However does this make MacOS and iOS invincible? No. Security is a cat and mouse game and clever programmers, exploit developers and hackers always find flaws in any system. What can you do to make it harder? There are good endpoint security suites out there but a bot cost money.

We recommend everyones to use the Forticlient from Fortinet for starters. It’s a neat endpoint security protection suite and is completely free. It exists for Microsoft, iOS, MacOS and Android.
