How Mobile Apps are Becoming Disastrous for Enterprises?

Hackers taking back route through Mobile Apps to Breach Corporate Data

Mobile Apps

Do you know mobile apps are the biggest threat to corporations? You must be wondering, how an app pose any trouble to enterprises?

Yes, It is high time for corporations to get alert and become concerned about the posing threat from top mobile apps. Many corporates are not even aware of this fact that their data is leaking out through insecure mobile apps.

It is often noticed that mobile apps extract personal data such as location access and device’s information which is not even mandatory for apps to use. The problem evolves from the uploading of data to the cloud and any hacker who knows where to look for information in the cloud can have access to your valuable corporate data.

The latest founded threat to enterprise data seems to take place when mobile apps send these important data to unsecured backend databases.  A research shows vulnerability to 280 million data records from the weak backend security of enterprise apps.

Due to weak backend security, these records were easily accessible without any requirement of prior authentication. It simply means that without any password requirement, corporate data is available to everyone. Therefore, we can presume the factors leading to the increase in a number of data-stealing cases from databases and held for heavy ransom.

President and Co-founder of Appthority, Domingo Guerra said, to secure corporate data companies will have to keep the check on the apps which are being used by their employees and how they are using apps and companies need to understand all kind of potential risks posed by them.

Therefore, some important advice that is needed to be followed by companies to tackle this serious threat to their valuable data. Employees should get proper information about the risks from apps they download. A policy should be made and implemented for using mobile and apps should only be downloaded from authorized app stores.
