Cell phone security attacks increasing
December 12, 2006
According to new numbers published by Juniper Research, overall, the average number of security attacks against cellular and mobile phones is increasingly dramatically. The security company has identified a large number of risks that can seriously affect mobile phone users, including certain viruses and even malware.
These security risks, combined with ever-tightening corporate governance rules and the increasing use of mobiles to store critical data, will prompt mobile users to install security products on 247 million mobile phones, nearly eight per cent of the total, by 2011.
Juniper's latest research report also forecasts that mobile phone theft will continue to rise, despite initiatives by mobile operators and police forces. The security firm expects that nearly four per cent of mobile phones will be stolen annually in five years from now.
Revenues from mobile security products, including antivirus, virtual private networks, data and file encryption and mobile identity management applications, are expected to generate almost $5 billion worth of revenue by 2011.
The biggest mobile security market will be in the secure mobile content sector, where antivirus, anti-spam, anti-spyware and content filtering will make up 40 percent of the total market, according to the report.
Revenue from mobile data and file encryption technology is expected to outstrip the PC market by 2011.
"Initially driven by the data-hungry mobile business user who has seen the benefits of data services such as email, predominantly on BlackBerry devices, we will see mobile security products go mainstream by late 2008 or early 2009 resulting in a doubling of revenues from 2008 to 2010," said Juniper analyst Alan Goode, author of the report.
