Does Android's success make it a cyber target?
Tuesday - 11/29/2011, 6:02pm EST
Employee-owned devices has made the list of one of the biggest cyber threats, according to a forecast from M86 Security Labs.
And Android smartphones may be the biggest cyber threat to federal agency networks.
That's because Droids are increasingly being targeted by hackers.
"Android is in many ways a victim of its own success," the M86 threat forecast states. "As users flock to devices running the operating system, so do the attackers."
Bradley Anstis is the vice president of technical strategy at M86 Security, joined In Depth with Francis Rose to discuss the network threats, why the Android platform is an increasing target and what agencies can do protect themselves.
