You can’t get away from it. Cloud and Security appear to be joined at the hip and, as far as I can tell, will be for years to come. Talk, talk, talk. In a security report by Arxan, it was found that mobile health and finance applications had one thing in common, 90% had major security vulnerabilities. The survey covered business as well as consumers.
From the consumer side, it is disconcerting that the two types of applications I would most likely use would be health and finance. According to the results, “87% of executives and 83% of consumers said that they felt their mobile apps were “adequately secure.” Additionally, 82% of executives and 57% of consumers said that they believe “everything is being done” to protect their apps. When asked if they thought their app was likely to be hacked in the next six months or so, 46% of executives and 48% of consumers said yes.” I still can’t reconcile the logic on this one, if 87% felt their apps were adequately secure, 46% felt they would be hacked in the next 6 months?
The results came to the conclusion that, “Of the apps examined, a staggering 90% were vulnerable to at least two of the OWASP Security Project’s top 10 mobile risks.” The summary advice was to hold the vendors accountable and demand quality (security) when purchasing mobile devices.
That’s all well and good, but is that enough? What do you think?
