Fighting Inaccurate Perceptions: Mobile Devices are More Secure than PCs
Whether used for secure physical and logical access, authenticators for digital identities, platforms for soft tokens or even as tools to verify desktop-based transactions to defeat malware, mobile devices are currently the most secure platform available.
Even with today’s sandboxed mobile applications, secure operating systems and savvy mobile users, the perception remains that mobile devices aren’t computers to be taken seriously — and, as a result, aren’t as secure.
