Threat: Insecure Mobile Data

Protect your mobile data, wherever it goes

As all industries increasingly leverage mobile applications to collect sensitive customer information, adversaries have taken notice and are shifting their focus to the mobile attack surface. Theft and misuse of customer and employee private data including financial, healthcare and HR records, payment card data, and personally identifiable information can subject a company to loss of revenue, compliance violations and penalties, and damaging loss of customer trust, brand and shareholder value.  There’s a critical need to secure sensitive data transmitted via mobile applications as hackers increasingly focus on attacking mobile platforms.

“The advent of the extended enterprise and the ease of accessing corporate information anytime, anywhere and on any device will create new pressures on security teams to encrypt day. Mobile devices are easy to lose and easy to steal. Enterprise-level encryption is the best hope for securing data
on these devices.”

Use cases include:


Secure Collaboration with mobile executives

Executive, Legal and investment teams exchange sensitive email and documents internally and externally using mobile devices in fast-moving business transactions. Granular policy control leveraging the corporate directory ensures that only the right team members or external parties are authorized to access the email and documents.


Streamlined customer processes through mobile channels

Banking customer representatives securely email mortgage or financial product documents to customers with mobile devices as well as desktop systems, with a consistent user experience. Customer service representatives are able to accelerate the mortgage initiation or refinance process while protecting sensitive data, accelerating customer on-boarding time by over 50% and improving customer satisfaction.


Seamless customer experience regards of channel

Retailers adopting a multi-channel approach to deliver a transformative customer experience whether online, mobile, or in store can reduce fraud at every touch point. By securing sensitive data in the mobile app, retailers have more control in the customer experience without having to worry about the threat to sensitive data.


Mobile Commerce

Online merchants use their websites to accept payment information securely, without compromising the checkout experience or leading to abandonment at the most critical last step in the sales process-even from mobile shoppers on the go. These storefront websites can securely capture user profile information, which needs to be protected for data privacy compliance and to reduce the risk of compromise from new attacks.


Mobile Payments

With the growing popularity of mobile apps, including mobile wallet services, sensitive payment card data transmitted via mobile applications need to be protected end-to-end. By encrypting the sensitive customer data, like credit card numbers (PAN) and CVV/CVC (security code), as it travels through the entire payment stream, and only decrypting the data when it reaches a secured trusted host, sensitive data is protected throughout the payment lifecycle.


Mobile POS

To improve customer service and increase sales, retailers adopt the mobile sales agent model where agents walk the floor with mobile payment terminals or smartphones with payment sleeves to assist customers, and facilitate a transaction immediately so the customer doesn’t have to wait in line at the cashier.


Data De-identification and Privacy

Encrypt sensitive data like Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and Protected Health Information (PHI) in mobile apps and keep the data private as it moves through the enterprise. Sensitive data can be anything from name, address, SSN, health information, etc. This enables enterprises to streamline compliance to privacy regulations through reduced live data exposure.
