SAN FRANCISCO – October 24, 2019 – RiskIQ, global leaders in attack surface management, today published its Mobile Threat Landscape Q2 2019 report, which monitors over 120 mobile app stores globally and scans nearly two billion resources looking for mobile apps in the wild.
In 2018, global app spending hit $101 billion and is expected to surpass that this year. Mobile is a significant portion of the overall corporate attack surface where security teams often suffer from a lack of visibility. For the second-consecutive quarter, blacklisted apps increased with a 20% spike, accounting for over 2% of all apps in RiskIQ’s telemetry.
Q2 2019 key findings include:
This quarter’s report goes on to offer tips including that users should be skeptical when downloading mobile apps and have antivirus software along with regular backups. Malicious apps mimicking reputable, highly downloaded apps is a persistent problem. These tactics are successful because we recognize and make instantaneous judgments about visual stimuli.
