Mobile Torrents A Cell Phone Security Nightmare By: Eric Everson, Founder – MyMobiSafe.com
It was not too many years ago that torrents were an unheard of technology and today they have all but reinvented the way we file share. In the depths of the connected mobile hacker community there are avid coders working to make mobile torrents a reality. For cell phone owner’s mobile torrents represent incredible access to mobile applications and other content, but for mobile security providers mobile torrents will be a security nightmare.
MyMobiSafe was built on the belief that the future of mobile security will be fought at the customer handset level. Generally speaking, wireless service providers have invested millions to protect the network level security with little regard for handset level security. The emergence of mobile torrents is sure to change the mentality of wireless service providers throughout the world. Where today handsets are somewhat islands of isolated technology due to the lack of a universally accepted operating system (as arguably exists for the computer side), the dawn of mobile torrents will open cell phone interconnectivity like never before.
As the founder of MyMobiSafe.com, I expect mobile torrents to become a major emerging technology for the future. While mobile torrents may provide access to an abundance of mobile content, the malware and mobile threats will also be saturated in the mix. Mobile torrents are one thing that could literally render millions of dollars invested in network level security completely useless. The future of mobile security will be fought at the handset level; are you ready?
