The Network May Be Safe But Is Your Phone? By Eric Everson, Founder – MyMobiSafe.com

Does it make you feel all warm and fuzzy as a mobile consumer to hear your cellular service provider talk about the “security” features their brand offers? As it is today, cellular security is in the hands of the individual mobile user. In reality what adds up to hundreds of millions of dollars spent by cellular providers around the world on network level security, may not protect your phone at all.

The behind the scenes network infrastructure of all wireless service providers is heavily driven by computers thus security at the network level is just that, at the network level. The smoke and mirrors that all cellular providers want their average subscriber to “just accept” is that their network security doubles as your handset level security.

The reality is that mobile security is in the hands of each individual mobile user. Admitting that there is a handset level vulnerability represents a huge potential brand liability for the cellular service providers. Take control of your own mobile antivirus security solution and take control of your own handset level security.
