Lookout Mobile Security

How much risk are you taking with your mobiles?

Mobile infection rates rose in the last twelve months and will continue to do so as cyber criminals are increasingly turn their focus to mobile devices as these endpoints have little or no protection on them. The assumption is mobile devices are safe, have built in security or are enrolled in an MDM (Mobile Device Management) solution securing the device. This assumption is wrong. There are a wealth of threats targeted at mobile devices, such as man-in-the-middle attacks, data leakage, malicious apps, out of date OS. To protect against these you need to understand what risks your mobile devices are prone to.

To help assess how vulnerable your business may be, AVR, in association with mobile security specialists Lookout, is offering for a limited period, a complimentary Mobile Risk Assessment with the opportunity to win a Spa Weekend break in our exciting prize draw.

Landlines are dying. Are you ready for a mobile business world?

In its regular quarterly survey of UK telecommunications, Ofcom is consistently reporting that the traditional landline is in serious decline. People are choosing mobiles as their primary means of voice communication as they see them to be more convenient and efficient. This trend is visible in both personal and business communications, with some companies, such as the accountancy giant PwC publicly announcing a wholesale move to mobile.

Mobiles provide the convenient ‘one stop’ point of communication that many find attractive. With easy online access and the availability of millions of mobile apps to assist with managing workloads its easy to see why the move to mobile will gain pace. The question is though, is your organisation fit and ready to give control to mobiles? Do you have processes to ensure all mobiles are secure and access to valuable business data is controlled? If you are serious about Mobile Device Management and would like expert advice on the solution, AVR’s FREE 10 Steps to Mobility Success E-Book can help to guide you in creating a platform that can help take your business to the next level.

Wake up your endpoints and smell the coffee

With the rapid changes in cyber security over the last few years, it’s vital that threat protection solutions match the exploits of the cyber criminals and meet the needs of businesses and organisations to ensure they remain secure. One of AVR’s key service tenets is to keep close to all of our customers and industry prospects to be certain we have the right solutions.  One way of doing that is to run surveys where we ask the recipients for their views.

AVR Be My Valentine

AVR is sharing the love

Take a look at the headlines on any news media at any time of any day and you could be forgiven thinking that the world has fallen out of love. War, politics, cyber attacks, religious hatred, sexism, racism and so on. Bad news sells newspapers as they used to say. Mid February gives us the opportunity, just for a brief moment, to share the love, albeit in a slightly manufactured way.  St Valentine’s Day mostly benefits flower sellers and chocolate manufacturers, but it does remind us that expressing love is no bad thing and at AVR, we have decided to embrace the emotion too!
