Smartphones under threat from hackers

Global data protection firm, SafeNet has said both consumers and businesses are not doing enough to secure their smartphones and tablets against hacking attacks, Gulf News has reported. "The threat landscape is predicted to become extremely volatile as more people rely on smartphones and tablets. The wider the consumers use them the more attractive these devices become as targets for hackers as a means of financial gain and other nefarious activity," said Gary Clark, SafeNet vice president, EMEA.
