When the mobile network of your company, and even your own personal connected devices, are under constant attack by faceless hackers, it’s best to know as much as you can about how they do it. Or better yet, implement a security measure created by experts who do “know thy enemy.”
Knowing how to bypass two factor authentication used for logging into secure websites is the most recent trick of the hacker. Award winning enterprise level security applications are the bane of the hacker. Since the quintessential ‘hacker’ is the main threat in all of cyberspace, the path to victory begins with knowing thy hacker.
Cyber Crime data shows an alarming trend in recent efforts by criminals stealing data. The attacks are getting slicker and slimier. I often wonder why people resort to cybercrime (any crime really) considering how difficult and complicated it is. Having a normal job is much easier, right?
Despite personal opinions and raw data from the government, the threat is real and having competent measures in place to stop it is, well; cool. That it’s necessary at all is not a cool thing, however, it is necessary and second guessing with such important decisions is unwise.
The shifty hacker is always devising new ways to thwart security measures and they are getting tricky. Two Factor Authentication, or 2FA is thought to be the most secure method in use today, but the wily little hacker is ever vigilant and gets what it wants, sometimes.
The Master of Security are on the front lines of the cyber battle. Avail yourself of them. Your business depends on security of networks utilized by workers and productivity can take a hit with even the smallest hack. Top enterprise level software is evolving to knock the hackers back into their parent’s basements and slam the cellar door shut. The business networks are protected. Particularly the mobile networks which are becoming the bread and butter of worldwide communications these days, and as they get more advanced, so will the hackers. Beware.
Mobile networks are taking over and becoming more involved in business networking and they have very specific vulnerabilities. The latest being the 2FA exploit. Security software applications tailored for mobile devices are putting companies and businesses at ease. They can stop threats such as bypassing 2FA before they even happen. Thankfully the most brilliant security software developers are on our side.
Perhaps someday the “killer app” will come to be and be capable of defeating all hackers in their tracks, but as it is today the battle rages on. Best practices by employees combined with first rate cyber security measures is the current protocol, and the process is ever changing. Who knows what the future holds, and who knows what lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows.
