Only Five Percent of Smartphones have Security Software

According to Juniper Research, globally only five percent of smartphones and tablets have security software installed by their user. The study suggests that with rising malware, fraud, and device theft that mobile security will increase dramatically in the next five years. Up to one in five devices will be secured by third party software and that the number of consumer protected devices will be greater than business devices by 2015. This could allow several companies to enter the mobile industry by providing security software superior to what few services are offered already.
