This whitepaper deals with the rise of mobility, BYOD and social networking, and how these trends have led cybercriminals to exploit vulnerabilities in browsers and mobile apps. For example, more than 30,000 mostly legitimate websites become infected with malware every day.

The report describes how to stay on top of this changing threat landscape and prevent damaging attacks with:
• 100% protection against known viruses
• Industry-leading URL filtering and IP protection via the world’s largest threat database
• Extended protection for smartphones and tablets
• Simplified web-based management
With more than 1 billion smartphones in consumers' pockets at the beginning of 2013, mobile is driving a second Internet revolution that's even more profound than the first one.

This fourth annual mobile trends report revisits our 2013 mobile trends, elaborates on how they will continue to evolve in 2013, and highlights new mobile trends that we expect to see this year. New to this year's report is a list of the over-hyped topics that we believe will fail to provide real business value in the short term.
