Next story

SAN DIEGO - ESET®, the pioneer of proactive digital protection, will showcase the best of its award-winning solutions for mobile platforms and share new security survey findings next week at Mobile World Congress (MWC).

Ahead of MWC, ESET today released survey findings that provide insight into the cyber threats that most concern and affect businesses. Conducted among attendees of various IT expos, as well as ESET’s own worldwide series of ESET Security Days, the survey includes feedback from more than 1,700 IT professionals in 11 countries and regions of EMEA.

One of the most notable findings in the report is that malware infections are reported as the most frequent security incident, as indicated by 58 percent of all respondents. Perhaps more surprising is the fact that firms are not paying enough attention to mobile security, with only 21 percent of them using a mobile security solution. This is a topic that will be addressed by ESET during MWC. For more about the findings, download the report at or read the blogpost here:
