More malware is appearing on mobile devices themselves, and despite security measures such as full-device encryption, they can steal information regardless of the roadblocks that businesses put in their way, according to V-Key CTO Joseph Gan.

Speaking at the RSA Conference Asia Pacific in Singapore on Wednesday, Gan said that while the main concern among enterprises used to be the loss of data when a device goes missing or is stolen, businesses now have to deal with hidden malware that evades most controls put in place.

“If your employee loses his mobile device … you can make sure that your customer lists and all that aren’t lost; that your backups aren’t lost. But the challenge that we’re seeing is that because the applications that use data move on to the device, the threats actually are moving on to the mobile device as well.”
