Payment security and compliance solution provider ControlScan is teaming with iScan Online to address the security issues small to midsize businesses (SMBs) face when employees use their own mobile devices for work. They have launched ProTect Mobile, a tool they can use to secure Apple iOS and Android mobile devices.

This latest entry into the mobile security space comes as attacks are on the increase. In fact, there are 10 million malicious applications circulating for Android devices alone, according to IT security vendor Kaspersky.

“While mobile devices create an opportunity to move the point of interaction closer to the customer, these devices are also inherently insecure,” said Joan Herbig, CEO, ControlScan, in a statement. With ProTect Mobile SMBs can control and secure mobile devices so cyberthieves can’t exploit the device or the data that’s on the device, Herbig added.

ProTect Mobile is a cloud-based mobile device scanning tool that works with a local device app to scan Android and iOS smartphones and tablets to ensure that they meet the guidelines set by the PCI Security Standards Council for mobile payment acceptance.
