The widest occurring prey-cases happen to professionals using the same mobile device for both their business and personal communication. This poses as a challenge for security teams, since the user is by far the weakest link between the security provider and exploiter. Securing a device from within the organization is doable to a far extent, but what could be done when the user decides to download a shady application or browse a non-secured webpage? Only highly focused and agile solutions like XDR with high reliance on machine learning and artificial intelligence are able to keep up with the unaware user. Which brings us to the second trend of 2022, security awareness.
