It’s a software program that is installed on your mobile device that constantly scans for malicious threats designed to compromise the information on it.
There you go, before you even ask the question. That’s what it is. Bits & bytes watching your back. Software secret service that’s got your six. A binary bodyguard beating back bad Boolean. What more could you ask for? Still not clear? Browse around this web-site: https://www.securityindustry.org/
“Digital Kevlar” is the aforementioned software program which was developed by a group of people who, within the standards set by the Security Industry Association (SIA), have launched a full frontal attack on the very attackers attacking us.
We don’t know what we are doing. We simple normal’s just click away on anything and everything, employees and individuals alike. We don’t know what to look for, because we don’t know what it looks like. They do. They see it with crystal clarity, and when they do, the blood-curdling battle cry from the cyber-combat weary computer geeks, will make the hackles on the back of your neck stand on end. Their battle cry is “Wandera!”
The efforts of the cyber-sickos, i.e. “Malicious Hackers” are increasing by orders of magnitude, and the mobile device seems to be the primary target of late. If you’ve noticed text messages coming to your device unsolicited, or with a strange number or no number, or perhaps with a string of UN-intelligible characters; this is more likely than not, a malicious attack. You already know or have been told not to click on it. So – Don’t click on it!
There are many measures you can take when an attempt it made on your device. Cell service providers have some options, however, whatever it is they do is unknown. You can forward the hack attempt to them and they say they will deal with it and offer you thanks. But that’s it. You’re left to wonder.
The more comprehensive approach is in arming your device or devices with super-duper software designed to thwart each attack. Don the digital bullet proof vest and protect your devices proactively. It’s a best practice for everyone.
The proliferation of code-based attacks is still on the rise. Focus carefully on every electronic communique’. One click can severely damage your device and compromise sensitive information. There is no UN-pulling that trigger. Most attempts at stealing personal info come in the form of blatantly obvious idiocy and can easily be avoided. However, there are seriously clever tricksters out there, and “trickster” is a kind reference.
So, again, it’s prudent to carefully read each header of every message you receive on your mobile device. Stop whatever you are doing, no matter where you are, and intently scrutinize every character in every message. Take detailed notes and make return calls to seemingly legitimate messages senders to verify authenticity of your text messages every time. Or, install rock solid digital countermeasures.
