4 Ways to Secure Your Workforce’s Apple Devices with SureMDM iOS MDM

fev 05, 2024 | 42Gears Team

Whenever employees bring their own devices (BYOD) to work, there's an increased risk of cybersecurity threats, particularly phishing attacks. In recent years, phishing attacks have increased on Apple devices, raising security concerns on how secure iOS and Apple devices can be for the workplace. 

In fact, a recent cybersecurity report stated that over 2.8 million phishing attacks, that specifically targeted banks, payments portals and stores, and online stores, were made specifically towards Apple devices.

Phishing attacks continue to remain a pervasive threat globally, exploiting users by impersonating trustworthy entities to extract sensitive information. As BYOD adoption rises, the need for robust device security measures for businesses becomes paramount, given the potential disparities in security between personal and corporate devices.

Why iOS MDM for Countering Phishing Attacks

iOS Mobile Device Management (MDM) is a crucial defense mechanism against phishing attacks. Robust MDM solutions with in-built iOS MDM capabilities, like SureMDM, empower administrators to enforce stringent security policies, configure settings, and ensure compliance across fleets of iPhones and iPads, irrespective of their location.
