Lookout, a leading mobile security company, has issued a new report outlining where malware and other dangerous mobile software threats primarily linger on a geographic basis.
In the first report of its kind, Lookout takes a deep dive into mobile threat data from the Lookout Platform in five countries (US, UK, Germany, India and Japan) to identify key threats in each region.
“As mobile marches on,” Lookout says in its report, “the threat landscape continues to evolve. Like any entrepreneur, the bad guys go where the opportunity exists and focus on the business models that are most successful – and like many businesses, there are differences that can be seen at the country level based on economics of a given region.”
Lookout also released the following infographic to highlight the biggest threats by location.
