Know where your mobile data is going? Some apps can tell you

Andrew Hoog, the CEO and co-founder of mobile security firm viaForensics puts it plainly: “Your data is being sent a lot of places that you don’t realize.”

Perhaps that’s why at this week’s RSA conference in San Francisco, there was a lot of interest among attendees in tools you can use to secure mobile devices.

That includes tools like viaForensics’s ViaProtect, a new app that detects and analyzes where the data from your mobile phone is being transmitted. The free app runs on iOS and Android.

In this video report on mobile security offerings, we’ll also look at MobileIron, which offers a platform for businesses that want to deploy, secure, and manage mobile devices, applications, and content. We’ll also look at Sirrix and one of its security products available for Android phones that allows users to combine personal and business data on the same device.
