In July 2017, David Pierce wrote an article that discussed the general lack of mobile security in spite of the fact that most people attempt to secure PC’s, laptops, their homes and other assets. The article points out that mobile phones offer a virtual goldmine of passwords, bank account numbers, and other data that hackers would love to obtain, yet most mobile security measures fall short of the mark. Silent Circle’s secure mobile devices are featured as a possible solution to people who use their mobile devices for both business and personal reasons.
