Enterprise security company SentryBay has unveiled a new anti-keylogging solution designed for smartphones, tablets, and other mobile products. To help keep mobile users secure, the product generates a dedicated secure keyboard, keystroke encryption, screen capture protection, and the generation of fake random characters.
Both Google Android and Apple iOS cache user keypad entries, providing savvy hackers with the ability to monitor and uplift what is entered.
"We are pleased to announce these latest innovations," said Dave Waterson, CEO of SentryBay. "For a long time we have been a leader in PC-based anti-keylogging technology, but after years of R&D we finally feel the solution we have developed for mobile can provide the strong data entry security that app developers are looking for."
Cybercriminals now have a number of different methods to compromise users, and mobile devices can be lucrative targets. More threats are being discovered by researchers, but most vulnerabilities are left untouched.
