• Proofpoint Mobile Defense

Results
The Proofpoint assessment uncovered a suspicious app that led the power systems maker to the “DarkSideLoader web store,” which imitates iTunes® and Google Play™, offering free apps with a side of malware designed to steal credentials and important data. Proofpoint shared the fake app store info with Apple® and Google®.

“We were thankful for the deep investigation into the DarkSideLoader phenomenon and believe we are much safer and stronger knowing we are continuously protecting our mobile phones from threats.”
