Artificial Intelligence Attack Resistant Mobile Security
Software-based mobile security solutions rely on the safety of the underlying operating system. If you encrypt confidential data and store the key on a vulnerable device or operating system – your data will be at high risk. These devices and platforms are not designed to resist advanced threats, i.e. artificial intelligence-based attacks. There is a strong need to eliminate these risks, while maintaining consumer level usability for mobile devices and applications.
certgate, a leading German-based security solution provider is focused on delivering mobile security products and solutions. The company credo is- ‘We secure our client's mobile communication, no matter if voice, chat, email or data. Our clients are protected independently from BYOD or corporate devices - Any time, any place, and any device.’ certgate’s success is based on a restless, paranoid approach to combine maximum security with minimum user impact. They work intensively with their partners and clients, no matter the platform, geography or language. The company’s patented technology truly protects their customer’s mobile data, emails, chat and voice communication.

Top-Notch Security Framework
certgate IT security policies point towards few major trends, some of which include:
• Everyone and everything goes mobile. • Users request simple user interfaces. • Consumerization is key. • IT security should have no user impact. • IT attacks will increase dramatically. • Artificial intelligence automation will put almost any software-based security concept at high risk
While the first trends are visible in short to medium term – the last one “artificial intelligence (A.I.)” will have the biggest impact. AI will be the most dangerous one with regards that hackers will use A.I. to find vulnerabilities and completely new ways to invade infrastructure and gather user keys and credentials. Nevertheless, certgate is very well prepared to tackle the threats that follow these trends. certgate’s solutions combine artificial intelligence attack resistant; hardware based high security with consumer like usability.
It is experiential that one of the most used attacks vectors are phishing attacks which gain access to the targeted computer, networks and infrastructures.
certgate’s secure authentication products and technology provide important elements of securing infrastructures against unauthorized access to prevent ransomware attacks and damages from zero-day exploits. This vector will become substantially more important using A.I. based attacks.While the IoT threats are often based on insecure authentication and insecure encryption. certgate’s products and technology enable maximum secure authentication and encryption for IoT devices and infrastructures. For these reasons, certgate agile solutions are perfectly protected against new weapons and attacks, which will definitely arise in future.
Certgate has vowed to address above changes in the global IT security landscape. Through its growing partner network certgate plans to expand international into other European countries, MENA and United States areas. The company touts to become the leader for device independent secure authentication and encryption for professional and governmental infrastructures.
