Tablets are the current rage in the enterprise mobility space. Businesses are trying to figure out how to use tablets on offense by deploying them to field-facing personnel and as a platform for new types of mobile applications. The IT team (of course) is trying to figure out how to defend corporate data and networks from these new arrivals.
So here we at the dawn of a new year, looking out to the unknown opportunities that await us. The Smartphone market is ripe for the next great leap forward, and out of China comes something that forces us to take a big step backwards. Gemini, or Geimini, is the latest Trojan to impact the Android operating system. Notice, I didn’t say the first Trojan. There have been others, like Trojan-SMS last summer, and just like that one, this Geimini Trojan disguises itself as an application. The Trojan collects information from the device, connects to remote systems and has the potential of receiving commands. All pretty common stuff for a Trojan, but new to the Smartphone space.
