Matt Boddy is an ex MoD penetration tester turned mobile security specialist. He has reverse-engineered hundreds of mobile malware samples reviewing the techniques used by cyber crooks to steal data or money from their targets. With this information and knowledge, he has helped craft an AI-based system to help thwart mobile malware with Traced.
I recently learned more about what threats businesses face on their mobile devices. For example, the rise of Stalkerware is even affecting users in Apple’s walled garden. But 61% of companies still say they have no employee mobile protection whatsoever.
However, I wanted to learn more about how machine learning can detect suspicious apps. But also why just detecting apps isn’t enough. Matt shares with me Traced’s vision to make the invisible visible. It’s about creating software that shines a light on threats that are invisible to traditional forms of detection.
It’s about transparency in pricing and making sure their software protects people by being easy to understand and effective. All while respecting users’ and employees’ privacy by being transparent about what you’re doing and why.
Matt shares the inspiration behind building a different kind of security company. A company that understands and talks about the threats that businesses face every day, rather than the ones that get the best headlines or induce the greatest fear.
