Application Review
More of a reason as to why validation of these apps need to be approved by the OS owner (Apple, Android, etc). I know Apple does this to some degree (I am sure some apps slip through regardless) but Android seems to be an open market. For this reason I would posit that this type of attack would be more prevalent on android devices but I would like to see the raw data around it. Does anyone have data to contrast or strengthen my statement?

MDM and EMM
Has MDM implementations such as Mobile Iron at the enterprise level decreased or eradicated this threat? Or does anyone have experience to the effect of ransomware being present even with an MDM solution? Enterprise approved apps seem to be the security best practice when it comes to MDM.

User error and software issues

Do you think the current software is adequate to protect our phones or do you think its lack of using antispyware and virus software on phones that is causing the issue? While there will always be user error in responding to scams, if phones were preloaded with protective software we may evade some of these issues.
