DALLAS and DUBLIN, 30 March 2016 – AdaptiveMobile, the world leader in mobile network security, today announced that the Company has passed the 1.5 billion milestone of mobile subscribers protected as it continues to witness rapid uptake of its mobile network protection platform and mobile threat intelligence services. As well as protecting 75 percent of mobile subscribers in North America, AdaptiveMobile has experienced significant growth through new partnerships in Latin America – now protecting almost 25 percent of mobile users in the region – and expanded within Africa to protect almost 30 percent of subscribers on the continent.
With 3.6 billion unique mobile users worldwide, and growth predicted to continue to 9 billion mobile connections by 2020, the mobile device is becoming the main channel to launch fraudulent or malicious threats to an individual, an enterprise or a nation state. The World Economic forum names cyber-security as one of the greatest threats to businesses around the world in their 2016 Global Risks Report and as the mobile threat landscape continues to evolve in complexity and sophistication of attacks, the demand for security becomes a critical consideration.

The Company is poised for continued growth as our unique mobile experience, sophisticated security software and global threat intelligence are called upon to develop new security architectures as IOT and 5G move the industry towards hyper-connected networks of the future”.
