Cyber threats are real. You hear about identity theft, information leaks and hackers getting into systems and taking over. And now, we do almost everything from our mobile devices – banking, shopping, home security controls and more. While it seems impossible to thwart such threats, there are steps you can take to protect yourself and your stuff – at least at the mobile level. ijura is an app that makes it easy to build a wall around anything you do that takes place on your mobile.
ijura provides the kind of defense you need to prevent the phishing attacks that we are seeing more and more of: malware, spyware, scams, and network exploits – keeping threats out and your data clean. The app is free to download and is easy to set up. Once you have downloaded the app, you will be prompted for some information. This includes whether you are an adult or child and your mobile number or SMS. The need for whether you are an adult or child helps the app block content that is inappropriate for children, and this is something that parents and guardians will appreciate the most.
A nice feature of the app is that you can enable and disable security as you need it. It does not have to be ON all the time, which means you can free up your phone’s computing power at times you know you are not transferring or handling sensitive data. This can be important at times, because when the security setting is ON, it is running in the background like a sentry on duty.
If the app finds anything suspicious, it notifies you immediately so you can take action. Anything you send or receive is protected, so transfers between your mobile and the Cloud are engulfed in a protective shell that no one gets access to, but you.
ijura works both for businesses and for individuals, which makes it an easy choice for anyone. Business users get peace of mind that they can use their mobiles to access sensitive company information from anywhere, without the threat of it being “seen”. Private consumers can use this app to ensure their personal information is kept safe and can be accessed without issue.
I really liked the simple layout and usability of the app. I think it would be really neat to generate a report to see what threats the app was able to detect so you can see summary on an ongoing basis; like weekly, monthly or even a yearly report.
On its own, Ijura stands tall as a guard at your gate, ready to mitigate any threat or risk that comes your way, clearing a safe path for you and your data, so you can your mobile apps without worry.
