Periodic mobile forensics

A forensics analysis is conducted on each of multiple mobile devices in an enterprise system to detect malicious activity. The systems and methods described include storing a single baseline image for the multiple mobile devices at a server. A client-side application on each mobile device scans storage locations to identify changes in data compared to a previous scan. At least a portion of the information about the changes is sent to the server. The server reconstructs snapshot images for each mobile device based on the baseline image and the received information. Malicious activity is detected by comparing the reconstructed snapshot image to a previous snapshot image for each mobile device
