NEW YORK (Reuters) - AT&T Inc plans to launch a wireless security service for consumers next year to help combat a big rise in cyber attacks on mobile devices, a top executive said.

As more people use smartphones like Apple Inc's iPhone and Google Inc's Android-based devices to download Web applications, John Stankey, the head of AT&T's enterprise business, said he had seen a big spike in security attacks on cellphones.

"Hackers always go to where there's a base of people to attack," Stankey said in an interview ahead of the Reuters Technology Media and Telecommunications Summit.
