How Securing the Mobile Frontier for Enterprise and Consumer Mobile Financial Applications Becomes Necessary

Webinar Features Insights on Self-Defending Software to Secure Mobile Financial Apps

GLASGOW, Scotland--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Metaforic, the innovative software security company, today announced a free webinar that will provide insights into how the recent trends in mobile apps affect an organisation's security profile. The session will highlight why self-defending software is increasingly viewed as a critical technology for securing applications and data on mobile devices.

The webinar will include an in-depth discussion on mobile platforms and the recent exponential growth in malware, which is leading toward a perfect storm of financial fraud, targeting both consumer-facing and enterprise, in-house applications.

According to InfoSecurity, mobile malware is up 2,180% in 2012 alone. Transaction protection has become a critical part of protecting financial transactions from account takeover and reducing financial fraud. In fact, global regulations – from the United States to India to China – stress layered online security with a focus on protecting transactions, both financial and non-financial, according to the updated FFIEC Guidelines.

Attendees will gain insights on the following:

  • Emergence of the app-based economy and how this growing trend is affecting business models
  • The rapid evolution of mobile security and what it means to your business
  • Risks to mobile platforms and how they are increasing as we move from adoption of consumer mobile apps to widespread in-house mobile apps
  • Self-defending software as a critical technology for securing applications and data on mobile devices
