LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The mobile banking channel has the potential to be more secure than traditional online banking. With the rapid adoption of smartphone devices and tablet PCs, nearly all types of organizations are currently busy with producing their own apps for customers to download, with banks being no exception. They also continue to launch applications for customers to freely conduct the same scope of transactions they would have previously performed online from a personal computer (PC). It is predicted that close to 20% of Americans will be doing mobile banking by the end of 2015.
Meanwhile, as the present level of threat directed against the mobile channel is low versus PC-based communication, criminals are most likely to eventually turn their attention to mobile banking as its usage grows. As the mobile device becomes the number one screen for our daily lives it conversely becomes an increased target for evil-minded activity. Mobile devices are increasingly being attacked.

The study explains the importance of security for mobile banking, besides investigating how technology vendors and banks are deploying solutions to prevent fraud and identity theft.
