London, United Kingdom, 2007/04/12 - While digital interactions are becoming increasingly important to both individuals and enterprises, they are also coming under greater threat from cybercrime.
In the United Kingdom alone, losses due to phishing increased tenfold from £4.5 million in 2004 to £45.7 million in 2006, driving the need for robust and convenient digital security solutions.
The number of Internet users worldwide is expected to nearly double from 760 million in 2003 to 1.7 billion by 2007. This growth is accompanied not only by a corresponding increase in the types and numbers of devices available but in services as well.
Such proliferation of devices and services has led to new opportunities for public and private sector organisations. These organisations should ensure complete client security from cyber crimes such as phishing and pharming, which threaten digital transactions such as online retail, mobile payments and online tax filing.
“In order to achieve to a successful digital world, the use and implementation of dedicated security technology is required,” says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Jose Lopez. “This security technology needs to not only protect the assets and identities of the digital users but should be user friendly and convenient as well.”
The Security Meets Simplicity To Create Trust whitepaper provides an overview of the driving trends for digital interactions and technologies involved in providing convenient and secure digital interactions. It is part of the Frost & Sullivan Network Security Growth Partnership Service.
