Kaspersky Lab at Mobile World Congress 2014
17 Feb 2014
Kaspersky Lab will be showcasing a range of new and updated solutions at Mobile World Congress 2014, the world's largest exhibition for the mobile industry, held on February 24-27, 2014 in Barcelona, Spain.
Kaspersky Lab is set to unveil its new platform designed to help financial organizations and e-commerce companies protect their users from online fraud regardless of the device used to conduct financial operations. Moreover, the company will announce its new application for Windows Phone and an updated version of the corporate solution for mobile device management – Kaspersky Security for Mobile.
The rapid rise in the number and sophistication of fraud attacks is an increasingly pressing problem for e-commerce, as well as for individual users. A 2013 survey conducted by Kaspersky Lab in cooperation with B2B International found that 98% of users regularly access online financial services or shop online. 38% of them do so with their mobile devices. The results of the survey also revealed that 62% of users encountered financial cyberthreats over a 12-month period.
On February 25, 2014 at 13:30 in Hall CC1-1.3, within the framework of Mobile World Congress 2014, Kaspersky Lab will hold a panel discussion “Are digital wallets safe from fraud? The IT security implications of mobile e-commerce” bringing together the company’s leading security experts and banking sector representatives to speak about the problem of online financial fraud. David Jacoby, Kaspersky Lab’s Senior Security Researcher, will give an overview of the current online banking threats and will disclose details of online fraud schemes targeting mobile funds management. Derek White, Chief Design Officer, Barclays, will discuss the challenges which banks encounter when encouraging their clients to use online and mobile banking. Vladimir Zapolyansky, Head of Product and Technology Intelligence, Kaspersky Lab, will present the company’s new solution designed to help financial organizations and e-commerce companies avoid any problems with their digital wallets caused by online financial fraud.
