Over the last decade we have seen the dramatic increase in adoption of Mobile as an engagement channel for consumers and employees within the enterprise. What we are seeing now is the emergence of messaging through channels like FB Messenger,
WhatsApp, WeChat, Slack, SMS, as a dominant engagement channel. Over 4.1 Billion users around the world are on instant messaging apps, adopted a rate that was much faster than on social networks. What makes these channels the default choice is the expected instant response if the other person is on or the push notification that triggers the person on the other side to respond immediately. These users that use instant messaging channels to converse with their friends and family want to use the same
familiar user experience and channel to instantly communicate with the enterprise. These channels are doing to apps what browsers did to client server apps i.e. these channels are rapidly becoming the next browser. This is leading to the innovations in
Entrust Certificate Services provide one of the industry’s most comprehensive offerings of digital certificates and related services, tools and solutions.
Whether it's a basic SSL certificate, more advanced EV multi-domain SSL certificates, or specialty certificates for secure email, code-signing or Adobe PDFs, Entrust offers a comprehensive portfolio of today's most-used digital certificates. And all are supported by Entrust's world-class service.
To bolster consumer trust in the foundation of ecommerce before it was irreparably damaged, several CAs and browser vendors came together to establish a higher security approach based on common standards: Extended Validation SSL certificates.
EV SSL is universally supported by all desktop browsers and provides an EV trust indication. All mobile browsers support EV SSL and some provide an EV indication.
Extended Validation SSL certificates have the highest impact on consumers, reassuring them that the site they are visiting is legitimate through visual cues in un-modifiable parts of the browser interface “chrome.”
For example, the latest versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Apple Safari display the corporate name with a green background for sites protected by an Extended Validation SSL certificate.
The demand for (and benefits of) web-based interfaces combined with an increasingly mobile and distributed workforce has exposed inefficiencies inherent in the browser, the network and its protocols, and the data center. These inefficiencies create performance problems for applications that continue to be magnified by emerging technologies like Web 2.0 and SOA. This White Paper details how F5's approach to Application Delivery Networking eliminates the bottlenecks inherent in browsers, in the network, and in the data.

This infographic gives a quick visual representation of some of the key findings of a recent Webroot research on web security in the US and UK. As cybercriminals increasingly exploit vulnerabilities in mobile browsers and apps, companies with mobile workforces face new challenges in protecting users and critical data. And the impacts of failing to protect against mobile browsing threats can be severe. The infographic also gives a checklist of things you can do to reduce the risks. Among the key points:
• 50% of companies in the US estimate that web-borne attacks cost from $25,000 to $1 million in 2012.
• 90% of respondents agree that managing the security of remote users is challenging
• 50% of firms with remote workers had a website compromised
