More people shop, email, and search on their mobile device than on computers these days. According to Mashable, a study showed that in 2012, mobile traffic worldwide grew to 70%, nearly double what it was the year before. In 2013, it reached 12 times what the global Internet was in 2000. A Cisco studyshowed that "by the end of 2014, the number of mobile-connected devices will exceed the number of people on earth, and by 2018 there will be nearly 1.4 mobile devices per capita." With all this growth, companies are taking larger strides in determining how to make sure their mobile sites and applications are both secure and scalable in order to meet demand.
As part of our mobile summer series, we have invited a panel of mobile security and scalability experts to discuss where mobile security and scalability currently stands, and what we can expect for the future.
