Entrust, TowerGroup Discuss Leveraging Mobile Devices for Stronger Security in Upcoming Webcast

DALLAS, May 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — The increasing adoption and dependence on mobile devices has led customers to demand more online services from banks and financial institutions. For banks looking to capitalize on the mobile environment, or stay ahead of pending FFIEC guidelines, more stringent security measures must be taken.

“The mobile channel provides an immediacy and persistence of communication that is not possible via traditional channels, including the online channel,” said George Tubin, Senior Research Director for TowerGroup, a Corporate Executive Board Company. “The device is virtually always on and always available. But unprecedented growth in the use of mobile applications provides criminal groups a new, lucrative target to use sophisticated fraud techniques to defraud mobile users.”

Entrust product manager Mike Byrnes will join Tubin to host a webcast Wednesday, May 25, at 11 a.m. EDT, that focuses on leveraging mobile devices for stronger security.

George Tubin is a Senior Research Director in TowerGroup’s Retail Banking & Cards practice specializing in cross-industry research and financial information security. George’s areas of expertise include consumer online and mobile banking, online fraud and identity theft prevention, customer authentication, and enterprise fraud management strategies as well as general delivery channel strategies and technologies.

Mike Byrnes has more than 20 years experience in technology product management, marketing and business development. He has been with Entrust for 4 years leading the company’s Authentication, Fraud Detection and Secure Messaging solution areas. His responsibilities now involve leadership for Entrust’s products and strategy for consumer and business banking, including solutions for strong authentication, mobile security and fraud detection.
