In recent years, the concept of “Anywhere, Anytime Computing” has become the common denominator in driving personal electronic device sales, as users are adopting to new categories of devices such as smartphones, tablets, and smartTVs. These devices enable consumers and employees to access information and services from almost any device at any time. Gartner studies show that the estimated mobile phone market is to reach 1.8 billion devices in 2013.
The year 2011 ended with a staggering 5.9 billion mobile phone subscriptions, especially significant considering that the total world population is around 7.011 billion. Of course, a direct comparison is not fair since many people have multiple subscriptions, but it represents a window into the pervasiveness of these devices and how they are an integral part of people’s lives today. For enterprises, this also represents the impending end to the old computing era and the emergence of the mobile worker.
Enabling mobility in the workplace is a top-of-mind goal for decision-makers within every organization. This necessity is brought about by the consumerization of IT and the requirement to develop policies to manage the “bring-your-own-device” (BYOD) trend.
Mobile devices are everywhere. 95% of UK millennials now use smartphones1; and it’s estimated that across the globe, nearly a billion more people now use mobile phones today than did five years ago.2 Mobile commerce will continue to grow as smartphones continue to be adopted. For example, forecasts for Europe’s EU 5 (France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom) show mCommerce will account for 43.8% of eCommerce sales by 2020, compared to 32.9% in 2016.3 As fraud teams determine which orders to accept or reject, fraud managers are key to providing a seamless mobile checkout experience. But they also need to protect their business from fraud – and from the damage it can cause to bottom line, customer experience and brand.
Thanks to new mobile technologies, work happens everywhere today. It might be responding to email on the morning train or uploading a customer contract during a cross-town cab ride. Your workers need this level of connectivity to compete. At the same time, you likely face unprecedented budgetary challenges.

Ready or not, the global mobility trend is forcing enterprises to enable a modern, mobile workforce with business productivity tools on any device, regardless of the underlying operating system. As enterprise users increasingly demand the ability to use their own mobile devices and desktops for modern work, IT is quickly impacted by end-user technology decisions. Enterprises can no longer ignore this reality, especially given the explosive global demand for mobile devices. Considering that smartphone adoption is expected to grow from 1.47 billion devices in 2016 to more than 1.7 billion in 2021, it’s clear that organizations need a comprehensive way to quickly onboard and secure a vast range of employee devices coming into the enterprise.

This White Paper explores how the proliferation of smartphones and tablets (the global installed base of smartphones alone is set to hit 3 billion devices by 2017) has led consumers to adopt new behaviours, and develop expectations around what experiences mobile computing can offer.
By 2014, smartphones and tablets will put power in the pockets of a billion global consumers, including your employees and partners and customers.

But mobile engagement will also require wholesale changes to your app design, service delivery, IT skills, technology assets, and even your business model. This report lays out a vision for mobile engagement and introduces the strategic elements developed further in The CIO's Mobile Engagement playbook.

For a long time, the phone channel was thought to be
isolated and less important to defend, when compared
to the physical and online channels. The general consensus
was that fraudsters could only steal so much over the
phone, and it had little impact on fraud across the rest of
But those assumptions are wrong, and they’re becoming
grossly inaccurate as technology evolves. The phone
channel is now more vulnerable and exploitable than ever
before, as annual fraud loss is now a $14 billion problem.
Between aggressive fraud rings, social engineering and
sophisticated techniques, vulnerable call centers are
feeling the sting. Legacy and stand-alone solutions won’t
stand up to the perseverance and lengths to which fraudsters
are willing to go.
