Small-to-medium sized businesses (SMB) are increasingly relying upon web-based applications and web-enabled services for running their business. Applications such as CRM, e-commerce transactions and other web-enabled applications are accessed both locally and remotely from outside the business facilities. These web-based applications are vulnerable to attacks from viruses, intrusions, and denial of service (DoS) attacks, as traffic comes into the network through various ports and firewalls without being inspected.
It wasn’t long ago that being on the cutting edge of business meant having a website where customers could purchase your products, but that quickly changed. Soon, it wasn’t enough just to have an e-commerce presence; you had to offer an interactive and engaging customer experience (see Web 2.0).
Now the standard has shifted once again; in order to truly compete in the modern economy, your business needs to have a mobile storefront on smart phones and tablets. Without this mobile presence, you’ll lose business to competitors who have them.
With this new challenge comes high risk as well as great reward. With mobility, the client side of your applications is more important than ever. Instead of accessing your website from the safe confines of work or home, your customers can now perform sensitive transactions anywhere. As a result, mobile applications, and the devices and data they interact with, can now be more easily attacked.
