A recent article in Internet Retailer noted that, according to a study by researchers eMarketer Inc., US consumers will make $18.2 billion in purchases on their smartphones this year, an increase of 143% over 2011.
With massive data breaches increasingly making the news, retailers are relying on vendors to provide an extra layer of protection by ensuring their mobile shopping apps are secure. The article highlights the work of Malauzai Software, a company that develops apps for the banking industry, and how they are utilizing viaLab for their security testing.
