Top factors impacting global mobile security market

Top Factors Impacting Global Mobile Security Market

Mobile payment

Current payment systems do not contain specific recommendations about accepting payments with mobile devices. The proliferation of mobile devices and their adoption are advancing rapidly which facilitates the payment card industry (PCI) data security standard to improvise on the mobile payments. The councils and organizations are developing point-to-point encryption solutions to secure mobile payments. Commencing financial transactions without hampering sensitive data would lead to a wide adoption of the technology in future. Based these features, impact of safety and security in mobile payments is expected to gain a large market share in future.


As smartphones and tablets gain popularity in the mobile device market, the proliferation of BYOD continues to gain momentum. Employees become more productive when they are allowed to work outside office. BYOD acts as an alternative strategy that allows employees, business partners and other users to use a personal device that execute applications and access data. Companies are following this strategy to keep their work environment productive and utilize opportunities by providing the usage cost to employees. The impact would increase in the future as numerous companies follow this trend.

Content protection

Increasing need of security has driven the development and implementation of mobile security solutions in protecting digital content. The digital content present in the mobile devices includes music, films and e-books which are downloaded by the users. Such applications not only require high level of security in protection against unauthorized access, but also require a high level of functionality to deliver quality features as expected by the end users. Content security solution providers are working with content copyright holders, technology providers and device manufactures for better understand level of security needed. Advancement in technology solutions to protect DRM, trusted playback, user authentication and trusted link protection would increase the adoption of the solution in future.

VPN protection

The unprecedented demand for smartphone and tablets creates ample business opportunities for mobile device manufacturers. There is an increased level of threat for mobile users in accessing the internet from open or public Wi-Fi hotspots. VPN’s are established for office use that allow users to log into the work network from remote places and gain access to the services that are required for operations. Advancements in VPN also help to access websites that may not be available in the specified region. Additional features provided by the solution providers along with VPN protection is expected to gain a wide adoption in future. 

Complexity in embedded system

With the constant rise in adoption of smartphone, tablets and other mobile devices, security issues are expected to become increasingly important and widespread in many embedded devices. Performance, price and reliability standards for the mobile need to be managed while conceptualizing these security solutions. The integrated solution is a combination of content from both security engineers and embedded system engineers which ultimately increases the complexity in the designed solution system. The battle to secure devices begins at the initial stage of device manufacturing. With an increasing adoption of security measures at initial development stage, the system designing complexity reduces to a great extent. 

Lack of awareness

The overall familiarity and awareness for mobile security solutions in certain regions is low. Lack of awareness regarding technology can act as a threat for the mobile security solutions industry. The technological advancements in providing security solutions to individual users and enterprises would facilitate the growth of the market.

Antivirus protection has always been the priority for mobile devices. Since the usage of smartphones and tablets have increased globally, these devices often contain personal and business information which requires data protection as well. Mobile security software incorporates antispam, antimalware, antivirus and ant-phishing technologies along with PIN and firewall protection. Mobile security software providing companies offers products with outstanding features such as on-demand and scheduled scans, activity log, online management tools and parental-control monitoring which are mostly adopted by the enterprises.


The BYOD trend is causing new security concerns for data security and enterprise networks. Enterprises allows the employees to use their personal devices and access enterprise networks and data bypass security controls and demand higher security measures. The uncontrolled access opens doors for malicious activities, leakage of sensitive data and exposure to malware. The proliferation and ever increasing demand of smart devices and BYOD trend is increasing concerns for enterprise data security. Mobile application management and mobile data protection enables the IT (enterprises) to manage and block specific types of apps based on categories. The mobile device authentication is the most emerging security software and is adopted by individual users along with the enterprises. The security software providing companies are bringing innovative solutions that works effectively on almost all the operating systems. The open source software application would again drive the market for the mobile security software. Adoption rate of mobile security software in North American countries is higher than the developing countries. Eventually, the mobile security software market should also mark a notable presence in the Asia-Pacific market.
