Smart phones seem to be in the hands of everyone, from children to adults. Many feel that owning and using a smart phone or a Blackberry is a lot easier than carrying around a bulky laptop. Recent studies have shown that there is room for concern over the security of the smart phone. Do you feel that you information is safe on your smart phone? The problem is that many don’t really think about it until something happens. By then it is too late and criminals already have all the information that they need to rip you off. Fortunately for those of us who do not think about such things there are plenty of IT staff members who do. In a recent article called “Smart Phones a Bigger Security Risk”, they go into detail about how many IT executives are already starting to look into the problem. Many are concerned about their employees who use these devices on a daily basis to transmit information. There are many people who use their smart phones to transmit more than just pictures or the basic everyday email. Smart phones are often used to transmit financial transactions and to store personal banking and credit card information.
In recent studies it has also been found that many people just don’t take the time to protect their smart phone. Some may feel that this is something that should be automatic so that they don’t have to worry about it. Since there are major corporations looking to protect this precious information there is no doubt that new technology will soon make smart phones safer than ever. The question on the minds of many is, who will make the ultimate security system for 2020? There are so many companies constantly coming out with new versions of smart phones but will any of them have the ultimate security system that consumers are looking for?
Of course there are some security programs that are currently on the market such as Trend Micro Mobile Security. This security system will protect your smart phone from viruses and worms, and the occasional hacker. The problem is however that many people just don’t have the money to purchase these additional software programs. It would be perfect if the new smart phone to hit the market in 2020 actually has a built in protection that will fight viruses and hackers. It will not only give consumers piece of mind but it would also mean big money for the company that designs it. Many are speculating that this is something that is already in the works and will be released in 2020.
It did not take long for the idea of smart phones to catch on rather quickly. Now many are waiting to see if next years new line of smart phones will include technology to keep it safe. With the current financial situation of many getting worse each day, it is becoming even more important to protect what you have. In 2020 more people will feel the need to keep their information safer than ever, and be more cautious of new technology. You can ask yourself whether or not it is worth the investment for a new smart phone without the technology to protect it. So who will be the one to create the perfect smart phone in 2020? We will just have to wait and see.
