Mobile Security Expert, AirPatrol CEO to Speak on Dangers of Mobile Banking and Importance of Securing Devices at the AGC Partner's Conference

COLUMBIA, MD--(Marketwire - Oct 12, 2012) - How big of a security risk is mobile banking and what can you do about it? Mobile security expert and technology executive Cleve Adams will detail the fresh banking security risks raised by a new generation of mobile devices and discuss security options at the 9th Annual East Coast Tech Growth Conference to be held October 16 at the Westin Copley Place (10 Huntington Ave, Boston).

There are over 6 billion mobile subscriptions worldwide; three out of every four people have access to a mobile phone and over 50% of US citizens alone have smartphones. In a time where convenience may win over security, mobile apps that use and store sensitive information are multiplying and the risk of data-loss is skyrocketing.

Adams, CEO of mobile device security firm AirPatrol, will explain risks that mobile devices pose to individuals and enterprises, especially financial institutions. With BYOD gaining popularity, the number of unmanaged or unknown devices connecting to corporate networks is a gaping hole in risk management policy. Available options for mobile device policy management as well as an overview on AirPatrol mobile device security and context-aware solutions will be covered.

Adams has more than two decades of software industry experience, with a focus on mobile and wireless. An experienced speaker, Adams is regularly featured at the Harvard Alumni Association and investor conferences. Adams' newly acquired position of CEO at AirPatrol brings a spotlight on financial, healthcare and technology enterprise markets.
