Jeff Wilson Principal Analyst, Security“The popularity of SMS and MMS has soared over the last decade, but carriers around the globe are just now beginning to seriously evaluate and deploy SMS/MMS security gateway solutions, forced by economic, regulatory, and attack conditions,” notes Jeff Wilson, principal analyst for security at Infonetics Research. Continues Wilson: “A trend we’re seeing as a result of regulatory pressure is major carriers in a region looking at SMS/MMS security solutions as a group and selecting a single vendor or technology, causing initial adoption to happen at once in that country or region, like Cloudmark/TeleDNA’s recent deployment in India.”  Read More Mobile security gateway market to close 2013 up 70% as carriers step up battle against spam, threats
