The day when everyone has a PC in their pocket has arrived and developers are rushing to create mobile applications to meet demand. These engineers are caught between the expectations of their users and the unique technical challenges of building applications for the mobile platform.

Knowing the risks and how to respond to them is the only hope for creating a secure experience for your mobile users.
