Eric Jackson recently wrote an op-ed in Forbes where he argued that Web 2.0 companies like Facebook may fade into obscurity like the Web 1.0 companies before them as we evolve out of the World Wide Web entirely. He argues that there will be no Web 3.0, that the Web is dying and the mobile space is its natural and inevitable successor. Whether or not the Googles and Facebooks will fade as mobile devices increasingly become the primary tools on which we access the Internet is debatable. However, the fact that mobile devices are rapidly replacing the traditional desktop computer is beyond dispute.
Likewise, as consumers migrate to mobile devices, so go the cybercriminals and security industry as well, and as a recent study found, the adoption of mobile devices seems to be outpacing our ability to secure those devices.
