ECommerce must integrate mobile payments carefully

Although mobile adoption flew through the roof in 2011, Ericka Chickowski of Dark Reading said eCommerce companies should use caution when entering the mobile payment arena. For those who choose to do so, using SSL certificates and following PCI compliance should help go a long toward security.

Chickowski said diving head-first into mobile payments is something that both thrills and terrifies companies and their executives, as it is a revenue builder but continues to be shrouded in security concerns. She said enterprises should follow a comprehensive approach to security of this type of action.

Michael Iseyemi, global chief security officer for Aditya Birla Minacs said that for mobile payments, eCommerce businesses need to consider data security when transmitting information.

Motorola said using SSL certificates on a mobile payment platform can help a business transmit information and data safely. Businesses looking to get into the world of mobile payments should make sure security is on point before bringing it to the public.
