The data are merciless: cybercrime kills more than one million victims a day all over the world with hundreds of billions damages.
Often damaging or disrupting essential services as well.
In Europe, the victims are 12 per second: think that in 2015 cybercriminals have developed 230,000 different forms of “malware”. The 80% of the companies taking part of the TOP 500 Fortune has suffered a violation of their systems. Discovering it almost five months later.
And as companies are investing (and there is also a great shortage of skilled human resources in IT security), we cannot consider ourselves untouchable or immune.
There are surely precautions to be taken, but the only real security paradoxically would be not making any “on line” activity, a fact which is no longer viable.
Another solution is to acquire real-time Alert Infrastructures, able to – for example – check out the success of a withdrawal, of a payment by credit card, a bank transfer, a short digital business that invests our finances or our “data.”
The growth of notifications, both on dispositive and informative services, keeps the double-digit percentage.
Because they are fast.
They have optimal delivery and reading rates.
They work (in the case of SMS) on all generation of mobile handsets.
In short, they are flexible and still show their muscles.
Which are, then, the used systems?
Ubiquity handles both Premium notification, paid for by the end user and Bulk notification, free for the receiver. In both cases, the services are provided through secure connections with Mobile Network Operators or other international partners.
In the case of Push Notification, the service offer is more centralized and clearer compared to the other providers with fallback message. For the E-Mail service, the Platform provides the management of transactions and marketing campaigns.
Among the most used services provided by this Platform, there are the management of Alert (hundred of millions sent, with the famous Mobile Finance Report published 2 times per year), the One Time Password (see previous article on this Blog) and PIN Codes sent via SMS.
