22 July 2004 Security remains an issue Lack of security is undermining wireless technologies. Despite the utopian appeal of a completely connected, yet unwired, society, widespread adoption of wireless technology is being hindered by its lack of reliable security measures, according to a market report from Technical Insights. Any system can be broken, but the disparate approach taken by suppliers of wireless equipment seems especially worrisome to adopters, who in turn get the feeling that the customer – and therefore their return on investment – is holding back from fully embracing it, particularly for financial transactions. “If manufacturers or licence holders hope to receive any profit from their investments, they will first have to convince consumers that wireless transactions are at least as secure as landline based operations, if not more so,” said Technical Insights’ research analyst, Sathyaraj Radhakrishnan.
