Mobile apps are integral to our everyday activities. As we continue to increase our usage of tablets and smartphones, apps have become the primary way we manage our personal and professional livelihood. A business can suffer if they don’t offer an easy-to-use app for their customers.
As customers use your app to bank, shop or interact with healthcare providers, your organization is handling sensitive financial, personal and health information. App users simply expect that you have integrated security into the experience. As a result, you need to ensure your security and development teams strike the balance of securing the mobile experience without hindering it.
With pressure to ensure your customers have the best mobile experience, developers are often tasked to quickly bring innovative app updates to market. Since security and development teams have traditionally operated separately, it is difficult to ensure that each new version of your app is secure.
Moreover, there are severe limitations to how traditional malware detection solutions secure mobile apps. Threat protection relies on security telemetry from third-party databases and can only detect threats based on signatures and hashes. As a result, weeks-long protection gaps can leave your customer’s exposed to real-time threats.
