Today we announce a new partnership with WhiteHat Security whereby automated static, dynamic, and interactive mobile app security testing technology from NowSecure will power the WhiteHat Sentinel Mobile ExpressTM offering. WhiteHat customers will benefit from enhanced mobile app security testing within the WhiteHat SentinelTM platform that fuses app security assessment technology with human intelligence to deliver verified results.
This is an exciting day for us because our relationship with WhiteHat Security is just one of the first partner announcements coming from NowSecure in the weeks and months ahead.
Partnerships are a strategic element in our growth plan. As NowSecure has grown and our customer base has expanded, so too have our opportunities for partnering with complementary product and services companies.
Our automated mobile app security testing technology is without equal and because it’s a cloud-hosted service it is scalable beyond any on-premise capability. NowSecure possesses strong leadership in a technically challenging segment of the security industry. Mobility in all its forms – devices, networks, and apps – requires new approaches to testing, intelligence, and validation.
Enterprises are building and deploying more mobile apps more quickly than ever before. Market intelligence firm IDC predicts that the number of mobile apps developed by enterprises will increase fourfold by 2018. Gartner says it’s safe to assume that testing will reveal exploitable security flaws in half of apps and predicts that by next year most mobile security breaches will result from insecure mobile apps.
The way to handle the volume and pace of mobile development while reducing the risk associated with mobile apps is through automation. Partners can take advantage of our automated technology and augment it with additional layers of services and/or products to serve specific sectors, customer groups, and new technology opportunities – such as the Internet of Things (IoT).
WhiteHat Security delivers a powerful and proven capability with the Sentinel platform, and by working together we strengthen their focus on mobility and drive more value to their extensive customer base.
Here’s what makes our automated mobile app security technology different:
- Automated static, dynamic, and interactive app security testing (SAST, DAST, and IAST) of both Android and iOS apps on demand
- Installs and runs apps on physical Android and iOS devices in the cloud, as opposed to emulators, to create a realistic testing environment with more accurate results and fewer false positives
- Assesses developer-signed Android and iOS binaries, rather than source code
Our technology is unique and not easily replicated. Our automated approach has been validated by numerous market analysis firms, security teams, and CISOs and executives at the world’s largest banking, healthcare, insurance, and government organizations.
