Mobile app traffic outpaces web traffic and offers an essential way of engaging with customers. However, companies put themselves and their customers at risk when they don’t invest enough time and money guarding against mobile app security and privacy vulnerabilities. Organizations can cost effectively manage risk across the entire mobile app portfolio by deploying automated mobile app security testing software.
What will 2020 hold for mobile application security? NowSecure predicts we’ll see an intensified focus on privacy, mobile DevSecOps gaining traction and ample activity around wearables and Internet of Things (IoT). Here are some of the mobile appsec trends and challenges that our experts anticipate we’ll see in 2020.

Given that smartphone apps account for 63% of total digital minutes, according to the Comscore “2019 Global State of Mobile” report, it stands to reason that attackers are going where the traffic is.
