No two organizations face the same challenges in securing their mobile applications — variables include the type of mobile app, frequency of release, maturity of the application security testing program, staffing levels and a host of other factors. But what many companies have in common is that they rely on NowSecure automated mobile application security testing solutions and services to verify the apps they build and buy are safe for use by customers and employees. Learn how MyOwnMed and Vaporstream have strengthened security of their mobile apps and the successes they’ve enjoyed thanks in part to their use of NowSecure services and solutions.
Reducing friction in the mobile app dev pipeline calls for scaling security to reduce risk while keeping pace with ever-increasing release frequency and volume. The best way to accomplish that is to integrate automated mobile app security testing directly into the Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) toolchain.
Because most organizations already have a lot of processes in place, it’s essential to integrate mobile appsec testing as seamlessly as possible into existing workflows rather than create new ones. The NowSecure platform features plug-ins and an API to integrate with a wide range of popular DevOps tools.

While mobile app security testing is fairly new, we still see a considerable share of BS from vendors. Inspired by a similar DoD document for Agile, we created our own list of crucial capabilities and key questions to ask prospective tool vendors.
DevOps isn’t an overnight transformation. The process is more akin to modernizing a well-loved 40-year-old house. Read on to see how the two transformations are more similar than you might think.
In the quest to speed development of secure mobile apps, many of our customers plug automated appsec testing directly into their CI/CD toolchain. NowSecure embraces the fundamental principles of secure DevOps — leverage automation, integration, and speed to reduce friction and drive continuous improvement. Because mobile app development is fundamentally different than web app development,
Enterprise mobility management (EMM) and mobile device management (MDM), containerization, mobile app security testing and certification, and 3rd-party mobile app vetting or mobile app reputation services (MARS) all play an important role in a solid, effective mobile app security strategy.
