Mobile app security vulnerabilities have put the U.S. Navy and Marines, the Ukrainian military, and military bases and installations around the world in harm’s way. hackers and nation states could learn the locations of troops using the mobile apps, and in some cases could also access other highly sensitive operational information. Learn how National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) mobile app vetting requirements help reduce risk to federal missions.
Mobile apps are critical to enabling the U.S. federal agencies such as the U.S Department of Defense to meet their mission. Core to that mission is ensuring a high security testing bar for the mobile apps they build and use. Until now, completing that security compliance testing has been a complicated, time-consuming manual process that was built for web apps, not mobile apps. Today, NowSecure is announcing the world’s first automated NIAP Mobile App Vetting solution that supports NIAP v1.3 Mobile App Vetting Protection Profile for Application Software.
As organizations dig into secure coding and testing best practices, they quickly discover a variety of sometimes confusing approaches and solutions for mobile app security testing. Security professionals and leaders alike can ease the process of finding the testing tools that best fit their needs by requiring mobile app security standards in their selection criteria.
Learn what’s included in the NIAP mobile app vetting requirements and how to apply those security requirements when developing and vetting mobile apps.
Many government agencies are not taking full advantage of the productivity gains and cost savings that can come from using mobile apps, and part of that hesitation probably comes from concerns about security.
