Meet the Mission with NowSecure GovAppDB™

Public sector IT requirements across federal, state and local governments center around a mission of mobile modernization with goals to drive workforce productivity, enable citizen communication and facilitate staff recruitment and retention. Across virtually all federal, state, civilian and DoD agencies, mobile apps increasingly are built directly such as Dept of Health, Homeland Security, State of Maryland, Census Bureau and NYC Public Works. From first responder to community information sharing, these mobile apps enhance staff and citizen engagement connecting from everywhere using a variety of devices, extending the agency’s security perimeter.

Power of 3: BESPIN, DevSecOps and SCRUM

NowSecure helps Federal, local or state agencies, including AirForce’s BESPIN software factory, deliver secure mobile apps anywhere, anytime, and for any mission. These three elements depend on synchronized automation, cooperation between Development and Operations and a real-time SCRUM framework.

Mobile apps are critical to enabling the Air Force to meet our mission around the world. We are excited to partner with experts like NowSecure to bring automated mobile app security testing and NIAP compliance into our BESPIN program. This new capability can help the Air Force, DoD and federal agencies confidently unleash more widespread development and use of mobile apps. From the SBIR award a year ago to shipping products today, we are achieving our goals of moving fast with continuous innovation.

MITRE Mobile ATT&CK Threat Framework

Public Sector clients should leverage the MITRE ATT&CK framework to better understand the mobile risks and threats their agency faces. This approach expedites implementation of mobile app security controls that are required to protect from specific types of real world threats found in mobile.

Mitigate Mobile App Risks with NowSecure

Mobile apps are infused across the public sector spanning from inventory to field service to time tracking and more. NowSecure covers all regulations, compliance and security testing across the entire user and supplier audience.

Meet and Maintain Continuous ATO Requirements

Authority to Operate (ATO) culminates from the security authorization requirements including speed, continuous uptime, monitoring and risk mitigation for mobile app leverage of information technology systems in the US federal government.

Understand the Requirements for Mobile App Developers

Mobile apps deliver real-time tracking, simplified communication across the supply chain and integrated the various processes. In a Frost & Sullivan research study to digitize the supply chain, mobile apps provide a savings of 20% in procurement costs, and a substantial 50% in overall supply chain costs. Continuous app development and delivery from developers is necessary for agencies to continue growing these benefits.
