Ensuring Security & Privacy of Public Mobile App Stores

Tuned to your enterprise threat model, the NowSecure automated approach continuously monitors the security, compliance and privacy risks by proactively vetting the mobile app supply chain before mobile app installation can compromise sensitive data or places mobile users at risk.

Proactively Manage Your Mobile App Portfolio

Build policy & governance for mobile apps allowed on employee- and government-owned devices. Integrate mobile app vetting with MDM/EMM products powering whitelist and blacklists of mobile apps to prevent security and privacy compromises – no device agent required. NowSecure demonstrates mobile app vetting today in live running benchmarks.

Continuously Monitoring Ensures Enterprise Protection

Mobile apps often expose sensitive data, conceal vulnerable code, and provide valuable reconnaissance (e.g., corporate credentials) for cross-channel attacks. Ever faster release cycles of mobile apps threaten to push updates to public app stores with new vulnerabilities or regressions that escape into the wild due to lack of proper testing. Organizations must continuously monitor for any new external risks leveraging industry standards. Stay current and act accordingly.

Supply-Chain Sensitive Mobile App Security Test Cases

Supply chain attacks rose by 42% last year in the U.S. alone, impacting millions of organizations and users. Always-present mobile app threats spotlight supply chain security as more important than ever for several reasons.

Poor supply chain visibility

Lack of insight into third-party supplier or subcontractor provided mobile apps poses major security and compliance risks, especially regulated industries

Compromised data

Leaking data, PII through insecure transmission or insecure storage can lead to theft, breaches, and malicious use by cybercriminals and rogue nation states

Business Reputation damage

Unsecured mobile apps often harm organization’ reputation and potentially result in operational downtime, financial losses, legal action, and regulatory fines.

Third-party mobile app vetting

Attacks often originate with trusted software solution providers unknowingly impacted by malware injection via updates and subsequent user downloads

Remediating Supply Chain cybersecurity

Proactive, measurable communication and analytics across suppliers ensures a repeatable baseline level of security lowering risk

IoT-Connected Mobile App Supply Chain

Widespread use of Internet of Things (IoT) devices to track inventories, manage access, monitor physical buildings, manage power systems and process activities amplifies cybersecurity supply chain risk
