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.

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
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
