Mobile applications drive growth and productivity. To deliver this value, they store, process, and transmit vast amounts of confidential information and access critical backend systems. The app’s source code, data, and crypto keys together make this possible. But all these components are vulnerable to static and dynamic inspection by bad actors and on-device runtime abuse by malware and hostile environments.
Organizations offering iOS or Android apps need a comprehensive, layered mobile app security strategy to protect confidential data, intellectual property, and the customers they serve. This approach must also be practical for developers and should:
- Not cause significant development delays,
- Be easily implemented,
- Not affect app performance,
- Keep pace with rapidly evolving threats.
