Vokal Selects NowSecure to Advance Mobile Application Security

The Two Mobile-First Companies Combine Forces to Offer the Most Comprehensive Mobile Security Solution for a Digital Agency

CHICAGO--()--Vokal announced today that it will begin offering its enterprise and startup clients the industry’s most advanced mobile application security testing and analytics from NowSecure – making Vokal the only mobile-first digital agency with a comprehensive mobile app security strategy. The addition of NowSecure’s industry leading solution is part of Vokal’s continued evolution of integrated service offerings, which puts mobile security at the top of its priority list for clients and their audiences.

“You can design and develop a mobile experience that has all the latest bells and whistles, but if you can’t secure customer and enterprise data, then the product is worthless,” said Reid Lappin, Founder and CEO of Vokal. “Our deep mobile heritage allows us to understand the landscape better than anyone, especially the importance of identifying and preventing vulnerabilities within a custom mobile application. Building safe and protected mobile experiences has always been a priority and our work with NowSecure takes it to an entirely new level – setting a new agency standard in secure mobility.”

Beginning today, Vokal will offer its current and future clients best-in-class mobile security testing and analytics through NowSecure Lab™, which allows developers and security managers to reduce security risks through automated and customized vulnerability testing. NowSecure Lab will equip Vokal’s engineering team with advanced testing and analytics capabilities that allow for even greater mobile security – reducing the risk of breaches and unauthorized access to valuable data.

Leading developers and security analysts worldwide count on NowSecure Lab as a comprehensive solution for mobile app security assessments:

  • Designed to test for security and privacy issues in owned and third party apps across the Secure Software Development Life Cycle (SSDLC)
  • Delivers streamlined app testing during development to preemptively eliminate risk before it affects business and customers and improve overall efficiency
  • Checks for issues in apps already publicly available in the app stores
  • Provides the ability to control testing conditions
  • Can run unlimited tests and automated results in minutes

“While many in the industry still focus on malware, the real issue is unsecured mobile devices and apps that leak sensitive data,” said Andrew Hoog, CEO of NowSecure. “Vokal is a thought leader and clearly understands that mobility requires a new kind of security. By offering a comprehensive mobile security strategy to its clients, Vokal is uniquely able to provide security through the entire software development lifecycle. NowSecure Lab empowers their software engineers to conduct the most comprehensive testing and analytics available today.”
