HERNDON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--nVisium, a leader in application security, has released an expansion of their successful on-demand training and education platform, and is now offering secure development courses for iOS and Android. The courses will educate students to securely develop applications for Apple iOS 10 and Android Nougat operating systems by utilizing platform features as well as third-party libraries and tools.
In building secure mobile applications, developers should consider how best to protect data while in transit and on the device, as well as how to protect stored and shared user data. nVisium's developer-oriented approach to education utilizes intentionally-vulnerable applications, demonstrating secure coding in real-world scenarios. This approach has been extended into nVisium’s computer-based training by using continuous-integration techniques to implement application-specific vulnerability testing, providing real-time grading of a student’s secure coding abilities.
“While platforms themselves have made significant strides in security, the reality is mobile developers are our first and last line of defense. It’s important they know how to take advantage of techniques that will ensure their applications are resistant to attack without impacting the user experience,” said nVisium CEO Jack Mannino. “nVisium’s mobile training is designed to help developers master the most important security concepts and to implement them while building software.”
Unlike existing online learning platforms, nVisium’s on-demand courses are designed specifically for developers and mimic the developers’ environment. Students who master the courses and assigned challenges will have gained the ability to securely develop applications from the beginning of the SDLC and aid in the shift to building secure applications from the start.
Learn more about the new mobile courses through the upcoming webinar “nVisium On-Demand Training Expansion: Gamified iOS & Android Secure Development Courses” where nVisium’s CSO Seth Law and CTO Ken Johnson will walk through the course structure, content, and technology on June 28 at 2pm EST.
