SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Appthority, The Authority in App Security™, announced today it is collaborating with Apperian to help create a safer enterprise mobile environment. The companies have enabled the integration of the Appthority Platform™ with Apperian’s EASE, allowing businesses to quantify and manage the security risks hidden in mobile apps before they get deployed in the enterprise.
The Appthority Platform will be available as an option in Apperian’s EASE (Enterprise App Service Environment) mobile application management (MAM) platform. The solution will help businesses to quantify the potential risk of mobile applications for both iOS and Android, before they are made available to users. This solution will support in-house apps, as well as public apps available on iTunes App Store, Google Market, and other locations across the web.
“Businesses are increasingly looking for a way to ensure that apps are written using best practices, including apps that they have built, sourced from third party developers, or that are downloaded to devices from public app stores,” said Cimarron Buser, VP, Business Development for Apperian. “Our partnership with Appthority means that customers can instantly determine risk factors before apps are deployed to users, such as if an app is sending information to a server over an non-secured connection. This type of technology is increasingly important as companies deploy internal enterprise app stores, and provides an extra check for IT administrators and security staff.”
Appthority’s platform automatically identifies and grades risky behavior including known and unknown malware, new malware used in targeted attacks, corporate data exfiltration, and intellectual property exposure. Appthority, recently named “The Most Innovative Company of RSA® Conference 2012”, said businesses have been waiting for this functionality.
“The ‘bring your own device’ (BYOD) movement has turned mobile apps into enterprise software over night,” said Domingo Guerra, Co-Founder and President of Appthority. “By offering the Appthority Platform to their customers, Apperian is allowing business to have the information they need to make informed decisions regarding mobile policy. IT administrators no longer have to treat apps as ‘black boxes’ and can now identify, and more importantly, manage their risk exposure.”
