    A Look Back at Mobile App Security Best Tips and Insights

    The ramifications of having an unprotected mobile app go beyond impacting user experience. In fact, when you consider that mobile apps are distributed and run outside an organization’s network, there are significant risks for an attack, and this can have a devastating impact on an organization.

    Mobile apps are a lucrative target for threat actors, especially with mobile apps predicted to generate more than $935 billion in revenue by 2023.

    So how do you secure your mobile app (and your organization’s) reputation and bottom line? By testing the app early in the development process, applying multiple layers of protection, and consistently monitoring it once it is published so you have visibility into potential threats.
