Mobile application security refers to the protection of iOS and Android applications from reverse-engineering, tampering, and other threats.

Why is mobile app security important?

Mobile application security refers to the protection of iOS and Android applications from reverse-engineering, tampering, and other threats.

There are more than three billion smartphone users worldwide, and that number is expected to grow by several million in the next few years. Unfortunately, companies often prioritize speed of mobile development over app security, leaving their iOS and Android applications vulnerable to hackers. Common app security threats include mobile malware, credential harvesting, reverse-engineering and others. These threats can result in financial losses, reputational damages, customer data loss, IP theft and more.

What makes Guardsquare different?

Multi-layered app security

Guardsquare integrates multiple layers of security into the code of your mobile app, protecting against both static and dynamic analysis and runtime  threats. Code hardening (encryption and obfuscation) makes sure code is unreadable to hackers trying to reverse-engineer apps to alter source code or exploit vulnerabilities. Runtime application self-protection (RASP) protects against dynamic analysis and runtime attacks, enabling applications to monitor both their own integrity and the integrity of the environment in which they’re running.

Real-time threat monitoring

After an Android or iOS app is released, security teams and developers often lack visibility into the most common attack vectors and most targeted parts of their code. Real-time threat monitoring enables teams to identify threats, adapt their security configurations, and protect apps from suspicious activity and malicious users.

Security for the entire app development lifecycle

Guardsquare helps teams implement app security throughout the entire development lifecycle, from an app’s inception through each minor and major update. By hardening code and monitoring and defending against runtime threats, teams can continuously integrate security into their development pipelines.
