Introducing Appdome TOTALData™ Encryption

By |2019-05-31T22:56:56+00:00March 5th, 2019|

Appdome is proud to announce the newest addition to its Appdome Mobile Security Suite: TOTALData™ Encryption, a new service that protects mobile app data, regardless of how that data is generated or stored by the app. TOTALData Encryption protects all data coded, created and used by the app.

Appdome TOTALData Encryption

Consumer and enterprise mobile apps create, store and use rich amounts of data to provide worthwhile experiences to their users. Truth be told, there is no “one-way” mobile apps generate, access or store data. Mobile apps are made to take advantage of multi-dimensional pockets of data from everywhere, inside the app, by the app and by the user of the app. Even deep within the logic of the app, external services and SDKs write and retrieve data in their own way. Without this data, nothing works. With so many different ways that apps generate data, there is simply no one-size-fits-all approach to secure data. This is why manually adding Android data encryption and iOS data encryption is such a daunting undertaking. 

The First Comprehensive Mobile Data Encryption Service You Can Deploy in Under 5 Minutes

Implementing Appdome TOTALData Encryption in an app is easy on Appdome. Appdome users upload an app, select what and how to protect mobile app data and click “Build My App.” Appdome’s AI-Mobile Integration (AMI) platform takes care of the rest – doing the work a team of developers would have to do to protect the data of the app, including generating or managing keys, storing encryption keys, and fine-tuning your encryption list.

Appdome TOTALData Encryption is a complete solution. It not only protects the mobile app sandbox, but it also encrypts in-app preferences, in-app strings & preferences, in-app secrets, signing keys and certificates, authentication tokens, client certs, and so much more. Customers have granular control over what to encrypt (and what to exclude). Customers can also generate and manage shared and seeded encryption keys from external systems. 

Quantum Leap Ahead of Any Other Mobile Data Encryption Solution

Appdome TOTALData Encryption introduces new features for Android data encryption and iOS data encryption projects:

  • Dozens of Encryption Models. What makes Appdome TOTALData Encryption so powerful is the ability to create flexible encryption models to suit different mobile app use cases. For example, at a basic level, a user can now set the encryption level for all protected data stores. By default, Appdome uses industry standard AES 256 (Enterprise Grade) Encryption. However, users also have the ability to utilize FIPS 140-2 (Military Grade) Encryption to protect all data stores. By default, Appdome generates and uses its own encryption keys.
  • Encryption Using In-App Seed. New for this release, users can now select from a variety of brand new key generation and management features. These features allow virtually endless combinations of shared and managed encryption keys, including seeded keys from external systems and derived keys generated from in-app events such as a log-in or other user event.
  • SMARTApp™ Offline Access. This new capability provides mobile end-users offline access to encrypted files and data stored in the app – even if the app is not connected to a network. File access and other protected data can be set for a configurable time period – as long as relevant conditions are met.
  • AMI Secure Enclaves™ – The newest generation of mobile microprocessors are now powered by chipsets designed from the ground up with segmented areas for encrypted data. In iOS, this concept is known as a “Secure Enclave“. In Android, it’s known as a “TrustZone“. Appdome has introduced a new feature, called AMI Secure Enclaves, to take advantage of this new secure chipset architecture. If customers enable the AMI Secure Enclave feature from within TOTALData Encryption, Appdome automatically adjusts the encryption method to take advantage of these new secure enclaves, if available. Expect to see more of this sort of environment-awareness inside Appdome-Fused apps in the future.

All of this advanced functionality comes with the exact same value proposition as other Appdome services. Developers and non-developers alike can add Android data encryption and iOS data encryption to any mobile app – instantly, without code or coding.  Like other services, there are no pre-requisites for the app. No SDK or Library to add to the app. Just upload, select and click “Build My App” to protect every piece of data created and used by your app today!
