The COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed how work gets done and ushered in the rise of the remote workforce. Companies responded to this “new normal” by strategically allowing employees to permanently work from home (WFH). In turn, employees have embraced mobile apps to collaborate with each other and remain productive.
Mobile apps are key for a successful remote workforce. Enterprise priorities must shift immediately to ensuring all remote workers can reliably get work done using new and existing secure mobile apps.
CISOs, as well as IT, Security and DevSecOps teams have to adjust rapidly to deliver consistently secured mobile apps for a completely remote workforce as soon as possible to keep the business running, secure and productive.
We believe in protecting everything mobile, including people, memories, transactions, work, connections and more.

74% of Companies Plan to Permanently Shift to More Remote Work Post COVID-19
Even before COVID-19, organizations were building native and hybrid mobile apps, and using more 3rd party mobile apps, for business and employees. In addition, enterprises and B2E app makers alike are increasingly using public app stores to distribute workplace mobile apps to the digital workforce and remote workers. The Verizon Mobile Security Index found that apps downloaded from official stores can be compromised or introduce vulnerabilities due to poor coding.
The challenge for CISOs and DevSecOps team in supporting a remote workforce is securing these apps and make them compatible with their enterprise environments, including conditional access, authentication and access policies.
