Appdome Auto Diagnostics Logs for Troubleshooting Secured Apps

Appdome is a no-code mobile app security platform designed to add security features to mobile apps.

Appdome’s no-code mobile app security platform offers mobile developers, DevSec, and security professionals a convenient and reliable way to protect Android and iOS apps without coding. When a user clicks “Build My App,” Appdome leverages a microservice architecture filled with 1000s of security plugins, and an adaptive code generation engine that matches the correct required plugins to the development environment, frameworks, and methods in each app.

Using Appdome, there are no development or coding prerequisites to build secured apps. There is no SDK and no library to manually code or implement in the app. The Appdome technology adds the relevant standards, frameworks, stores, and logic to the app automatically, with no manual development work at all.

Users can build their apps with diagnostic logs turn on and use Appdome Diagnostics Logs for troubleshooting their secured apps.
