Prevent Vishing (Voice Phishing)

Vishing, or "voice phishing," is a type of social engineering attack where attackers use phone calls to trick individuals into providing sensitive information or performing harmful actions. In a vishing attack, the attackers typically pose as a trustworthy entity, such as a bank, government agency, or technical support, and use various psychological tactics to manipulate the victim. Appdome uses behavioral analysis to detect when mobile end users’ activity in a mobile app coincides with a potentially malicious phone call.

Block Facial Recognition Bypass

Facial recognition bypass occurs when an unauthorized individual finds a way to deceive or trick the facial recognition system, gaining access to the device or app without the legitimate user's permission. There are many mechanisms for spoofing images, such as intercepting and modifying the camera preview data from other apps while the preview shown to the user remains unchanged. Appdome detects when an attacker or malware attempts to spoof, fake or bypass biometric (facial) recognition in Android and iOS apps.

Detect SIM Swapping

SIM swapping is a type of identity theft and social engineering attack targeting mobile phone users. In a SIM swapping attack, the perpetrator takes control of a victim's mobile phone number by convincing the victim's mobile carrier to transfer the phone number to a new SIM card in a device that the attacker controls. With control over the victim's phone number, the attacker can reset passwords, receive authentication codes (MFA passcodes, OTP tokens), and gain access to various accounts linked to the victim's phone number, including email, social media, and mobile banking, and financial accounts. Appdome detects when an attacker uses the mobile app with a replacement SIM card.

Anti-Remote Desktop Controls

Remote access and control software, like TeamViewer, are designed for legitimate purposes like troubleshooting problems in apps, and devices remotely. However, they are often used by attackers in social engineering scams to compromise user privacy, steal data, gather credentials, and conduct account takeovers. Appdome’s Anti Remote Desktop Control detects and blocks third-party applications attempting remote control, along with disabling accessibility services that facilitate remote desktop control actions.

Admin-MDM Profile Detection

Malware or attackers can trick mobile users into installing super user admin profiles or mobile device management (MDM) profiles through social engineering, for example by impersonating a member of the victim's IT department at work and telling them they need to install the profile "for their protection." Once installed, attackers gain control over the device (e.g. control the camera, microphone, audio), allowing them to steal data, spy on users, propagate malware, or engage in espionage. Appdome identifies the presence of intrusive profiles installed on devices, which could compromise user privacy and security.

Prevent Remote Access Trojans

Remote Access Trojans (RATs) can mimick real apps or files that a user is tricked into installing. Once activated, RATs establish a connection to CnC server, or trick the user to grant permissions the malware can exploit, enabling the attacker to gain control over the victim's app or device, steal data or deploy more malware. Appdome detects and prevents attacks against Android & iOS apps from RATs and other fake apps, preventing both data harvesting/privilege escalation, as well as the exfiltration and theft that occurs as a result of the harvesting.

Google Play Signature Validation

Cyber-criminals and hackers often create fake apps, clones or mods by reverse engineering and copying legitimate Android apps and then repackaging, re-signing, and re-distributing those apps on alternative, malicious or non-approved app stores. Appdome's Google Play Signature Validation ensures that apps code signed for Google Play cannot be distributed through any other app stores or methods.

Apple App Store Validation

Fraudsters use various methods to create fake apps by copying or cloning existing popular apps and then repackaging, re-signing, and re-distributing those apps on alternative app stores. Appdome's iOS App Store Signature Validation validates that apps code signed for Apple App Store can't be distributed through any other app stores or methods.

Better Social Engineering Data

If you're looking for better social engineering prevention data, Appdome's ThreatScope™ provides real-time, detailed social engineering attack data from the mobile app, including attack type, geo-source and ThreatScore™ for each event, as well as meta data about the impacted device, such as device make, model, DeviceID, Android & iOS version and more. With ThreatScope, you know exactly what, when, where, and how a social engineering attack was attempted in your app, whether existing defenses worked to stop the attack, and what new defenses should be deployed to further minimize social engineering against your apps.
