Mobile Application Security Leader Sets Sights on Enabling Codeless Integration Across Any Mobile Application
AppDome, a leading mobile application integration services company, has appointed former Badgeville Executive Chairman Tom Tovar as its Chief Executive Officer. In this role, Tovar will lead the evolution and growth of AppDome into a codeless application integration services company. AppDome is also expanding its executive team with industry leaders in the mobility, security and cloud service markets.
AppDome, rated a Cool Vendor in Mobile Security by Gartner in 2015, will now offer its solution as a codeless mobile application integration service. Tovar is a go-to-market veteran with more than 20 years of leadership, sales and product experience in technology, cloud, SaaS, enterprise and security industries. Under his leadership, the company plans to apply its solution to several market areas including security, and offer mobile developers and application owners a new way to enhance, manage and connect their apps to 3rd party services.
“The enterprise needs mobile development and integration services that make it easy and seamless to connect apps to a wide range of external, cloud, and other services,” Tovar said. “By transforming the core of our platform into a SaaS solution, we allow integration points to be implemented at breakneck speed without forcing customers to build to SDKs or complete long-lead source code level integrations.”

Today, AppDome’s cutting-edge technological developments ensure end-to-end mobile application protection, providing an essential shield that secures enterprise and consumer-facing apps from advanced cyber threats, mobile fraud and data leakage.
