Startup’s Technology Solves Mobile Security Frustration, Automates Mobile App Integration
Redwood City, Calif. – Oct. 18, 2016 – Looking to ensure the broad adoption of mobile app security, Appdome, the mobile industry’s first cloud service that automates mobile integration, has taken the bold step of offering its award-winning security suite to all users of its new mobile integration AppFusion platform for free – forever.
Security holds a place of prominence for mobile developers and users alike, especially in enterprise. Recent studies show that 76 percent of CIOs mark security as the top concern. The problem, 56 percent of enterprises admit, is that with the app security offered today, companies are unlikely to detect a sophisticated mobile threat. Enterprises expect mobile security, but the process of adding tight security to an application is often an expensive and time-delaying task for developers.
“Mobile productivity needs apps which need security and until comprehensive, fine-grained and scalable security is available, mobile development will be stifled and real mobile productivity beyond PIM will always be a challenge,” explains Chris Marsh of IT research and consulting firm 451 Research, “[Businesses] need ways to assert a strategic security posture across the full range of app, device and network threats that mobile technologies are exposed to.”
“The demand for mobile security is higher than it has ever been, but there’s an enormous disparity in how it’s being supplied and leveraged in the market,” says Tom Tovar, CEO of Appdome. “We’ve invested more than 3 years and $30 million in developing a top notch mobile security suite and want enterprises to benefit from our continued investment in this area.”
Accelerating Secure Mobile Development
AppFusion is a new general purpose mobile integration technology that allows multiple services and SDKs, even from different vendors, to be fused to a single application. Through the intuitive, cloud-based platform, users can easily add complete mobile SDKs and other capabilities such as Appdome’s complete mobile security suite to app binaries, and render a fused application in minutes. This delivers secure mobile apps from day one and eliminates the need for long-lead integration.
With the launch of the AppFusion platform, Appdome aims to accelerate mobile development, empowering users with the ability to easily and readily solve security and integration challenges, so that developers can focus on building great apps.
“By allowing mobile developers and app providers to add a comprehensive mobile security solution to their apps, we will speed up the development of secure mobile apps, guarantee security for mobile app users from first use, and enable mobile users to discover new applications,” adds Tovar.
