What’s the root of Android application security?

Android root detection

Right now, Android smartphones are dominating the market, so it stands to reason that Android apps and devices are a prime target for cybercriminals. Rooting an Android device makes it even more vulnerable to attacks. In this blog we discuss why it’s so important for app developers to understand the risks to their app and data if they are running on a compromised device.

Think you know which apps are connecting to your car? Think again!

Automotive mobile app security

As major car brands include mobile apps in vehicles, it’s important to plan the security of these apps carefully. From apps that users install on their smart phones to unlock or start their car, to the apps that are used by service technicians for maintenance and diagnostics, the stakes are high if any of these apps are tampered with. In this blog, we look at the types of apps that can be found in a car, and how vital it is to protect them with a robust security solution.

Jailbreaking is killing your app security

With the increase in use of mobile apps, the risks of being attacked also goes up. One of the most common threats against iOS apps is Jailbreaking. In this blog, we look at the impact of a device being jailbroken, why an app developer should care if their app is being used on a jailbroken device and some of the reasons Jailbreak detection isn’t being used more in apps today.

Why application security testing is only half the battle

While it is important to use application security testing tools to catch any code errors, it is not the same as protecting an application. Application protection tools are designed to make it unprofitable for a hacker to attack an application.
