Mobility allows organizations to offer around the clock services to their clients. It is of current use to make payments and access sensitive data from mobile applications, arousing the interest of hackers to exploit the wide mobile attack surface.
Mobile applications represent a full attack surface. To face this new vector of threats, security heads are now looking for solutions that will protect their mobile application's users from attacks and data leakage while maintaining their agility.
MOBILE APPS MANIPULATE CONFIDENTIAL DATA

67%

of apps manipulate users data (SMS, contacts, files...)

48%

of apps manipulate personal details (email, name...)

38%

of apps manipulate general data (service provider, country...)

25%

of apps manipulate identifiers (IMEI, credentials...)
MOBILE APPS MANIPULATE CONFIDENTIAL DATA
PRIVACY LAWS REQUIRE TO SECURE MOBILE APPLICATIONS
Governments and authorities around the globe have enforced data protection regulations, such as the GDPR (Europe), the FTC Act (USA), HIPAA (USA), PIPEDA (Canada), etc. so that organizations implement security measures aiming at protecting data. As mobile applications and the data they handle are regulated by these laws, mobile application security is a mandatory phase of application development.

THE EXTERNAL THREATS TARGETING MOBILE APPLICATIONS
Once distributed to the public, mobile applications run on unmanaged devices potentially being compromised or hosting malwares. If applications are not properly shielded to face threats coming from their environment, they do not resist to attacks and eventually leak the data they manipulate.
PRADEO SECURITY APPLICATION SELF-PROTECTION MODULE (IN-APP) SECURES MOBILE APPLICATIONS
The technology Pradeo Security relies on an Artificial Intelligence-based engine that delivers the most accurate threat detection technology of the market. Its 360° approach detects mobile threats operating at the application, the network and the device levels, ensuring a protection from the full spectrum of threats. Pradeo Security comes as a ready-to-use SDK to be embedded within an application source code.
1.INTEGRATION OF THE SDK
The Pradeo Security self-protection SDK embeds within applications source code. The SDK never requires any update, since any change of the security policy administrated via the Pradeo Security platform is automatically reflected at the application level.
