COPPA Certification Assures Mobile Protect Customers Developing Children’s Mobile Apps Build Safe Apps that Protect Children’s Private Data and are Certified Compliant
Palo Alto, Calif.
Data Theorem, Inc., a leading provider of modern application security, today announced its Mobile Protect solution has earned the highest standard of online safety and privacy by achieving Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) compliance certification from kidSAFE, an independent safety certification service and seal-of-approval program.
Data Theorem is the first application security leader to put its products through the rigorous safety and privacy COPPA certification process to better support its customers who build mobile applications designed for children. As a result, Mobile Protect assures customers who develop children’s mobile apps that they are building safe apps that do not compromise children’s private data.
“We applaud Data Theorem for their commitment and diligent work to achieve COPPA certification and in partnering with kidSAFE to help child-directed app developers better manage their own COPPA compliance,” said Shai Samet, Founder and President of kidSAFE. “Our partnership with Data Theorem continues to lay a foundation for improving standards focused on the safety, security and privacy of children’s data in the digital era. We look forward to expanding our collaboration with Data Theorem in the coming years to help parents and families further protect their kids’ data while using applications connected to the Internet.”
The kidSAFE Seal Program is an independent safety certification service and seal-of-approval program designed exclusively for children-friendly websites and technologies, including kid-targeted game sites, educational services, virtual worlds, social networks, mobile apps, tablet devices, and other similar interactive services and technologies. COPPA is a U.S. law that aims to protect the privacy and personally identifying information (PII) of children under the age of 13 who use online services. The law places rules on the use of data from and about children under 13 that are stricter than those governing data about older people, and offers parents the ability to monitor and approve some of the information their children share.
“Data Theorem continues to show its commitment to making application security, privacy and safety a priority for all of our customers,” said Richard Smith, Data Theorem Field Director. “This new COPPA certification is another proof point and highlights our focus on helping to ensure that mobile apps are built to protect all end user data, especially children. With privacy continuing to be a major focus for organizations, ensuring our Mobile Protect SDK embedded in mobile apps meets the strictest regulatory requirements is extremely important, and this certification enables our customers to maintain COPPA compliance when leveraging Data Theorem in their mobile apps.”
kidSAFE has added Data Theorem to its certified directory online and has created a unique certification page for Mobile Protect at https://www.kidsafeseal.com/certifiedproducts/datatheorem_mobileprotect.html.
The Data Theorem Mobile Protect runtime application self-protection (RASP) SDK defends mobile applications from active hackers, 3rd party code, open-source libraries, commercial proprietary SDKs, data in-transit, data at-rest, and device-based attacks such as spyware, malware, jailbroken/rooted devices, etc. Data Theorem enables its customers to embed the Mobile Protect SDK library to defend their applications anytime, anywhere with run-time monitors and defensive safety measures.
