Search for Secure Apps

3rd Party Apps on employee devices (BOYD/COPE) are storing enterprise data that is sensitive, confidential, and/or regulated. These apps are often not evil nor malicious, just line-of-business apps needed by employees. Similar to any other asset storing enterprise data, IT teams need to vet these apps on employee devices to ensure proper security controls have been implemented.


OpenScan is a security search engine for mobile apps. Unlike the App Store or Google Play, which only provide feature information, OpenScan will publish security metrics on any app in the app stores. Metrics include, but limited to, the following items:

  • Number of Critical Security Issues (Remote Exploits)
  • Number of OWASP Mobile Top 10 Issues
  • Collection of PII/PHI/PFI
  • Compliance (GDPR, HIPAA, PCI, FTC, etc.)
  • Implemented Defensive Security Features (if any)
  • Location of any Data Transmission (e.g. Overseas Countries)
  • Storage of Data on the Device
  • 50+ More Decision Metrics/Security Criteria

  • Results for each 3rd Party app can be queried via our OpenScan search engine, API, or directly published to a customer’s EMM system, such as AirWatch, MobileIron, or Good.
