Avoid Mobile Application Security Pitfalls

“Mobile applications are increasingly sources of fraud and breaches for organizations. Security and risk management leaders must follow mobile best practices to avoid data leakage from mobile devices and attacks to infrastructure.”

We believe this report will help you assess the following to avoid a modern breach:

  1. How to be properly alerted when APIs or shadow assets are added or changed
  2. Provide a framework to stop leaky data automatically when a cloud misconfiguration occurs
  3. A method to perform pre-production audits
  4. Ensure 3rd party app developers, code libraries, and SDKs adhere to your security policies
  5. How to perform authentication and authorization attacks and other hacking tests on your apps, APIs, and cloud to try to extract customer data

Learning these key techniques can help you avoid the everyday sensitive data loss, fraud, exposure of infrastructure, and non-compliance that security teams deal with. Download this Gartner report to learn about the risks and best practices for protecting modern mobile apps and preventing them from being hacked through APIs, web, or cloud vectors.
