When thinking about your mobile phone, most people do not perceive it as a real threat factor as, in fact, your phone is constantly at significant risk of being a target of hackers. Also, it probably has more sensitive information about you, personal and business data than your computer. Let's see how App Protector helps.

Also, it probably has more sensitive information about you, personal and business data than your computer. Let's see how App Protector helps.

In the attempts to infect your mobile devices, cybercriminals constantly monitor the most popular apps and topics currently in demand and use this as bait for potential victims.  

  • In 2020, 97% of organizations faced mobile threats that used various attack vectors.
  • 46% of organizations had at least one employee download a malicious mobile application.

How to act against malicious mobile app software?

In order to adequately protect your mobile phones and data, which is located on the device, you need to act proactively. If you want to be ahead of the game, you need to use App Protector. 

App Protector is a Runtime Application Self-Protection which means it is software that watches your software run. It can see if someone is attacking your mobile apps, and it can do something about it. It runs in two modes – diagnostic and self-protection. Diagnostic mode periodically or on-demand monitors calls to the application and activates an alarm if suspicious behavior is detected. Self-protection mode stops the threat by terminating the user’s session by preventing the application from running.

App Protector integrates with an application or its runtime environment during execution and constantly intercepts calls to the application to check their security. 

It's configuration can be set up in various modes that are predefined via portal. This portal also enables modifications, which are done on the fly when online implementation is selected. If you only opt-in for offline implementation, the portal is not necessary.

Another great benefit of using the portal is that it can collect security events and create reports based on that information.

The portal is a solution developed by ASEE that offers a unique user management experience and more App Protector configuration options. To take the best out of it for your business, contact us for a consultation call.

Many mobile app development teams prioritize time to market over security - this leaves applications vulnerable to attacks.

App Protector - React and protect!

App Protector is different from other security solutions because it keeps track of how your apps are behaving and the context of that behavior. When the app starts having an unusual behavior, App Protector immediately stops the application, mitigating all the potential risks, and starts sending alerts to your team and mobile device user - without any human intervention. 

One other thing it can do is to distinguish actual attacks and legitimate requests for information - this reduces false positives

App Protector monitors and protects an application even when it continually updates, and it gives you a complete insight into what is happening within your application.

Does App Protector affect the design and usability of the application on which it is running? 

The answer is simple – no. App Protector operates as a separate and self-sufficient SDK on application run-time. It doesn’t require any changes to your mobile phone applications, and you do not need to worry about slowing them down.

It fights of mobile application threats such as:

Enterprises need to be sure they have a comprehensive security solution for employee mobile devices in place.

How does App Protector implementation work?

App Protector implementation is smooth and easy, assuring that there is:

  • Zero downtime.
  • No risk of breaking an app.
  • None of major source code changes.
  • No false positives.
  • Zero routine tuning.
  • No unacceptable performance overhead.

It integrates into old, proprietary applications or new ones.

You guessed it, we have it all - SDK, web portal. If you still have some App Protector questions, we would be happy to help you. Just reach out with zero commitment.
