Appthority the new king of the kingdom

Mobile apps are proving to be dynamic software that everyone wants to get their hands on. Personal usage aside, agencies, companies, and businesses are finding themselves being presented with a multitude of apps which help improve their work. But what about mobile apps that are not endorsed by companies that are making their way into a corporation inadvertently? These phones bring with them loads of cell phone trackers, spyware, and other malware threats. As more and more employees begin to bring their phones and tablets into the office atmosphere, companies are being forced to examine the security risks which are present due to this. This is where Appthority comes in.

Cloud Based Security

Appthority is a cloud based security provider which has been recently appraised with $6.25 million by Venrock and U.S Venture Partners. It is another one of the cloud based security vendors to have gained popularity recently (others include Mimecast) and works exclusively to improve enterprise security and dwindle down threats from mobile phone spy software. With the recent funding it has received it will now have a much stronger chance of becoming the foremost name in app risk management.

What the platform actually does is it instantly and automatically identifies threatening behavior from mobile apps. These include both hidden and known malware/spyware, new malware/spyware which may assist in a company- wide attack, targeted attacks, the extracting of corporate data, and intellectual property theft. But the Appthority platform does not just stop there; after identification of the mobile app related security risks, it also grades them. In this way the company can make its own assessments on what fall under top priority risks and what do not. Security and risk assessment are provided hand in hand. The main aim is to make monitoring software for cell phones much harder for mobile spy apps.

The best part about using Appthority is that integrates and works in a kind of synergy with the company’s other security providers. This way it manages to add its own features such as app reputation and risk analysis to the current mobile solutions such as Mobile App Management (MAM), Enterprise App Catalogues, and so on.

Corporate Security Needs

One of the security needs that have come up over the past are related to the corporate sector when it comes to the world of mobile apps. It simply is that there is a demand for companies and enterprises to be able to monitor cell phone activity that takes place during their office timings and within their premises. Companies feel that they need to protect themselves on all fronts, just as users must feel the same when it comes to protecting themselves from cell phone spyware.

But more than just saving an organization from malware threats, Appthority also works to ensure data control and protection. Since company secrets are always a top notch priority when it comes to security needs, Appthority carries with it the ability to do that as well. Since it is a cloud based vendor, it is understood that it can easily watch over the enterprise and cover a world of apps in spite of the various platforms they may belong to. Even when employees change out the devices they bring to work (usually every six months or so), Appthority can assure that it is assessing the risky behavior of the mobile phone spy software present.

The ‘mobile security ecosystem’ is an infrastructure which if maintained allows optimum security and safety to users. But for that to take place, security providers must meet the demands of a growing technological work force. That and they must also provide the needed security to every level of an organization. A company is a multi faceted group as it is with levels of security needs. It seems that Appthority has come into the picture at the right time.
