New IBM software to aid secure mobile app development
IBM has announced new software to help organisations develop more secure mobile applications.
The software will enable companies to implement tighter security measures into their mobile apps at the initial design stage, enabling vulnerabilities to be detected early in the development process.
“We are seeing increased demand from companies looking to extend their corporate applications to mobile devices,” said Stuart Dross, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Cigital, Inc.
“The ability to scan native and hybrid mobile applications for security vulnerabilities is a major step forward in securing sensitive data and mitigating security risks.”
The rapid take-up of business intelligence apps in recent years has led to mobile security becoming a top priority for security executives and CIOs.
