In today’s day and age, security is a critical concern in every step of application development, from planning through deployment and beyond. The sheer volume alone of applications being developed, distributed, used, and patched over networks is rapidly expanding. As a result, security for applications must defend against the advancement and variety of cyber threats.
The market for mobile apps is predicted to generate up to $935 billion in revenue by 2023, according to Business of Apps – meaning that mobile apps are pretty much indispensable. While this is good news for those who create and publish mobile apps, there’s concern that the increased usage means more opportunities for hackers to exploit security vulnerabilities.
The Dangers of Not Securing Your Mobile Applications
Cyber threats negatively affect your business’ bottom line and its reputation. The rate of data breaches and cyberattacks continually increase every year. We are seeing companies losing millions of dollars in revenue alone not to mention the legal fees they endure. For example, Capital One had to pay around $190 million in a settlement to customers whose personal data was stolen in a data breach. The question now is – how can organizations secure their company and customers data from cyberattacks? This is where Mobile Security comes into play.
