SAN FRANCISCO, CA (PRWEB) March 17, 2016
Appmobi (https://appmobi.com), a Mobile Security-as-a-Service (MSaaS) company that makes enterprise-grade mobile apps secure in minutes, today announced the launch of Appmobi Native Support, an all-in-one solution that instantly adds enterprise-grade security at the code level to both new and existing native iOS, Android and Windows Phone mobile apps. Appmobi is the first platform uniquely dedicated to providing enterprise-grade security to native and Cordova-based HTML5 apps with astonishingly fast deployment. The Appmobi Secure Mobile Platform easily integrates and works with a developer’s existing development tools, providing the mobile services required to build truly secure mobile apps in an easy-to-install package – all hosted on the Appmobi Secure Cloud, an enterprise’s private cloud, or on premise.
“Feature pressure and a need to develop and deploy apps quickly are some of the key reasons that the necessary security considerations are often overlooked in mobile app development,” said Marcel E. Smit, CEO of Appmobi. “As a result, many mobile apps – including native apps – are being released into the enterprise in an insecure state. Appmobi addresses this challenge head on and makes it easy to integrate security into mobile apps at the code level in a matter of minutes.”
Employees bring their own devices, and access and input data on a daily basis in an increasingly mobile way. Enterprise IT departments are being asked to cater to this new reality, but the numbers are not in their favor. Gartner forecasts that by the end of 2017 the market demand for mobile app development resources will grow at least five times faster than internal IT organizations’ capacity to deliver. Appmobi adds the deepest layer of security possible for new and existing native mobile apps and Cordova-based HTML5 mobile apps within minutes, and security can be customized – at the app level, device level, and/or the individual level.
Appmobi Native Support key features include:
- Appmobi Security Kit provides a strong foundation to quickly build secure, IT compliant apps. Security settings are completely configurable, and app data is protected at-rest, in-use, and in-transport. Developers can integrate applications with existing authentication gateways faster than ever before, and can easily select their level of data encryption and user authentication within minutes.
- Secure Push Messaging is part of the core line of defense to secure enterprise messages. It encrypts messages with multiple levels of key security (server/device), and offers enterprises the ability to force authentication on top of the encryption to keep vital information confidential.
- Secure Analytics delivers real‐time intelligence from a fully scalable, secure private‐stack, and is tested for optimal enterprise us, helping developers know what they’re protecting while they’re protecting it.
- Secure Data Store provides a safe and secure way to store encrypted data on the mobile device as well as the Appmobi Secure Mobile Platform server - mirrored from device to server with configurable syncing options.
“Appmobi solves the security challenge for the enterprise. We integrate with other enterprise mobility solutions and differentiate in that we focus solely on security,” said Mark Stutzman, CTO of Appmobi. “We offer functionality that extends beyond a core set of security capabilities. Our goal is to be the security technology layer for mobile apps utilized in support of an enterprise mobility strategy.”
The full range of Appmobi services are available on the public cloud at no charge via the Appmobi Secure Cloud. Developers can sign up on the Appmobi portal and immediately use the services without the need to sign up for Amazon Web Services (AWS), launch instances, or configure the backend. The service is free for up to 500 devices and can be seamlessly transitioned to private stack services.
