  • Plug-in integration to the SDLC with no new tools for developers to learn
  • Accurate findings and developer-friendly remediation tips

Power Tools for Security Analysts: Mobile apps require purpose-built tools that enable fast, accurate, and intelligent security assessments. Mobile fragmentation presents the challenge of testing on multiple OS platforms, OS versions, devices, development languages, and even bluetooth/Wi-Ficonnected IOT. Because of mobile’s sandboxed nature, the mobile app attack surface and instrumentation techniques are fundamentally different from that of traditional web apps. With new builds released weekly or daily, overabundant false positives and two-week turnarounds just don’t cut it.
