Appthority announced today that it has been designated by MITRE as a CVE Numbering Authority (CNA) — the first focused exclusively on enterprise mobile threats. As a CNA, Appthority joins a select list of 90 leading security organizations from around the world that are authorized to assign CVE Entries to vulnerabilities for inclusion in first-time public announcements of new vulnerabilities.
“We’re proud to be given this designation for our work identifying enterprise mobile threats,” said Seth Hardy, Appthority Director of Security Research. “By providing CVE entries for mobile vulnerabilities, the results of Appthority’s security research will be easily searchable and accessible to our customers and the larger security community, making everyone safer.”
With CVE numbers assigned, Appthority’s mobile threat research can better inform enterprise security systems and the broader security community of the enterprise mobile threats uncovered by Appthority security researchers.
Appthority’s Mobile Threat Team discovers, researches, and protects its customers from mobile threats, many of which are vulnerabilities in specific mobile applications. Appthority can now fully participate in and support the CVE project and the ecosystem for the benefit of the security industry and enterprises.
