2017 TAG Cyber Security Annual Names Appthority a Distinguished Vendor

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – Sept. 8, 2016 – Appthority, the global leader in enterprise mobile threat protection, today announced the joint release of the inaugural 2017 TAG Cyber Security Annual — Practical Handbook and Reference Guide for the Working Cyber Security Professional. Appthority is part of an industry collective of 48 of the nation’s foremost cyber security vendors participating in the report, which was published by The Amoroso Group (TAG Cyber) following in-depth industry research and analysis.

“The advice in the TAG Cyber report to reload the security infrastructure with superior tools is consistent with the introduction of world-class risk management tools for mobile enterprise apps and devices,” said Paul Stich, CEO of Appthority. “Using traditional security solutions to address mobile threats prevents enterprises from leveraging scalable, best-of-breed technology as part of their modern mobile security strategy.”

The report details a new urgency for how America’s commercial, financial and utility sectors respond to escalating and increasingly complex cyber-attacks. It includes a comprehensive analysis of the cyber security industry with specific insights from C-level executives and thought leaders. Dr. Edward G. Amoroso, former chief security officer of AT&T and author of six books on cyber security, spearheaded writing and researching the report.

“Paul and his team provided indispensable help throughout this project in the area of mobile enterprise security and app risk management,” said Amoroso. “Every CISO team needs to recognize the vital role of mobility as a security solution, rather than as a problem.”

The 2017 TAG Cyber Security Annual has been written for information security and technology professionals in all industries with a special focus on U.S. infrastructure companies, including energy, telecommunications, manufacturing, health care and utilities.

The handbook is centered around a revolutionary new approach to cyber security that calls on tech leaders of the largest and most important American enterprises to explode existing infrastructure to disperse data across multiple platforms, offload sensitive information into secure cloud-based solutions and reload systems, policies and personnel to better position them to effectively defend against cyber-attacks that are not only likely, but occurring at an increasing rate.

The report is available at no cost to all users as a free download on TAG Cyber’s website. Additionally, the report’s Q&A with Appthority CEO Paul Stich can be found on the Appthority website.
