Appthority Locks Up an Information Security and SearchSecurity.com Readers’ Choice Award for Best Application Security

App Risk Management Service Recognized as a Best-in-Market Option

SAN FRANCISCO – November 13, 2014 – Today Appthority, the leader in Mobile App Risk Management, announced the company’s App Risk Management service was named a Best Application Security winner in the TechTarget Information Security™ magazine and SearchSecurity.com 2014 Readers’ Choice Awards.

The explosion of apps downloaded by employees to smartphones that are also connected to corporate information has radically increased the potential risks for enterprise data loss. With millions of apps available and new apps arriving and being updated daily, mobility and security professionals have an impossible task of determining which mobile apps conduct risky behaviors that could be a threat to the enterprise.

Only Appthority’s App Risk Management provides a comprehensive and continuous solution for effectively managing mobile app risk and protecting private enterprise data. By looking deeply into the binary code structures and identifying risky behaviors of mobile apps, App Risk Management intelligently assesses overall app risk and relevance. With a continuous analysis of risky apps, enterprises are empowered to dynamically configure mobile app risk policies for different groups of employees and monitor for compliance.

 The Information Security™ magazine and SearchSecurity.com 2014 Readers’ Choice Awards highlight the best solutions IT security professionals rely on to actually get the job done. More than 1,700 information security executives and managers were asked to assess and rate more than 400 products, spanning 22 categories. By earning this award, Appthority’s App Risk Management service is recognized as one of the best-in-class solutions in the mobile security industry.

 “We’re thrilled to see mobile and security professionals loudly reinforce that unknown risky app behaviors are a far bigger problem than mobile malware and that the Appthority App Risk Management service is the one they trust to manage enterprise app risk threats,” said Domingo Guerra, president and co-founder of Appthority. “While there is no one-size-fits-all solution for risky apps, the App Risk Management solution works with each enterprise to integrate with existing mobile device management systems, collect app inventory and automatically trigger device-level enforcement actions to remediate app risk and non-compliance by employees.”
